An attempt by lawyers for former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez to suppress evidence from both a cellphone and home video surveillance during the investigation of the killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd was rejected Monday, reports the Boston Globe.

Bristol Superior Court Judge E. Susan Garsh said the authorities were justified in seizing video footage from Hernandez’s home. Garsh has not ruled on other electronics seized from the home.

Prosecutors have alleged Hernandez killed Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancée, on June 17, 2013, and left his body less than a mile from Hernandez’s home.

Hernandez is also separately charged with killing two men in South Boston in July 2012. Prosecutors in that case said Hernandez followed the two victims after one of them spilled his drink on Hernandez after bumping into him at a club.
