Hernandez Headed Back to Court for Bail Hearing

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.
