Defense attorneys for former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez asked a Fall River judge Monday to suppress evidence in connection to the murder of Odin Lloyd, who was killed last summer.
Judge Susan Garsh did not rule on the motion, which asked that recording devices taken from Hernandez’s home – iPads, a hard drive, cell phones and a video recorder – not be allowed at the upcoming murder trial.
The devices may have taken photos that prosecutors want to use against the 24-year-old murder suspect.
Hernandez is accused of shooting Lloyd to death in an industrial park near Hernandez's Attleboro home in June 2013. Hernandez is due to stand trial this winter; he has pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail.
Garsh took today's request under advisement, and agreed to keep a change of venue hearing set for Oct. 30.
