ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) _ Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, a Bristol native, will be back in court for a bail review hearing, a day after he was charged with murder.
A spokesman for the Bristol County sheriff says the 23-year-old Hernandez will be in a Fall River court Thursday afternoon.
A judge ordered Hernandez held without bail on Wednesday on a charge of murder and five weapons counts.
Hernandez is accused in what a prosecutor called the execution-style shooting of Odin Lloyd, a friend and a semi-pro football player. Prosecutors say Hernandez was upset that Lloyd had talked to certain people at a nightclub.
Hernandez’s lawyer called the case against his client circumstantial.
Hernandez was arrested Wednesday morning and cut by the Patriots less than two hours later.
