Aaron Hernandez murder trial to start in January

Judge requests 1,000 potential jurors to query

The first-degree murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez in the shooting death of Odin L. Lloyd in 2013 will now begin in early 2015, with jury selection set to start Jan. 9, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Flanked by his attorneys, Hernandez appeared in Bristol Superior Court in Fall River Tuesday where Superior Court Judge E. Susan Garsh set the date for jury selection. Before that date, however, the judge has to decide a number of issues, including a possible defense request for a change of venue.
