NFL tight end charged with murder

Posted: Updated:

Police charged former New England Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez with murder.

More than a week ago police started investigating the star football player for his connection with Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player whose body was found in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's house.

Police arrested Hernandez early Wednesday morning, and shortly thereafter the Patriots cut him from the team.

Lloyd's family says he and Hernandez were friends and that Lloyd's girlfriend and Hernandez's fiancee are sisters.
