As expected for weeks, a grand jury has indicted former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez for the murder of Odin Lloyd, via the Boston Globe.

The indictment comes on the same day Hernandez was due in court for a probable cause hearing, making the hearing moot.

By indicting Hernandez, the grand jury has found that probable cause exists to believe Hernandez killed Lloyd.

Hernandez will remain jailed without bail. Eventually, a trial date will be set.

Another grand jury reportedly is considering whether Hernandez killed two men in July 2012. He could be indicted for those murders at any time.
