This story just gets uglier and it seems everybody connected to Aaron Hernandez may need to get a lawyer, starting with his fiancee Shyanna Jenkins. Jenkins was indicted on a single count of perjury in relation to the investigation of the death of Hernandez’ friend Odin Lloyd on June 17th.
A Massachusetts prosecutor said that a grand jury indicted Shayanna Jenkins on a single count in relation to the investigation. According to USA Today she was one of three indicted today including:
Carlos Ortiz, an associate, who now faces a charge of being an accessory after fact, and Hernandez’s cousin, Tanya Singleton, who was indicted for conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact….
Lloyd was found shot to death in an industrial park in North Attleborough, Mass., near Hernandez’s home, where Jenkins also lives. Her sister had been dating Lloyd.
Prosecutors believe Jenkins, who has a child with Hernandez, lied from the beginning saying she didn’t know who Hernandez was with the night of the murder, but surveillance video shows her greeting Ortiz and, another man Ernest Wallace who police consider Hernandez’ “right hand man”. Police, say when she was initially being questioned by police, she received a call from Hernandez who told her to stop talking–which she did. They also believe she got rid of the murder weapon.
Now facing perjury, it will be interesting to see how this story takes yet another turn, and more and more of the people in Hernandez’ circle find themselves drawn into this mess an deeper into trouble.
