Aaron Hernandez’s Fiancee Indicted on Perjury Charge

A grand jury has indicted Aaron Hernandez's fiance with a count of perjury in connection to the murder of Odin Lloyd.

A grand jury has indicted former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez’s fiance on a perjury charge in connection with the June murder of Odin Lloyd. According to Bristol County District Attorney Samuel Sutter, a grand jury indicted Shayanna Jenkins on a single count in relation to the Lloyd murder investigation.

It is unclear what led to the charge but according to court documents released last month, Jenkins had become an interest to investigators because they believed she knew the location of the gun used to kill Lloyd. Authorities searched a storage unit rented under her name and also have surveillance video of what they believe is her getting rid of evidence related to the case, specifically a .22-caliber gun they later discovered in the woods. Police also have text messages Hernandez sent mentioning to Jenkins about a box in the basement an hour before she is seen leaving with a heavy object.

This brings the number of people charged in connection to the death of Lloyd to five, including Hernandez himself who is accused of murder, Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace, both accused to being accessories, and Hernandez’s cousin Tanya Singleton, who refused to testify against him and had been indicted with conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact.

All have plead not guilty to their charges. However, Ortiz, who had been a key witness for the prosecution, recently changed his story about his whereabouts on the night of the murder. Ortiz had been adamant that three men, Hernandez, Wallace and Lloyd had gotten out of the car the night of the murder. Now he is saying only Hernandez and Lloyd exited the vehicle, leading many to question his credibility.

Hernandez has been behind bars since June facing a first-degree murder charge.
