The Florida man arrested as part of the investigation into former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez’s alleged role in the slaying of Odin Lloyd will be arraigned in Attleboro District Court on Monday afternoon, prosecutors said Saturday.
Ernest Wallace, 41, of Miramar, Fla., will be facing a charge of accessory to murder.
Wallace is one of three men prosecutors say were in the car with Lloyd, 27, of Dorchester, hours before he was shot and killed in the early morning of June 17. Lloyd’s body was discovered in a North Attleboro industrial park less than a mile from Hernandez’s house.
On June 26, police arrested Hernandez, who has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bail. That same day, they arrested Carlos Ortiz, 27, of Bristol, Conn., and charged him with possession of a firearm without a license.
Days after those arrests, Massachusetts police released Wallace’s name and photo in a public appeal for help locating him and a silver Chrysler 300 he was believed to have been driving.
