Lawyers Move to Quash Aaron Hernandez Murder Conviction

Lawyers for former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez are asking for his first-degree murder conviction to be overturned following his death in prison. Defense lawyers filed the motion on Tuesday, a spokesman for Bristol district attorney’s office in Massachusetts told the Associated Press. Hernandez, 27, hanged himself last week in a maximum security state prison, days after he was acquitted of shooting dead two men in Boston in 2012.
