Last summer, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft were interviewed by investigators probing the alleged murders committed by former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, according to a report from The Boston Globe.
The interviews -- dated August 20 of last year -- were included in a volume of evidence supplied to Hernandez's defense team and filed in Bristol District Court. The evidence also included 33 pages of text messages between Belichick and Hernandez, though the contents of the messages were not included in the court filing.
Hernandez is facing charges of murdering three men, in two different counties. Hernandez's troubles continued even after he was jailed: in December, he attacked another inmate in Bristol County Jail.
Hernandez also faces several weapons charges in relation to the two cases, in addition to civil suits from the families of the victims. Hernandez entered not guilty pleas in both cases.
The trial date for the Odin Lloyd case - one of the people Hernandez is accused of killing - is tentatively set for October 6.
