Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez's girlfriend and cousin were indicted by a grand jury Friday in the ongoing investigation of the Odin Lloyd murder, multiple media outlets report.

Hernandez's girlfriend, Shayana Jenkins, was indicted by a grand jury on one charge of perjury.

His cousin, Tanya Singleton, was indicted on a charge of conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact.

Two other Hernandez associates were indicted by the grand jury as well. Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace were each indicted on a single count of accessory to murder after the fact.

Hernandez is behind bars and held without bail accused of the June 17 murder of the 27-year old Lloyd. Lloyd's body was found in an industrial park in North Attleborough, Mass., near Hernandez's home.
