Aaron Hernandez murder trial to start Oct. 6, judge to consider defense motions
Prosecutors have said 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.
Lawyers for Hernandez wanted the murder charge tossed for a lack of evidence. His defense team also wanted surveillance video from Hernandez's home and evidence seized from cellphones and other devices excluded from the case. The judge in the case, Susan Garsh, said she would rule on those motions at a later time.
Hernandez is also separately charged with killing two men in South Boston in July 2012 after being indicted by a grand jury. 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.
Hernandez, 24, pleaded not guilty to all charges and several other weapons charges.attacked another inmate and threatened to kill a guard and his family while at a county jail.
