(FALL RIVER, Mass.) — The courthouse where the Aaron Hernandez murder trial is being held was evacuated on Thursday morning due to a bomb threat.
ABC’s Boston affiliate, WCVB-TV, reported that no explosives were found and employees were allowed back into the courthouse about an hour after the threat was called in. Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh reportedly told jurors that there was no reason to believe the interruption was related to the Hernandez case.
Hernandez’s fiancee, Shayannah Jenkins, could testify as early as Friday.
Hernandez is on trial for the June 2013 murder of his friend Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.
