Lawyers for ex-NFL star Hernandez claims witness was killer (Reuters)

An attorney for ex-New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez claimed on Wednesday that a key witness who prosecutors say will finger the convicted killer as the gunman in a 2012 double murder is blaming his former friend to hide his own guilt. The 27-year-old former professional football player is charged with gunning down two immigrants from Cape Verde, an attack that prosecutors contend was motivated by Hernandez’s anger after one of the men accidentally spilled a drink on him at a Boston nightclub.
