Aaron Hernandez faces murder charges in 2012 killings

Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez was charged Thursday with fatally shooting two Cape Verdean immigrants in July 2012, one week before the star tight end reported to training camp.

Daniel Abreu, 28, and Safiro Furtado, 29, friends who worked together as housekeepers, had a “chance encounter” with Hernandez at Cure, a Theatre District nightclub, that ended with Hernandez shooting the two men to death after they left the club and were waiting at a traffic light on Shawmut Avenue, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said Thursday.
