Cousin Granted Bail in Hernandez Case

NBCConnecticut.com

Tanya Singleton will be in court today.

A cousin of Aaron Hernandez has been granted bail with conditions as she faces charges in connection with the murder case against the former New England Patriots player.

On Thursday, a judge set $15,000 cash bail for Tanya Singleton. She's been held without bail after pleading not guilty to criminal contempt and conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact.

Prosecutors said she helped Hernandez's "right-hand man" Ernest Wallace travel to Florida after the June killing of Odin Lloyd and refused to testify before the grand jury in the case despite immunity.

On Thursday, prosecutors also said Singleton talked with Hernandez's friend Carlos Ortiz about fleeing to Puerto Rico. Wallace and Ortiz have pleaded not guilty to accessory to murder after the fact.   

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in Lloyd's death.
