Ernest Wallace is one of two men being held without bond in connection with Aaron Hernandez's alleged murder of Odin Lloyd.


Ernest Wallace is being held without bond in a Florida jail in connection with the Aaron Hernandez murder case, according to South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Massachusetts had a warrant out for Wallace as an accessory after the fact in the Odin Lloyd murder investigation. Wallace turned himself in to police on Friday, and will be brought back to Massachusetts to be arraigned.

Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is charged with first-degree murder in the in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-pro football player. Wallace is the third man being held in connection with the murder. Carlos Ortiz, also 27, was arrested in Connecticut on charges of being a fugitive from justice, and has been extradited to Massachusetts.

Hernandez pleaded not guilty to first degree murder and other charges. Police, meanwhile, are still piecing together details. After Hernandez was arrested, police began investigating his possible connection to a double-murder that took place in July 2012. Safiro Teixeira Furtado and Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu were gunned down in front of a Boston night club about a year ago.
