FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) _ Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez is to be arraigned on charges that he attacked a handcuffed inmate and threatened to kill a guard and his family while at a county jail in Dartmouth.

Also Monday, lawyers for Hernandez are expected to ask a judge to dismiss the murder charge he faces in connection with last June’s killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez’s lawyers say the charges should be dismissed because prosecutors have failed to show probable cause that Hernandez killed Lloyd or even took part in the slaying.

Two Hernandez associates are also charged in the case.

Hernandez is also charged with killing two men in Boston in 2012.
