State Troopers Take Stand in Murder Trial of Aaron Hernandez

Posted:

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) - Three Massachusetts state troopers have testified in the murder trial of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez about evidence they recovered.

Hernandez is charged in the June 2013 death of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.

Trooper Zachary Johnson testified Thursday about going to Lloyd's home the evening his body was found and alerting his family that he was dead. He also spoke about a safe police found in the closet of Hernandez's master bedroom. Inside, he said, was a digital scale and a dish with what he said was marijuana residue.

Another trooper spoke at length about how he recovered video surveillance from Hernandez's home.

Hernandez's lawyers have tried to poke holes in the state's case by going after how police handled evidence.
