Judge: Jurors in Aaron Hernandez case can hear about tattoos
Judge Jeffrey Locke on Tuesday denied a defense request to exclude his tattoos as evidence.
Prosecutors say Hernandez got two tattoos added in 2013. One shows a six-shot revolver with five bullets in the cylinder and one empty chamber. The other shows a semi-automatic pistol and a wisp of smoke coming from a spent shell casing.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the 2012 killings of two men he encountered in a Boston nightclub. His trial is scheduled to begin next month.
He is already serving a life sentence in the 2013 killing of a semi-professional football player.
