Prosecutors Seek Aaron Hernandez Phone Records From Jail
Massachusetts prosecutors are seeking recordings of phone calls former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez made from jail during which they allege he used “coded messages” to communicate about the murder case against him.
Prosecutors filed the motion in Fall River Superior Court on Thursday. It says Hernandez also discussed during jailhouse calls his “belief about his criminal liability” and “the extent of his control over persons charged as accessories.”
Prosecutors also want a judge to order the Bristol County sheriff to turn over records of visits Hernandez had, including from his fiancee and cousin. They both face charges related to the case.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the killing of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston man who was dating the sister of his fiancee. (Associated Press)
