Arraignment set for man sought in Hernandez case

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A man charged as an accessory in the murder case involving former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.

Ernest Wallace, of Miramar, Fla., was turned over on Friday to Massachusetts officials. Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter said Saturday that Wallace will be arraigned at 2 p.m. in Attleboro District Court on a charge of accessory to murder after the fact.

Semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd was found slain on June 17. The 27-year-old’s relatives say he was dating the sister of the former Patriots tight end’s fiancee and that the two men were friends.

Prosecutors say Hernandez, Wallace and another man drove with Lloyd to an industrial park where Lloyd was fatally shot.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder.
