(WPRI) – The third suspect in the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd was released into the custody of Massachusetts law enforcement on Friday afternoon.
The Broward Sheriff's Office told Eyewitness News that suspect Ernest Wallace is most likely already in Massachusetts, and is expected to face a criminal charge of accessory to murder-after the fact.
In an extradition hearing on Monday, Wallace waived his right to contest rendition to Massachusetts. The 41-year-old suspect had a brief bailing hearing on Saturday morning in Broward County after he turned himself into police. He had been held without bond in a Florida jail.
Wallace will be formally arraigned in Attleboro District Court.

Last Friday, the second suspect in the murder of Odin Lloyd was arraigned in Attleboro District Court. Carlos Ortiz pleaded not guilty to charges of carrying a firearm without a license and was ordered held without bail.
Ex-Patriots tight-end Aaron Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder in connection to Lloyd's murder. Lloyd's body was found on June 17 in a North Attleboro industrial park which was about a mile from Hernandez' home.
Last week, Hernandez appeared in Fall River Superior Court for his arraignment and bail review hearing. The ex-football star was denied a request for bail as a judge referred to the case as a "cold-blooded" killing.
Hernandez is due back in court on July 24.
