FORMER PATRIOTS STAR CHARGED WITH MURDER

NEW YORK: Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder on Wednesday following the shooting death of a man whose bloodied body was found dumped less than a mile from his home. After days of speculation linking the 23-year-old tight end to the killing of Odin Lloyd on June 17, police officers swooped on Hernandez at his $1.7 million luxury mansion early Wednesday before leading him away in handcuffs. The multi-millionaire sports star was later arraigned at Attleborough District Court on charges of murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, and possession of a large capacity firearm, Massachusetts State Police said.
