ATTLEBORO, Mass. -- Bail was set Friday at $500,000 cash for a so-called right-hand man of Aaron Hernandez who prosecutors say was with the former New England Patriots star on the night his friend was shot to death.
Ernest Wallace appeared in Attleboro District Court on a charge of being an accessory after the fact to murder in Odin Lloyd's killing.
Hernandez, 23, has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's home. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend. Prosecutors say Hernandez, Wallace and a third man, Carlos Ortiz, drove with Lloyd to the industrial park.
