Bears player calls Hernandez 'my guy' at double-murder trial

Aaron Hernandez's brother is scheduled to testify Tuesday in the former New England Patriots player's murder trial.

"We came in together, so our whole class was pretty much tight", he said.

Another Hernandez associate, Jer'elle Pierre, testified next. Hernandez smiled when Thompson referred to him as "my guy". Despite the fact that Hernandez has already been found guilty of one murder and is potentially going to be convicted on another two, Thompson appears to be still quite friendly with Hernandez. Prosecutors say Hernandez shot Bradley because, as a witness to the Boston shooting, he knew too much.

The prosecution also called a club promoter who buttressed the Commonwealth's claim that Bradley often had to calm Hernandez down at clubs when he would become upset over somewhat trivial things.

Hernandez and Bradley argued about the bill and later about returning to the club to retrieve Bradley's phone, before Hernandez shot Bradley inside their vehicle in a warehouse area, Bradley testified last week.

A club promoter's testimony will be allowed in court on Monday in the double murder trial of Aaron Hernandez, but a judge pushed the testimony of the former NFL's older brother to Tuesday. In one case, he said Hernandez called him a "fed" and a "snitch".


The prosecution and Judge Locke became frustrated with Crawford's testimony.

Prosecutor Mark Lee noted that Crawford could recall various details of the night during his grand jury testimony.

He has also pleaded not guilty to shooting Bradley in Florida on the morning of February 13, 2013, in a failed effort to silence him about the Boston killings.

During that time, they were asked to read through some-400 text messages between Hernandez and Bradley, the prosecution's star witness.

Defense lawyers say Bradley killed the men over a drug deal. Hernandez is now serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.
