Hernandez Girlfriend Case Back Before Judge

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) _ Aaron Hernandez’s girlfriend, charged with lying to the grand jury that indicted the former New England Patriot on a murder charge, has another court hearing.

An attorney for Shayanna Jenkins is due in Fall River Superior Court on Monday, but the judge has said Jenkins does not have to be there herself.

Jenkins is free on personal recognizance after pleading not guilty to a single count of perjury.

Prosecutors allege Jenkins lied to the grand jury that indicted Hernandez, including about disposing of evidence at his request. The ex-player has pleaded not guilty in the killing of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating Jenkins’ sister.

Prosecutor William McCauley has said that most of Jenkins’ testimony was “not credible.”
