Aaron Hernandez Found Not Guilty in Double Murder Case

According to TMZ, Aaron Hernandez has just been found NOT GUILTY of murdering two people in a 2012 drive-by shooting. The jury spent more than 35 hours over 6 days deliberating the case. 

Prosecutors claimed 27-year-old Hernandez killed Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado on July 16, 2012 because one of them spilled a drink on him in a Boston club earlier that night. 

The families of both Abreu and Furtado were in the courtroom when the verdict was read. The ex-New England Patriots player was previously convicted of 1st degree murder and sentenced to life in prison in 2015 for killing semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

The acquittal comes almost exactly 2 years after Hernandez was convicted of murdering Lloyd. That verdict was reached on April 15th, 2015.
