BOSTON, MA - Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been charged in the shooting deaths of two men after what prosecutors say was a chance encounter inside a Boston nightclub in 2012, but his lawyers say he looks forward to proving his innocence.

The 24-year-old Hernandez is accused of killing Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. A third man was wounded in the attack. Prosecutors say they were gunned down by Hernandez as their vehicle was stopped at a red light after they left the nightclub.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the killing last year of Odin Lloyd, 27, a semi-pro football player whose body was found near Hernandez's home. He is expected to be arraigned on the new charges in Suffolk Superior Court next week.
