Report: Aaron Hernandez indicted on 2 murder charges from 2012 deaths

Jared Wickerham

Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez was indicted today for the killings of two Boston men in 2012.

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is already in the middle of a murder trial for the death of former Semi Pro professional football player Odin L. Lloyd.

Now, Hernandez was indicted today for the murder of two other men in a 2012 shooting, according to Mary Cramer of the Boston Globe.

Hernandez is accused of murdering Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado. The two men were shot to death on July 16, 2012, while stopped at a traffic light by someone who drove up alongside them in an SUV with Rhode Island plates and opened fire.

Hernandez already faced charges in the murder of Odin L. Lloyd of Boston, who was found slain in a North Attleborough industrial park near Hernandez’s home in June 2013.

The new charges raise the disturbing possibility that Hernandez played games during the 2012-2013 season after murdering two men.

Hernandez now faces murder chargers from killing three separate men.

He was arrested in June of 2013 morning and taken to the North Attleboro Police station to be booked in connection with the murder of Lloyd. The body of Lloyd was found June 17, about one mile away from Hernandez’s North Attleborough home. The death was ruled a homicide.

The Patriots then announced they'd released Hernandez less than two hours after the arrest. Hernandez’s once promising NFL career is now nothing more than a footnote.
