Why would you waste time and money for a jury trial of someone that's already received life on another murder trial? Seems pointless.

BOSTON -- Ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez, already serving life sentence for a 2013 murder, was acquitted by a jury in a 2012 double slaying.

The former tight end for the New England Patriots was acquitted of all but one charge Friday over the killings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

Jurors deliberated the first-degree murder charges against Hernandez for more than 40 hours over six days.

Hernandez was accused of fatally shooting de Abreu and Furtado in 2012. Prosecutors said Hernandez opened fire on their car because he felt disrespected when one of the men bumped into him and spilled his drink at a Boston nightclub.

The defense team pointed the finger at Alexander Bradley, a close friend of Hernandez who was with him the night of the shootings.

Hernandez, 27, is already serving a life sentence for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.

Bradley claimed Hernandez became enraged after de Abreu bumped into him while dancing, spilling his drink. He said Hernandez later opened fire on the men's car as they waited at a stoplight.

Bradley also said Hernandez shot him in the face months later after he made a remark about the earlier shootings. Bradley lost his right eye in the shooting. Hernandez was also charged with witness intimidation in connection with Bradley's shooting.

Hernandez's lawyers said it was Bradley -- an admitted drug dealer -- who shot the men over a drug deal. The defense hammered at Bradley's credibility, citing his immunity deal with prosecutors to testify against Hernandez, his role as the driver of the car the night of the shootings and his criminal record. Bradley is serving a five-year prison term in Connecticut for firing shots at a Hartford nightclub in 2014.

Hernandez grew up in Bristol, Connecticut, and played for the Patriots from 2010 to 2012. About six weeks after Furtado and de Abreu were killed, Hernandez signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Patriots and went on to play another season before Lloyd was killed. He was cut from the team shortly after he was arrested in Lloyd's killed in June 2013. He was not charged in the 2012 killings until 2014.

In his first trial, jurors deliberated for 36 hours over seven days before convicting him of murder.

I'm sure the family of the two murdered victims would welcome closure from the outcome of finding justice for their deceased family members. Not exactly pointless, that justice thing.

Also the same answer to, "Why did they prosecute Nazi prison guards who were in their 80s?"

Not just closure, but also insurance. What if his first conviction got overturned on some kind of technicality? It took a tax evasion rap to get Capone.

Aaron Hernandez committed suicide in prison Wednesday morning, the Department of Correction said.

According to a statement from the department, the former New England Patriots star was discovered hanging in his cell at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass., at approximately 3:05 a.m.



“Mr. Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population unit,” the statement said. “Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bedsheet that he attached to his cell window. Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items.”
