Judge agrees to delay Hernandez trial in double-killing

The Associated Press

BOSTON — A judge has agreed to a postponement in the next murder trial for former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

Hernandez is charged with killing two men in Boston in 2012. Jury selection for the trial was scheduled to begin Jan. 19, but Suffolk Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke on Wednesday granted a motion by defense attorneys and prosecutors for a postponement.

Both sides cited a pending appeal over evidence in the case.

No new trial date was set.

Hernandez grew up in Bristol, Connecticut. He has pleaded not guilty to gunning down Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after a chance encounter at a Boston nightclub. He already is serving a life sentence after being convicted this year of the 2013 killing of a man who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.
