Hernandez associate seeking more detail on charge
An attorney for a so-called ”right-hand man” of former New
England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez wants more detail from
Massachusetts prosecutors about the accessory to murder charge he
Ernest Wallace’s lawyers filed the request Monday in Fall River
Superior Court ahead of a brief hearing.
Wallace has pleaded not guilty to accessory to murder after the
fact and is being held on $500,000 cash bail. Hernandez has pleaded
not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old
semi-professional football player.
Prosecutors say Wallace and associate Carlos Ortiz were with
Hernandez and Lloyd on the June night Lloyd was killed. They say
Wallace fled to Florida after the killing.
The defense wants more specifics on how Wallace’s alleged
actions helped Hernandez.
The prosecution’s response is due Jan 9.
