ATTLEBORO — In a brief hearing where no new information about the murder of Odin L. Lloyd was made public, Ernest Wallace today pleaded not guilty to being an accessory after the fact to murder and was ordered held without bail.
During the highly anticipated arraignment, Bristol County prosecutors asked that paperwork involving Wallace be impounded, a request prosecutors have also made for court papers detailing former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez’s alleged role in the killing of Lloyd.
Judge Robert Harbour ordered Wallace held without bail and also ordered that documents relating to Wallace be impounded.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder and firearms charges and is currently being held without bail at the Bristol County Jail. Lloyd, 27, was an acquaintance of Hernandez, who authorities allege “orchestrated’’ the murder of the Dorchester man on June 17 in North Attleborough.
Bristol District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter, in comments to reporters after the Wallace hearing, cautioned against anyone concluding that investigators believe Hernandez was the sole shooter during Lloyd’s murder.
