Hernandez

Things just keep getting worse for Aaron Hernandez.

A Fall River Judge has denied his legal team’s request for dismissal of charges, meaning the former New England Patriot’s trial for the murder of Odin Lloyd will continue on as scheduled.

Hernandez’s lawyers argued that prosecutors hadn’t shown probable cause to sustain the murder charge against Hernandez in the death of Odin Lloyd and hadn’t presented any evidence or motive for the slaying.

The Bristol Superior Court judge said in her ruling Thursday that probable cause, and a defendant’s guilt, can be established by circumstantial evidence, and prosecutors don’t need to prove a motive to secure a murder conviction.

Hernandez continues to be held without bail since pleading not guilty to Lloyd’s murder. His trial is scheduled to start January 9.
