FALL RIVER, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Prosecutors released their response to a request from Aaron Hernandez's lawyers to suppress evidence surrounding murder and firearm charges against the former Patriot in the Odin Lloyd case.
The defense wants to suppress evidence gathered during a June 18, 2013 search. The prosecution saying in this motion, several things, that factors such as the discovery of Lloyd's body in proximity to Hernandez's home, the fact that Lloyd knew no one else in that area, text messages and surveillance video all play into the application for the search warrant.
This follows a filing Wednesday night from the defense arguing prosecutors failed to establish probable cause that Hernandez either murdered Lloyd himself or helped alleged suspects Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace carry out the crime.
The judge will hear arguments on that motion to dismiss on Monday.
Tuesday marks one year since Odin Lloyd was murdered.
