Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots tight end, will have deliberations begin on Friday for a second murder trial. This one; however, is a double-murder case.

He was previously convicted of the murder of former semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. In this case, the prosecution alleges that he gunned down Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

They allege that Hernandez murdered them because of a spilled drink. While the prosecution says it was Hernandez who did the deed, the defense believes it was Alexander Bradley.

Bradley, who is a former friend of Hernandez, is a key witness for the prosecution. The defense is saying it was Bradley because of a failed drug deal that went bad.

Hernandez, who is already serving a life sentence following the Lloyd trial, is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. With this doubt that the defense is trying to put in the jurors’ minds, it could change the entire case.

However, just because he committed one murder, does not mean he necessarily committed two more. The prosecution will have to prove that without a doubt.

If Hernandez is found guilty in this murder case as well, it would likely add more time to his sentence. It is not clear if the charges would run concurrent, which means he would serve time for both charges at the same time if he is also convicted of murdering de Abreu and Furtado.
