Authorities in Massachusetts will waste little time to officially file charges against Ernest Wallace.
Accused of serving as an accessory after the fact in connection with the murder of Odin Lloyd, Wallace recently was transported from Florida to Massachusetts. Per multiple reports, the Bristol County District Attorney’s office says that Wallace will be arraigned on Monday.
The courtroom proceeding could include new facts, information, and/or clues regarding the prosecution’s case against Wallace and Aaron Hernandez, who is jailed without bail for allegedly orchestrating Lloyd’s murder.
Carlos Ortiz also is in custody, on weapons charges. He reportedly met with police the day before Hernandez was arrested.
A grand jury is investigating the case, and eventually will issue indictments. The secret nature of the process means that little details will be made available regarding the witnesses who testify and the things they say.
