Aaron Hernandez Pleads Not Guilty To Two Murder Charges
New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez pleaded not guilty today (May 28) on two more murder charges for killing two men in 2012 after a run-in at a Boston nightclub.
These charges are on top of the murder trial of Odin Lloyd in 2013.
Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado were gunned down after what the prosecutor explained as an accident.
“Shortly thereafter, Daniel de Abreu, while dancing nearby, accidentally bumped into the defendant, causing the defendant’s drink to partially spill. The defendant became angered and increasingly agitated, particularly after Mr. de Abreu smiled and did not apologize,” Haggan said, adding that there was no argument or physical confrontation between de Abreu and Hernandez.
