Two others indicted in Hernandez case
ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WHDH) -- Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was one of three people indicted by a grand jury Thursday.
Ernest Wallace, a friend of Hernandez, was indicted by a Bristol County grand jury on a charge of being an accessory after the fact of first degree murder. Prosecutors say Wallace and another man, Carlos Ortiz, were with Hernandez the night semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd was killed.
Wallace turned himself into police in Florida in the days after Lloyd’s death after authorities put out a wanted poster for him.
Wallace is due back in court Monday.
Tanya Singleton, Hernandez’s cousin, was also indicted Thursday. Court paperwork states she bought a bus ticket for Wallace to go to Florida. She also, allegedly, has not been cooperating with investigators and refused to testify before a grand jury. She has been held at the Suffolk County House of Corrections since the beginning of August.
Singleton will be arraigned on a charge of contempt on Friday.
At this time, no indictment has been filed against Ortiz.
