Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was found guilty of first-degree murder Wednesday in the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, and faces a sentence of life in prison without parole.
After seven days of deliberation, the jury returned a guilty verdict shortly before 10:30 a.m. ET. As the verdict was read by the foreperson, Hernandez's girlfriend and mother and Lloyd's mother began sobbing. Hernandez sat down as his lawyers stood around him.
Hernandez was found guilty on all charges, including weapons charges. The jury ruled that he was guilty for reason of "extreme atrocity."
Charges and verdicts for Hernandez:
• First-degree murder in shooting of Odin Lloyd: Guilty (carries mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole)
• Additional firearms and ammunition charges: Guilty
Trial details (via Associated Press):
• Lloyd was shot six times in the middle of the night on June 17, 2013, in a deserted industrial park near Hernandez's home in North Attleborough.
• Hernandez's attorney was seeking to prove the shooting was carried out by two of Hernandez's friends, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, saying his client was a "23-year-old kid" who witnessed a shocking crime and didn't know what to do. Wallace and Ortiz will stand trial later.
• The defense argued investigators fixated on Hernandez because of his celebrity and conducted a shoddy investigation in their zeal to confirm their suspicions.
• Prosecutors suggested Lloyd may have been killed because he knew too much about Hernandez's alleged involvement in a deadly 2012 drive-by shooting in Boston. That information was withheld from the jury that because the judge said it was speculation.
Ahead for Hernandez (via AP):
• In addition to time he'll serve for the Odin Lloyd murder, Hernandez's legal troubles do not end with this this verdict. He is awaiting trial on murder charges in the drive-by shooting. He is accused of gunning down two men over a spilled drink at a nightclub.
