Prosecution rests in trial of ex-NFL player Aaron Hernandez
FALL RIVER, Mass. - The prosecution has rested its case in the murder trial of former New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee. Lloyd was killed at an industrial park less than a mile from Hernandez's home.
Before resting their case Thursday, prosecutors called more than 100 witnesses and submitted hundreds of pieces of evidence. Those included surveillance videos from inside Hernandez's home that showed him holding what appeared to be a gun less than 10 minutes after Lloyd's killing. A joint found near Lloyd's body had DNA from both men on it.
The trial has lasted more than two months.
Hernandez's lawyer has said he expects to rest Monday.
