Jurors to deliberate for 6th day in Aaron Hernandez trial
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.
