BOSTON (AP) — Ex-New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez is expected to be in a Boston courtroom Thursday facing a charge of trying to silence a witness in a double murder case against him by shooting the man in the face.

Prosecutors say Hernandez shot the witness in 2013 in Florida after the man made a remark about a 2012 double slaying. In that case, Hernandez is accused of gunning down two men over a spilled drink.

Prosecutors haven’t identified the man, but it’s clear from earlier court proceedings it’s his former friend, Alexander Bradley.

Hernandez was convicted last month in the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, who was dating his fiancée’s sister.

Lloyd’s mother will go before a judge in New Bedford Thursday to ask for a preliminary injunction barring the sale of Hernandez’s Hummer.
