FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — A judge has once again postponed Aaron Hernandez’s Boston double murder trial.
On Tuesday, a judge moved the trial date because he is waiting on a decision from the Massachusetts Supreme Court over a cell phone. Hernandez’s defense attorneys claim police investigating the murders illegally took possession of his phone.
The state’s high court will hold a hearing on the evidence seizure on Jan. 5.
