Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was indicted on murder by a grand jury Thursday.
Hernandez, 23, was scheduled to appear in court at 2 p.m. ET for a probable cause hearing.
Hernandez had been charged with the murder of 27-year-old semipro football player and friend Odin Lloyd in the June 17 shooting of Lloyd. Hernandez has been held without bail since June 26.
Prosecutors say Hernandez "orchestrated" the killing of Lloyd, a buddy Hernandez said he could no longer trust in his inner circle.
