BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez's defense team says there is not enough evidence, but a judge says there is.
Lawyers for Hernandez lost their motion for the dismissal of the charges against him in the death of Odin Lloyd. Besides citing a lack of evidence, they also claimed prosecutors flooded a grand jury with irrelevant and damaging information.
The Bristol County judge concluded there was enough evidence to support the charges, and prosecutors acted properly in their grand jury presentations. Hernandez is scheduled to go on trial for Lloyd's murder in January.
He is also being charged in Suffolk County for a 2012 double murder in Boston. Hernandez has plead not guilty in both cases.
