Two New Murder Charges for Ex-Patriot Aaron Hernandez

Aron-Hernandez-1

BOSTON (AP) – Prosecutors say former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez, who already faces a murder charge in a man’s shooting death last year, has been indicted on new murder charges in an unrelated 2012 double slaying in Boston.

The victims in that killing, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, were shot to death as they sat in a car in Boston’s South End on July 16, 2012. Police have said they were shot by someone who drove up alongside in an SUV and opened fire.

Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley said at a news conference Thursday the victims were “ambushed and executed as they drove home.”

Lawyers for Hernandez did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment. Hernandez awaits trial in the separate 2013 shooting death near his home of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd in North Attleborough.
