Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, who is facing murder charges, was treated briefly at St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford over the weekend, hospital spokesman Peter Cohenno said Sunday. Cohenno said Hernandez has since been released but declined to discuss the reason for Hernandez’s hospitalization. Officials with the Bristol Sheriff’s Department, which oversees the Bristol County House of Corrections where Hernandez is being held without bail, could not be reached for comment. Hernandez has been charged in the June 2013 slaying of Odin Lloyd and the July 2012 shootings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.
