Former NFL player Aaron Hernandez was hit with several charges at his arraignment in North Attleborough, Mass., Wednesday, including first-degree murder.
The ex-New England Patriot is alleged to have masterminded and carried out the “execution” of his former associate, Odin Lloyd, 27, himself a semi-pro football player.
The Patriots signed Hernandez to a five-year, $37.5 million ($15.95 million guaranteed) extension last August and released the tight end roughly 90 minutes after he was arrested at his North Attleborough home. He is being held without bail.
Here’s the full list of the charges Hernandez, 23, faces, as compiled by USA Today:
