Former Patriots Player Aaron Hernandez Found Not Guilty in Double Murder Trial

Former Patriots Player Aaron Hernandez Found Not Guilty in Double Murder Trial

Hernandez's defense team cites a lack of evidence as the reason for the acquittal and claims Hernandez's friend, who testified against him, is the actual killer.

The jurors reportedly deliberated for nearly six days and about 36 hours before reaching the verdict on Friday.

Hernandez, 27, already is serving a life sentence in the 2013 killing shooting of Oldin Lloyd, who had been dating the sister of Hernandez' fiancee at the time of murder. He will be transferred to another part of the state to continue serving a life sentence for a prior murder conviction.

Defense attorney Ronald Sullivan said Bradley was the risky one, and added this about his client: "Aaron is a attractive young man, a happy-go-lucky young man". In retaliation, Hernandez allegedly opened fire on an automobile containing the man responsible and others.

Unlike the most recent double murder case against Hernandez, the argument that Hernandez killed Lloyd in Bristol County was "much stronger", both Tracy and Weymouth said. He was sentenced to serve between 4 and 5 years in prison for that conviction. Hernandez also mouthed "I love you" to his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, as reported by USA Today. He is now imprisoned for shooting up a club in Hartford, Connecticut, in an unrelated incident. It was Bradley that said that Aaron Hernandez became enraged when de Abreu spilled a drink on him and opened fire on their auto later that night.

"These were two hardworking, humble, Cape Verdean immigrants", Conley said. The incident cost Bradley his right eye.

In addition to the evidence related to the murders, the prosecution delivered testimony from Alexander Bradley.

"We are extraordinarily thankful to the jury", Mr Sullivan said.

Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado were shot to death as they waited at a stoplight in the early morning of July 16, 2012. The two eventually got into Hernandez's SUV and drove around the when they spotted de Abreu with his four friends getting into a BMW.
