• Cousin granted bail in Hernandez case


    FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) - A cousin of Aaron Hernandez has been granted bail with conditions as she faces charges in connection with the murder case against the former New England Patriots player.

    On Thursday, a judge set $15,000 cash bail for Tanya Singleton. She's been held without bail after pleading not guilty to criminal contempt and conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact.

    Singleton's attorney told FOX 25 she would be released after she gets fitted for a GPS bracelet. Her attorney also said she must reside in Bristol County and appear at a probation office in court twice a week.

    Prosecutors say she helped Hernandez's "right-hand man" Ernest Wallace travel to Florida after the June killing of Odin Lloyd and refused to testify before the grand jury in the case despite immunity.

    On Thursday, prosecutors also said Singleton talked with Hernandez's friend Carlos Ortiz about fleeing to Puerto Rico. They said Singleton also paid for a cell phone for Wallace.

    Wallace and Ortiz have pleaded not guilty to accessory to murder after the fact. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in Lloyd's death.
