Bristol County Judge rejected Aaron Hernandez’s request to move murder trial

aaron hernandezA Massachusetts judge on Thursday denied a request from former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez to move his trial in the fatal shooting of a semi-professional football player to a different county. Hernandez’s attorney’s feel that the jury pool for Bristol County could be poisoned because of how many know about the incident according to Yahoo Sports.

Hernandez, a former tight end for the Patriots, is charged in the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiance. Lloyd’s body was found in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough.

In court Thursday, Hernandez’s lawyer, Michael Fee, urged a judge to move the trial out of Bristol County, citing what he called ”sensational and inflammatory” media coverage he said has prejudiced potential jurors against Hernandez. Fee said the press coverage of Hernandez has been ”relentless” and has often included references to other crimes, including separate charges against Hernandez in Suffolk County in the 2012 killings of two Boston men.
