Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder Wednesday in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old acquaintance whose bullet-riddled body was found less than a mile from the football player’s home in North Attleborough, Mass.
Hernandez also faces five gun-related charges in connection with the case.
He entered a plea of not guilty to all the charges. He was denied bail.
The New England Patriots waived Hernandez just before his arrest at his home.
