Aaron Hernandez guilty of 1st degree murder
Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez was found guilty of first degree murder for the death of his friend Odin Lloyd.
He was also found guilty of unlawful possession of firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.
Aaron Hernandez will face life in prison without the possibility of parole.
His legal woes are not over by any means. He is charged in a double murder in the Boston-area. Information about that case was brought into the Odin Lloyd murder case.
Aaron Hernandez told his girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins, who was sobbing as the verdict was read, to “stay strong.” She faces a perjury charge for lying 26 times to the grand jury. It should also be noted that her sister was the girlfriend of Odin Lloyd. The family has been torn apart by this murder.
