WATCH Aaron Hernandez Dismantles Cell Phone in Surveillance Video

As testimony resumed today in the murder trial of Aaron Hernandez, prosecutors played a police surveillance video of the former NFL star allegedly dismantling his phone one day after Odin Lloyd's death.

Just before playing the video, Detective Michael Elliot of the North Attleboro Police Department testified that a few hours after Hernandez left the police station, he saw the former New England Patriots player from the closed-circuit police camera sitting in his lawyer's car, breaking down his cell phone.

Hernandez, 25, is accused of orchestrating Lloyd's murder in June 2013.

The surveillance video shows Hernandez in the car's passenger seat. As he talks on one phone that Elliot claims he was given, he appears to be taking apart another phone on his lap.

Prosecutors claim Hernandez used the phone to call co-defendant Ernest Wallace.

Elliot said Hernandez then put the phone "back together and powered it up" -- something he was able to see when he zoomed the surveillance camera in on the car.

The defense had fought to keep the surveillance video from being brought into evidence, but Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh ruled this past Friday that Hernandez had no expectation of privacy while inside a parked car in a public lot.

Earlier today, Mark Archambault, who had installed the home theater system in Hernandez's home, was also on the stand. He said he returned to the athlete's house in May 2013 to install six digital cameras and set up a security system.

Archambault said Hernandez asked how to shut off the camera in the basement because he didn't want his fiancé to see him hanging out with his friends.

The jury saw photos today including bullets that were found in Hernandez's home. Prosecutors also introduced a shell casing found in the dumpster behind the Enterprise Rental Car where Hernandez had rented the car driven the night of the Lloyd's death.

North Attleboro police officer John Grim also took the stand for cross-examination today. But Defense attorney James Sultan tried to point out discrepancies in the 150-page police report as he showed Grim's hand-drawn diagram of the crime scene, with a stick figure representing Lloyd's body.

On re-direct, prosecutor William McCauley used the photo of Lloyd's body and asked Grim to clarify details -- an effort to raise questions in the jury's minds about the thoroughness of the police investigation.

According to Assistant District Attorney Patrick Bomberg, on June 17, 2013, Hernandez told Lloyd "he was going to come out to his house."

Hernandez was driving when he and two other men picked up Lloyd from his home and brought him to the industrial park, near the Patriots' home at Gillette Stadium, according to prosecutors.
