FALL RIVER, Mass. - Aaron Hernandez has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd. He has been sentenced to life without parole.
Murder 1: GUILTY
The jury believes the shooting of Odin Lloyd was premeditated or planned and was not a spontaneous crime of passion and/or there was extreme atrocity or cruelty indicating that Hernandez had no regard for Lloyd and possibly wanted him to suffer.
1. The jury believes Hernandez unlawfully carried a firearm. GUILTY
2. The jury believes Hernandez unlawfully possessed ammunition. GUILT
The jury consists of seven women and five men who have been deliberating the case since last week.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the killing of Odin Lloyd in June 2013. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.
Hernandez's lawyer acknowledged his client was there when Lloyd was shot, but pinned it on two of Hernandez's friends.
Prosecutors said Hernandez killed Lloyd and thought he could get away with it because no one would believe it was him.
