Former New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez was indicted today for the murder of two men in July 2012, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.
The indictment stems from the alleged murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. Authorities say the pair were killed shortly after they left a nightclub with three of their friends on July 16, 2012.
Hernandez is currently in jail awaiting trial in the 2013 killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. Hernandez pleaded not guilty to that murder charge.
