Aaron Hernandez, former NFL tight end, will be going to trial for the murder of Odin Lloyd, who was shot and killed June 17 2013 a mile from Hernandez’ home.
The police have arrested three people, including Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz of Connecticut, Hernandez’ home state.
37-year-old Tanya Cummings-Singleton was subpoenaed to testify against her cousin Hernandez but refused. She is now being held in custody and has been since August 1st according to ESPN.
Authorities believe Cummings-Singleton purchased a bus ticket for Ernest Wallace, who is charged with being an accessory after the fact. Carlos Ortiz, also being held in connection with the case, reportedly told police that he discussed the murder of Lloyd with Cummings-Singleton.
Cummings-Singleton lives at the Bristol, Conn., home owned by Hernandez’s uncle. Police have searched the home multiple times since Wallace and Ortiz were arrested in the case. Two weeks ago, authorities ordered Cummings-Singleton’s phone and credit cards seized.
Investigators also were attempting to interview Cummings-Singleton’s husband, Thaddeus Singleton, before he was killed in a late June car crash in Farmington, Conn.
Everyone seems to be quiet except for third suspect Ortiz who has been talking to the cops about where evidence might be found and the timeline of that night.
