Bill Belichick, Robert Kraft on witness list for Aaron Hernandez trial
The list is for Hernandez's upcoming trial on first-degree murder charges in the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd. Jury selection is scheduled to begin on Jan. 9.
A Massachusetts judge recently granted a request by Hernandez's legal team to have the trial for the 2012 killing of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado delayed in order to allow them to prepare for the Lloyd trial.
There are over 300 names on the witness list, including Hernandez's fiancee, Shanyanna Jenkins, and his cousin, Tanya Singleton, who pleaded guilty to a criminal contempt charge in August.
Hernandez's defense team told prosecutors it plans to call an expert on the effects of PCP and marijuana on the brain to testify in the case, according to The Hartford Courant.
Belichick and Kraft were interviewed in August 2013 by investigators in the case, The Boston Globe reported.
