Transcript for Aaron Hernandez Expected to Be Indicted for Murder
latest in the case of former new england patriots tight end aaron hernandez. He will be in court for the second time since he was arrested in june for allegedly killing a friend. And abc's linsey davis on new evidence that could signal even more problems. Reporter: Good morning to you, josh. Abc news has learned that former new england patriots tight end is expected to be formally indicted later today in the june killing of 27-year-old semipro football player odin lloyd. This, just as investigators look into a possible connection between the 23-year-old and another shooting. The hearing set for later today was initially scheduled as a probable cause hearing, where prosecutors would have had to explain to hernandez in open court, key pieces of their case against him, or risk the judge releasing him on bail. But if hernandez is indicted, prosecutors can aggressively argue he should stay in jail, despite defense objections. It's hard to prepare for a trial with your client in custody. The biggest legal)1@& challenge, is those circumstantial, there is a lot of evidence. Reporter: Prosecutors say surveillance video captures lloyd getting into a car with three men before his death. THE FOOTAGE FROMGvH HERNANDEZ'S Home shows the football star and two other men without lloyd. In screen grabs released by prosecutors, hernandez appears to be carrying a gun into the house. Meantime, while investigators search for the gun used to kill lloyd, massachusetts state police say they recovered a different gun. And are investigating whether it was used in a 2012 drive-by shooting in boston that left two people ç sources say that case also appears to be connected to hernandez. Experts say, if lloyd had information about that boston shooting last year, which some reports suggest he did, prosecutors would want to know. Two of hernandez's associates also face charges in this case. No word just yet if additional charges will be filed against a female cousin of hernandez and his fiancee, who investigators say both made overt attempts to hinder this investigation. Thank you for that, linsey.
