We still don’t know what Aaron Hernandez will be charged with. But he will be charged with it later today.

According to WCVB, Hernandez will be arraigned at 2:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

It had been reported that Hernandez will be arrested for obstruction of justice. But the mood since then has definitely turned ominous.

As we were told earlier today by a source with knowledge of the situation, “Assume the worst.” Which would push the needle away from obstruction of justice and toward something closer to murder.

As Tom Curran of CSN New England said on Wednesday’s PFT Live, “Keep it simple.” Whose house has been searched multiple times by police? Hernandez’s. Whose rental car initially was found, reportedly, in the vicinity of the body? Hernandez’s.

Who by all appearances has been the focal point of the investigation? Hernandez.

Don’t be surprised if, come 2:00 p.m. ET or at some point thereafter, Hernandez is charged with something worse than obstruction of justice.
