Shayanna Jenkins, Aaron Hernandez’s Fiancé, Indicted By Grand Jury
Aaron Hernandez’s fiancé Shayanna Jenkins was indicted on a perjury charge by the grand jury on Friday in connection with the murder of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.
Jenkins has long been of interest to the prosecution in regard to what she may know about the gun that was used to execute Lloyd in the Attleboro, Mass., industrial park. As of yet, the murder weapon has yet to be recovered. Court documents allege that Hernandez had told Jenkins via phone calls and a text message to dispose of the weapons stored at their house, reported the New York Daily News.
Feed from Hernandez’s home surveillance system could further link Jenkins to the murder weapon. Footage shows Jenkins carrying a trash bag up from the house’s basement that appeared to hold a box of some sort, which could have ostensibly contained a gun. She loaded the bag into the trunk of the vehicle and took off, returning home about a half hour later without the bag.
Jenkins’ sister, Shaneah, had been dating Lloyd at the time of his shooting death. During the court proceedings, she has aligned herself with Lloyd’s surviving family, while Jenkins has sat beside Hernandez’s mother.
Hernandez’s cousin Tanya Singleton and childhood friend Carlos Ortiz were indicted by the grand jury as well – on conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact and accessory murder after the fact charges, respectively, reported CBS News.
Hernandez will next appear in court on Oct. 9.
