Fight over motive as ex-NFL star Hernandez's murder trial ends (Reuters)

By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) – The double murder trial of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez ended on Thursday with the prosecution and his defense attorneys locking horns over whether he had argued with, or even noticed, the men he is charged with gunning down outside a nightclub. Prosecutors contend Hernandez hunted down Cape Verdean nationals Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado and shot them dead after flying into a rage because one of them had inadvertently spilled a drink on him while partying at a Boston club in July 2012. Defense attorney Jose Baez disputed that claim, noting that no video evidence had been presented showing Hernandez interacting with the men during the 9 minutes he spent in the club and that he does not appear wet in surveillance video taken outside.
