Aaron Hernandez was indicted today on a first-degree murder charge in the death of Odin Lloyd, the friend whose body was found near his house.
The six-county grand jury indictment charges the former New England Patriots star with killing 27-year-old Lloyd, a semi-pro football player.
The indictment against Hernandez also contains weapons charges.
Lloyd was reportedly dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins, whose role in a potential cover-up has yet to be established.
Hernandez, 23, pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in June, and he is being held, in solitary confinement, without bail at a county jail.
His lawyers have maintained that the case against the former NFL standout is circumstantial and say that he will be able to clear his name.
