On Wednesday June 26th, 2013 NFL Pro-Bowl tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged with First Degree Murder, Carrying a Firearm without a License, Two Counts of Possession of a Large Capacity Firearm, and Two Counts of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.

Hernandez was cut by the New England Patriots within hours of his arrest on Wednesday. This case stems from what the prosecution called the execution style shootinging of 27 year old Odin Lloyd, a supposed friend of Hernandez. Prosecutors allege that Hernandez was upset from an incident at a nightclub.
