Aaron Hernandez’s Murder Conviction Reinstated?

Aaron Hernandez

Aaron Hernandez’s first degree murder conviction has been reinstated by Massachusetts’ highest court, according to court documents.

The former Patriots tight end’s conviction in the murder of Odin Lloyd had been vacated because he committed suicide while his appeal was still pending.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court announced the decision on Wednesday.

The former New England Patriots tight end hanged himself in his prison cell last month while serving a life sentence on a first-degree murder conviction in the death of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd. He died five days after being acquitted in a separate double slaying in 2012.

Hernandez’s appellate lawyers originally said his conviction in the Lloyd case was not considered final because the automatic appeal he was entitled to had not been heard at the time of his death.

Hernandez, who grew up in Bristol, and played football at the University of Florida, was considered an up-and-coming star during his three seasons with the Patriots. He was cut from the team hours after his arrest in the killing of Lloyd.
