FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — Jurors in the murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez are expected to continue working toward a verdict for a sixth day.

The seven women and five men on the jury are due back in court at 9 a.m. Tuesday to resume deliberations.

They have already deliberated for more than 27 hours since they got the case last week.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the killing of Odin Lloyd in June 2013. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.

Hernandez’s lawyer acknowledged his client was there when Lloyd was shot, but pinned it on two of Hernandez’s friends.

Prosecutors said Hernandez killed Lloyd and thought he could get away with it because no one would believe it was him.

beginning to look like his money and fame walks. this is one really dangerous guy with no boundaries. If he walks I fear for whoever testified against him.

I feel the same way. He is extremely dangerous and needs a great deal of therapy. I am so upset that this trial is all circumstantial but it all points to him. Ortiz and Wallace didn.t even have a bone in this fight. That’s probably why he brought them for the ride so that if was implicated that they would take the fall for him. His defense atty. stung them in closing stating that Aaron was there but didn’t pull the trigger. Their dumb asses should of turned state’s evidence to get lighter sentence, now they are screwed. He still has double homicide and Bradley’s shooting. He is a serial killer playing for the no.1 NFL team. So sad, his girlfriend would of been next, babysitter and her friend, Wallace and Ortiz. Hopefully they found the list of victims in an journal. He is dangerous.
