Update, 2:28 p.m. The prosecution successfully argued for a continuance in the case today while they build a case to a grand jury against Aaron Hernandez. Patriots coach Bill Belichick spoke for the first time since the tight ends's arrest and said he is "personally disappointed and hurt" by Hernandez's actions. His next court appearance will be August 22.
Original: Prosecutors are trying to convince a grand jury to charge former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez with the unsolved shooting deaths of two men that took place outside of a Boston nightclub in 2012, according to the Boston Globe.
According to reports from the Globe and the local Fox affiliate last month, Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado were killed on July 16, 2012 after a fight broke out at the Cure nightclub in Boston's theater district between two groups of people. In one corner was Abreu and Furtado, and in the other was Hernandez and his crew. Abreu and Furtado, two old friends who grew up together in Cape Verde, left the club in a BMW with three others. A few blocks away, an SUV with Rhode Island plates pulled up and opened fire on the BMW and killed Abreu and Furtado. It should also be noted that, if proved true, Hernandez will have played a full season of football (barring injuries and such) after killing two people.
