ATTLEBORO, Mass. -- Aaron Hernandez has been charged with murdering his friend after the two had a dispute during a trip to a nightclub.
Hernandez was arrested Wednesday and charged with the first-degree murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player whose body was found in an industrial park about a mile from the former New England Patriots tight end's home.
Hernandez, who was released by the Patriots less than two hours after his arrest, pleaded not guilty and has been ordered to be held without bail. Hernandez also faces five gun-related charges, which were revealed Wednesday afternoon in Attleboro District Court.
