    Ernest Wallace, who police say is connected to the killing of Odin Lloyd, waived his right to an extradition hearing in South Florida in a Broward court appearance Monday afternoon.

    A man facing an accessory after the fact to murder charge in the case involving former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is in court today.

    Ernest Wallace, of Miramar, Florida, is being held in lieu of bond and pleaded not guilty in Attleboro, Mass., court.

    He has been charged with accessory in the murder case of Odin Lloyd, who was found slain on June 17 at an industrial park in North Attleboro not far from Hernandez's home.

    Prosecutors say Wallace and another man, Carlos Ortiz, were with Hernandez when they drove with Lloyd to the industrial park. They have not said who shot him. 

    Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated the killing because he was upset at Lloyd for talking to certain people at a nightclub a few days earlier.

    Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.
