FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) _ The girlfriend of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez is due to be arraigned in Massachusetts on a perjury charge connected to the murder case against him.

Shayanna Jenkins is scheduled to appear in Fall River Superior Court on Tuesday afternoon. She was indicted on a single count of perjury in September related to testimony she gave the Bristol County grand jury hearing evidence in the case.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-pro football player from Boston. Lloyd had been dating Jenkins’ sister.

Jenkins and Hernandez lived together in North Attleborough, Mass., near where Lloyd’s body was found. They have a young child.

Three others, including Hernandez’s cousin, are also facing charges in the case.
