Trial date set for ex-Patriots star Hernandez in 2 slayings (The Associated Press)

Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez will stand trial early next year in the 2012 fatal shootings of two men outside a Boston nightclub, a crime prosecutors say was prompted by Hernandez’s rage over a spilled drink. A judge set the Feb. 13 trial date Tuesday after Hernandez’s new attorneys said they could not be ready by this fall. Hernandez, who is serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder, recently hired a new defense team that includes Florida attorney Jose Baez, known for winning an acquittal for Casey Anthony in the death of her daughter during a highly publicized trial in 2011.
