Filing: Tossing conviction would reward Hernandez's suicide

A request by lawyers for ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez to dismiss his murder conviction would reward his ''conscious, deliberate and voluntary'' act of taking his own life, prosecutors argued Monday. Hernandez was serving a life sentence without parole in the 2013 killing of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd when he hanged himself in his prison cell on April 19. The former New England Patriots tight end died five days after being acquitted in a separate double slaying in 2012.
