Judge orders Aaron Hernandez to be held without bail
After hearing in detail the evidence discovered during the investigation of the murder of Odin Lloyd, a judge has ordered that Aaron Hernandez be held without bail pending further proceedings.
The decision came swiftly, despite arguments by attorney Michael Fee that the case is “weak” and “circumstantial.”
The ruling caps a dizzying day of developments, starting with the arrest of Hernandez, his release by the Patriots, and the arraignment on murder charges.
The hearing concluded with the judge essentially imposing a gag order, which as a practical matter will be very difficult to enforce.
