Witness: Murder Victim, Hernandez Often Smoked Pot Together
FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) - The girlfriend of the man former NFL player Aaron Hernandez is accused of killing has taken the stand for a third day, testifying that the two often smoked marijuana together and hung out during family gatherings.
Shaneah Jenkins is the sister of Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins. She is also the girlfriend of Odin Lloyd, who was killed in June 2013.
Hernandez's defense team has said the men were friends and Hernandez had no reason to kill Lloyd. Lloyd's body was found riddled with bullets in an industrial park near Hernandez's home.
Shaneah Jenkins testified about occasions when Lloyd and Hernandez spent time together but reiterated that they weren't close.
Her sister sat in the front row behind Hernandez, taking notes while she spoke. The two didn't make eye contact.
