NFL Player Aaron Hernandez Charged with Murder

Posted: Updated:

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been charged with murder and weapon counts today.

The charges came from a Massachusetts District Court after Boston semi-pro football player, Odin Lloyd, was found dead in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's house.

Family members say Lloyd was dating Hernandez's fiancee's sister.

Hernandez was escorted out of his home by police this morning, and less than 2 hours after the charges the NFL team officially announced that he has been cut from the team.

Officials ruled Lloyd's death a homicide but did not say how he died.

At least three search warrants were issued in connection to the death, but Hernandez's attorney Michael Fee isn't commenting on the investigation.
