Aaron Hernandez indicted on murder charge

ATTLEBORO — A Bristol County grand jury indicted former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez Thursday on weapons and first-degree murder charges, more than two months after the former football star allegedly orchestrated the slaying of a Dorchester man in a secluded industrial park near his home.

The indictment moves the case to Superior Court, where Hernandez will face the accusation that he killed 27-year-old Odin Lloyd in the early morning of June 17. Lloyd’s body was discovered later that day, shot several times in the chest and torso.
