Home / National News / Aaron Hernandez Trial: Witness Recalls He Was 'Stressed' Following Murder


(FALL RIVER, Mass.) — Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez appeared “stressed” in the days following the murder of a man he is now on trial for allegedly killing, the victim’s girlfriend testified on Wednesday.

“He seemed stressed,” said Shaneah Jenkins, the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee and girlfriend of Odin Lloyd.

Jenkins made the revelation during cross-examination.

On Tuesday, Jenkins had also taken the stand, telling jurors that Hernandez had comforted her. That exchange had taken place when Jenkins went to Hernandez’s home, where her older sister Shayanna lived at the time with the former Patriots player.

Lloyd’s girlfriend had testified last week that Lloyd and Hernandez were not close. Hernandez’s lawyers have countered that the men were friends and Hernandez had no reason to kill him.
