The Bristol County District Attorney said that Shayanna Jenkins helped to build the case and bring charges against Aaron in connection with the death of his friend, Odin Lloyd, according to a new report.
Aaron Hernandez’s girlfriend, and possible fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins reportedly helped the DA bring charges against the former New England Patriots tight end.
Aaron Hernandez’s Girlfriend Helped Prosecution? — The DA Says Yes, She Did
Shayanna, 24, “assisted prosecutors in preparing their case today [June 26],” the DA said, according to LA Late.
Shayanna’s sister, Shanea Jenkins, was allegedly dating Aaron’s friend Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old former semi-pro football player, before he was murdered in North Attleborough, Massachusetts on June 17. Shayanna’s reportedly been instrumental in helping put pieces together in this case.
The prosecutors reportedly told the court that they went to speak to Aaron’s girlfriend after Odin’s death. They told the court that Shayanna was initially very cooperative. But after what they believed to be Aaron’s intervention, she became less cooperative, LA Late reports.
Aaron Hernandez Charged With Murder
The prosecution gathered quite a bit of evidence before charging Aaron, 23, with murder on June 26 in connection with the death of Odin Lloyd. Aaron was also charged with 1 count of carrying a gun without a license, 2 counts of possession of a large firearm, and 2 counts of firearm possession.
Aaron’s girlfriend, Shayanna, was present in court, when Aaron was charged. Before he was taken away into custody, Aaron nodded in her direction and appeared to blow her a kiss.
The couple has one 8-month-old daughter together. (See pics of the NFL player.)
