ATTLEBORO, Mass. -- Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was indicted Thursday on first-degree murder and weapons charges in the death of a friend whose bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park about a mile from the ex-players home. The six-count grand jury indictment charges Hernandez with killing 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandezs girlfriend. Hernandez, 23, pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in June, and he is being held without bail. He had a brief court appearance in Attleboro on Thursday afternoon. Afterward, his lawyer Michael Fee said the defence was pleased to be on a path to a jury trial and was looking forward to testing the prosecutions evidence. "There has been an incredible rush to judgment in this case," and the state doesnt have enough evidence to prove the charges, he said. Hernandez signed a contract last summer worth $40 million but was cut by the Patriots within hours of his June 26 arrest, when police led the handcuffed athlete from his home as news cameras rolled. He could face life in prison if convicted. The Bristol County grand jury also indicted two others in the case: Hernandez associate Ernest Wallace and Hernandezs cousin Tanya Singleton. Wallace is charged with accessory to murder after the fact. Prosecutors have said he was with Hernandez the night Lloyd died. Singleton is charged with criminal contempt for refusing to testify before the grand jury, Bristol County District Attorney Samuel Sutter said. She has been jailed in Massachusetts since Aug. 1. A recent affidavit said that, after Lloyds killing, Singleton bought Wallace a bus ticket. Carlos Ortiz, who faces a weapons charge in district court connected to the case, was not indicted. Sutter said Hernandezs arraignment in Superior Court, where the case now moves, could come next week. A jogger found Lloyds body on June 17 in a North Attleborough industrial park. His mother, Ursula Ward, called him a loving son who never hurt anyone. Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyds killing because he was upset at him for talking to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub days earlier. They say Hernandez, Wallace and Ortiz picked Lloyd up at his home in Bostons Dorchester neighbourhood early on June 17 and then drove to the industrial park. Shortly before his death, authorities say, Lloyd sent his sister text messages asking if she had seen who he was with. "NFL," he wrote. "Just so you know." Moments later, authorities say, Lloyd was dead after gunshots rang out near a warehouse after he apparently got out of the car for what he thought was a bathroom break. Authorities have not said who fired the shots, but according to court documents, Ortiz told police in Florida that Wallace said it was Hernandez. Wallace earlier pleaded not guilty in district court to a charge of accessory to murder after the fact. Ortiz pleaded not guilty to the firearm charge. A judge ordered Wallace held on $500,000 bail and Ortiz held without bail. Authorities have said they havent found the murder weapon, which they believe was a .45-calibre Glock pistol. But they recovered a magazine for .45-calibre bullets in Hernandezs Hummer as well as ammunition of the same calibre inside a condo he rented in Franklin, Mass. Prosecutors say they have video surveillance from Hernandezs home showing him before and after Lloyds killing holding what appears to be a Glock. Authorities also recovered a shell casing that matched those found at the homicide scene after tracking the rental car Hernandez was in the night Lloyd died. Since then, Boston police have asked police in Hernandezs hometown of Bristol, Conn., for their help with the probe into Lloyds homicide as well as a 2012 double homicide near a Boston nightclub. A Connecticut police lieutenant said authorities searched the home of Hernandezs uncle, seizing an SUV sought in the double killing that had been rented in Hernandezs name. Two men died in the July 2012 shooting in Bostons South End, with witnesses reporting that gunfire came from inside a grey SUV with Rhode Island tags. Boston police havent reported any arrests in the deaths of 29-year-old Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and 28-year-old Safiro Teixeira Furtado and wont comment on whether Hernandez is a suspect. Hernandez is also facing civil litigation after a Connecticut man filed a lawsuit asserting the former player shot him in the face in February after they argued at a Miami strip club. Alexander Bradley, who says he lost an eye, told police at the time he didnt know who shot him. Also Thursday, Hernandezs lawyers asked an Attleboro judge to order the state to stop "deliberately misleading or making false statements" to potential witnesses. They claim detectives visiting a potential witness at a Connecticut prison to interview him told the man this month they were there "to help Aaron out." Sutter called it an allegation and said he hadnt yet reviewed the defence motion. Shelvin Mack Jersey . -- Aaron Rodgers isnt out for revenge in Green Bays season opener. Zach Randolph Jersey .

RIDGEDALE, Mo. -- Kenny Perry and Russ Cochran teamed to birdie the final three holes for a share of the lead with Jeff Sluman and Fred Funk on Friday in the Champions Tours Legends of Golf. The leaders were at 10-under 61 after their better-ball rounds on the Buffalo Ridge course. "For the most part we hung in there, got the ball in the fairway and had a couple chances most of the time," Cochran said. "Kenny had the eye and when a guys got that, you want to get out of his way." In Savannah, Georgia, last year, Sluman teamed with Brad Faxon to win the Champions Division. Sluman turned to Funk after Faxon was unable to play because of previous commitment. "Were just really comfortable together, No. 1, but we got off to a really good start and that helped," Funk said. "We made some really good putts." Other players opened at Top of the Rock, the first par-3 course used in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event. The teams of Tom Watson-Andy North, Nick Faldo Eduardo Romero and Craig Stadler-Kirk Triplett had the best rounds there, finishing at 5-under 49 after nine holes of alternate shot and nine of better ball. In the Legends Division for players 65 and older, Bruce Fleisher and Larry Nelson took the lead with a 62 at Buffalo Ridge. The teams of Jack Nicklaus-Gary Player, Lee Trevino-Mike Hill and Graham Marsh-John Bland shot 1-over 55 on the par-3 course, the site of the final rounds in each division. "We never seemed to get the right club in our hand," said Nicklaus, who designed the par-3 course. "All day long were struggling with a club, even on the seccond nine.dddddddddddd ... We made two bogeys on the alternate shot because we didnt have the right clubs." Play was delayed twice because of rain and lightning and players were allowed to lift, clean and place their golf balls on the Buffalo Ridge course. Perry and Cochran birdied four of the first five holes and eagled the par-5 eighth -- Perry hit a hybrid to 6 feet -- in a 6-under 29 on the front nine. The Kentucky duo also birdied No. 10 and closed with three more. "Kenny came in there and really got things started," Cochran said. "He just had a terrific front side, especially, and really the whole day. ... He made many birdies and an eagle. Never really missed a shot. So as far as I was concerned, I was trying to fill in." Funk and Sluman played the first nine in 7-under 28 and added three birdies on the back nine. "We both played really honestly solid golf all day," Sluman said. "I think after 12 holes we each contributed like on six holes each, so we were just playing solid golf, hitting it down the middle and giving ourselves two birdie chances every hole." Sluman capped the round with a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th, their fifth birdie putt of 20 feet for longer. Sluman and Funk each holed 40- and 30-foot birdie putts. The teams of Jay Haas-Peter Jacobsen and Billy Andrade-Tommy Armour III shot 62 at Buffalo Ridge, and Tom Lehman-Bernhard Langer and Corey Pavin-Duffy Waldorf followed at 63. Jim Colbert and Jim Thorpe were second in the Legends Division at 66. Butch Baird-Al Geiberger and Hubert Green-Allen Doyle shot 67. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
