Cell records at Hernandez trial show movement day of killing
FALL RIVER, Mass. — The murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has resumed after a snow delay with more testimony about cellphone records.
A prosecutor is going through cellphone records to show jurors the movements of Hernandez and a co-defendant around the time of the killing.
Prosecutor Patrick Bomberg on Monday discussed Ernest Wallace’s records with two Sprint employees.
Hernandez is charged in the June 17, 2013, killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.
Much of Monday’s testimony centered on the location of Wallace’s phone from June 16 to June 18.
Records showed Wallace’s phone moving from Connecticut to Massachusetts, then calling Lloyd five times as it neared Lloyd’s home in Boston. The final call between them pinged at a cell tower a few blocks from Lloyd’s home June 17.
Prosecutors have said Hernandez was driving.
Yet another snowstorm dropped several inches on the region, prompting the court to delay Monday’s start for a little over an hour.
There already have been 5 1/2 snow days since jury selection began in the case Jan. 9.
