BOSTON (AP) - Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez is due in court for a pretrial hearing in the 2012 drive-by killings of two men outside a Boston nightclub in 2012.
Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley's office says Thursday afternoon's hearing is ''purely administrative in nature'' as both sides prepare for a May 28, 2015 trial.
Prosecutors say Hernandez shot Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after one of them apparently spilled a drink on him in the nightclub. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.
He also is charged in the murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player whose bullet-ridden body was found in an industrial park near Hernandez's North Attleborough home.
Hernandez also pleaded not guilty in Lloyd's murder. His trial in that case is scheduled for October.
