Whenever a headline about a guy’s upcoming murder trial contains the term “first,” that’s not good.
For former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, the first of two murder trial has been moved from October 2014 to January 2015. Specifically, jury selection begins on January 3, and the trial starts on January 9.
Whenever the trial begins (and it could be delayed one or more additional times), Hernandez will face the accusation that he killed Odin Lloyd in June 2013.
Hernandez’s second murder trial, which accuses him of killing Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, is scheduled to begin on May 28, 2015. That date also is tentative.
