Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been charged with murder in connection with the death of a former semi-pro football player.
23-year-old Hernandez was arraigned this morning in a Massachusetts courtroom.
In addition to murder, Hernandez has been charged with 5 gun-related charges. He has pled not guilty.
Prosecutors say there was communication between the victim and Hernandez just 10 hours before the victim's death.
As TMZ reported, Hernandez was arrested today at his Massachusetts home after 27-year-old Odin Lloyd's body was discovered close to the NFL star's home last week. It appears Odin was shot through the back of the head.
Lloyd is believed to have been dating the sister of Aaron's fiancee at the time of his murder.
Details surrounding the murder are still unclear.
