Former American football player Aaron Hernandez was indicted on Thursday by a grand jury in Massachusetts on a charge of first-degree murder.

The indictment also contains five counts of firearms violations.

The former New England Patriots tight end is charged with killing 27-year-old Odin Lloyd in June.

Lloyd was a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend.

His bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial area near Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.

The 23-year-old Hernandez pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in June, and is being held without bail at a county jail,

If convicted he could face life in prison without parole as Massachusetts does not have the death penalty.
