Aaron Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough and his Hummer sport utility vehicle can be sold as part of a civil lawsuit filed against the convicted killer and former New England Patriots player.
In an order issued Thursday, Bristol Superior Court Judge Richard T. Moses authorized the sale of the single-family home at 22 Ronald C. Meyer Drive, where he was living in July 2013 when he murdered Odin L. Lloyd of Dorchester in a nearby industrial park.
Key evidence in his Bristol County Superior Court murder trial came from a video security system that Hernandez and his girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins, had installed in the home. A recording showed him and two friends returning to the house just minutes after Lloyd’s death.
Lloyd’s mother, Ursula Ward, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Bristol Superior Court against Hernandez, a former millionaire professional athlete who is serving a life sentence without parole at the maximum security Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Lancaster.
Hernandez brought the house in 2013 and it is currently assessed at $1.3 million by the town of North Attleborough, records show.
The proceeds from the sale of the house and the SUV are to be put into a bank account and kept there until a later court order, the judge ruled.
Hernandez is expected to be tried in Suffolk Superior Court soon for the 2012 shootings of two men in the South End. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges.
