Defense for Ex-Patriots Star Hernandez Wants Some Evidence Suppressed

The judge presiding over the Aaron Hernandez slaying case will consider a motion by the defense to exclude evidence from some electronic devices seized from the former New England Patriots star's home.

Hernandez, a Bristol, Connecticut native, is charged with killing Odin Lloyd of Boston, whose body was found in an industrial park near. Hernandez's home in North Attleboro, Mass. in June 2013. Lloyd was dating Hernandez's fiancee's sister. He has pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail.

Hernandez's lawyers said some evidence, specifically a Blackberry cellphone, is not admissible because it was not part of the original search warrant.

Judge E. Susan Garsh spent most of the short hearing Monday trying to determine exactly which of three cellphones seized the defense was referring to.

Hernandez, a Bristol. Connecticut native, is also charged with killing two men in Boston in 2012.

His fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, is also expected in court Monday to ask that perjury charges be dismissed.
