Still no verdict in Aaron Hernandez double-murder trial

AP

The second day of deliberations in the double-murder trial against former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez ended with the jury asking a question. The third day ended with the jury asking to go home for the day.

Via multiple reports, the presiding judge dismissed the jury after the foreperson indicated that the jury had gone as far as it could for the day.

The jury has not yet indicated any difficult in reaching a verdict. Two questions have been asked as they work through eight different charges against Hernandez in a trial that arises from the July 2012 shooting deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

Deliberations will continue on Wednesday in the case against Hernandez, who previously was convicted of shooting and killing Odin Lloyd in June 2013.

    This should have been wrapped up in 15 minutes….

    Good one.
    Realistically though the charges as presented are probably making for a lot of discussion. If they decide he is guilty of murder they then need to decide whether it’s murder 1 or murder 2 and in one of the cases the charges allow for them to find him culpable of extreme atrocity or cruelty. There’s also the 3 attempted murder charges pertaining to the other people in the car and the assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for the non-fatal shooting of one of them. Then there’s the witness intimidation charge for shooting Bradley in the face to silence him about the killings. And just for a cherry on top they have a charge for unlawful possession of a firearm to consider.

    Who wants to bet that if he didn’t have his previous conviction, belicheat would sign him?

  3. This and the last trial were such a joke. In the last trial, they say he was guilt of murdering that guy because he killed these two guys. In this trial, they say he was guilty of killing these guys because he killed the other guy from the last trial. If he was white, he’d be playing for the Patriots right now and would have won a massive civil suit against the police.

  4. brian, while i agree there is no direct evidence linking him to the other murder, the fact is he was there that night in the quarry. I agree this case is a little suspect, mostly because the only witness is another dangerous felon…but the fact is, hernandez lost his way a long time ago..

    Outside of not a word of that being true you’ve really summed it up.

    Hey Kraft

    Arrogance, deceit and cheating are incurable diseases …
    ————————————–
    And in Indy, so are sucking, tanking, losing and crying. Luckyforus indeed.

    Tim Tebow won a championship with this guy. Both of them don’t play football anymore.

    Tebow plays baseball and Hernandez plays don’t drop the soap.

  9. There is a slight chance that he didn’t do it but long jury deliberations don’t always mean there is a rational discussion going on. I’m sure there are various scenarios where minutiae gets rehashed based on level options but there is also a chance that there is an illogical fanboy or hater that doesn’t really care one bit about changing their opinion.

  10. It’s funny how the Patriots lose a very talented, yet psychotic tight end, (never mind Collins, Jones and a first round draft pick among others). And they still win super bowls. Can you say “wagon”?

    ****

    They cheated for their first 3, and got lucky for their last 2.

    The steelers are a better franchise 6 > 5*

  12. Innocent.
    Get this man a helmet.
    He can still kill it on the field!
    But nope, he’ll be blackballed even when found innocent.

  13. I mean a team that has been fined more than anyone else, hd their star QB suspended for being generally aware, is guilty BTW.

  14. How does one equate the decision by Coach Belichick to draft Hernandez to an assumption that he or the Patriots knew the depths
    of his sickness. There was one incident of violence in his college years,
    but the primary concern was his use of weed. The use of weed does not
    necessarily put an NFL team on notice that the player is a sociopath
    likely to commit murder.
    I agree that Hernandez is a sick …sociopath that deserves to spend the rest of his life in jail, where he can live with similar animals.
    I do not agree that Coach Belichick and the Patriots should be criticized any more than teams that have drafted known marijuana
    abusers. This includes many teams like my Steelers who drafted a wide
    receiver with a known weed issue ….the Cowboys are also an example
    drafting Randy Gregory. Despite the negative background of the
    players the Steelers and Cowboys took a chance on…neither has graduated to the criminal big leagues like Hernandez.
    In summary like many employers it is difficult to identify and single out sick sociopaths like Hernandez.

  15. Is it just me or does it look like AH has put on a few extra pounds? Must have found a good source for pruno.

    Best case scenario would be if he was found hanging in his jail cell. Would save a lot of tax dollars on this low-life piece of crap delta bravo.

    Does it really matter?

    The guy is already in prison for the rest of his life.

    ——————–

    Not really. If he were to skate on this one it is possible he would be eligible for parole at some point in the future. A sentence of life imprisonment doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be in prison the rest of your life.

    And if he does skate, which is a definite possibility, it is because the state did not prove its case. The jurors have a responsibility to weigh only the evidence presented, and there was little to no credible evidence presented. Doesn’t mean he didn’t do it, but they have to prove it to get a conviction.
