ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) - A second man has been taken into custody in connection with the murder charge against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in the shooting death of one of his friends. Meanwhile, relatives of the victim are preparing for his funeral.
Two men who authorities say were in a car with Hernandez before one of the NFL star's friends was shot to death are in custody. On Friday, one was charged with illegally carrying a gun and the other accused of being an accessory after murder.
Hernandez was charged with murder this week. Prosecutors haven't said who fired the shots that killed his friend Odin Lloyd, a Boston semi-pro football player.
Lloyd's relatives were preparing for his funeral in Boston on Saturday. A relative said the service will be at Church of the Holy Spirit in the city's Mattapan section.
