ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) -- Police have charged New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez with murder and weapons counts in connection with the slaying of a semi-pro football player whose body was found in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's home.
The charges were revealed Wednesday in Attleboro District Court after Hernandez was arrested at his sprawling North Attleborough home. Less than two hours after his arrest, the Patriots cut Hernandez from the team.
A judge ordered Hernandez held without bail pending further proceedings. Hernandez's attorney, Michael Fee, calls it a weak, circumstantial case.
Authorities say Odin Lloyd was shot multiple times in the back and chest. They say Hernandez was upset with Lloyd after the two had a dispute at a nightclub a few days before.
It's not clear who investigators believe fired the shots.
