Hernandez fiancee bid to toss evidence opposed
FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) – Massachusetts prosecutors are opposing a bid by the fiancee of ex-New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez to suppress evidence in the perjury case against her.
Documents filed Monday in Bristol County Superior Court urge a judge to reject Shayanna Jenkins’ request to have evidence from cellphones belonging to her and Hernandez and from their home surveillance system tossed out.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the June 2013 death of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd. Jenkins has pleaded not guilty to perjury. Prosecutors accuse her of lying dozens of times during testimony before the grand jury that indicted him.
A judge has also ruled that a draft questionnaire for prospective jurors be unavailable to the public. She says that will aid the selection of an impartial jury in January.
