Boston - Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez has been indicted on murder charges in the killing of two Boston men in 2012.
Hernandez is accused of murdering Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado following his arrest in the murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player whose body was found near Hernandez's North Attleborough home in June.
Hernandez pleaded not guilty to charges in Lloyd's murder and is being held without bail in the Bristol County Jail.
Abreu and Furtado were shot on July 16, 2012 while stopped at a stoplight in Boston. An SUV with Rhode Island licenses plates pulled up alongside them and opened fire.
According to a search warrant issued earlier this year, camera recordings showed Hernandez and another man, Alexander Bradley, going into the Boston nightclub Cure, shortly after the victims went into the club. Surveillance also showed Hernandez driving a Toyota 4Runner out of a parking garage with Bradley as the passenger.
The video shows the victims leaving the club and Hernandez's SUV passing them twice as they walked to their car from the nightclub.
Aquilino Freire, a third man in the car with the victims who survived, told police that an SUV pulled up to them while they were stopped at a stoplight and he saw someone in the backseat laughing and then several gunshots were fired from the rear passenger seat into the car. Freire also told police that two other people in the car ran away.
Freire recognized Hernandez's face after he was arrested last summer for the Lloyd murder.
A witness near the scene told police that he saw an SUV run a red light, pull up to the victims car and he heard six gunshots. The witness described the SUV driver as a light-skinned Hispanic man with short dark hair.
According to relatives of Abreu and Furtado, the two victims did not know Hernandez. Both worked for a cleaning company and neither had criminal records.
Relatives of Abreu and Furtado have filed wrongful death lawsuits against Hernandez and are demanding he pays each family $6 million in damages. Lloyd's relatives have also filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Hernandez.
