Mom, Girlfriend of Hernandez’s Alleged Victim Set to Testify
FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — Testimony in the murder trial of ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez is set to resume with the girlfriend and mother of the man Hernandez allegedly killed taking the stand.
Proceedings began last week but were suspended Monday when another snowstorm hit.
The former New England Patriots standout is accused of the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating his fiancée's sister. On Friday, Lloyd's girlfriend, Shaneah Jenkins, testified that Lloyd and Hernandez were cordial but not close. She is expected to be back on the stand Tuesday.
Lloyd's mother, Ursula Ward, also is expected to testify. She was overcome with emotion and had to leave the courtroom twice last week when a prosecutor showed graphic photos of her son's body at the industrial park where he was found.
