DA argues Aaron Hernandez's murder conviction should not be vacated

By committing suicide, did Aaron Hernandez in effect choose to end the appeals process of his conviction for murdering Odin Lloyd in 2013, thus prohibiting him from beating the rap posthumously? Hernandez’s attorneys are arguing Hernandez should be deemed technically innocent because his case was never heard under the state’s automatic appeal process, a requirement for the conviction to be deemed official. Hernandez’s appellate attorneys filed the motion for abatement on April 20, one day after the former New England Patriots star was found dead in his prison cell after hanging himself with a bedsheet.
