BOSTON GLOBE-- Jurors in the murder trial of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez on Tuesday watched a video of the athlete dismantling his cellphone and using a second phone to make a call, hours after the body of the victim was found.
The footage, shot early on June 18, 2013, as Hernandez sat in a vehicle outside a police station, was among several pieces of evidence that prosecutors introduced Tuesday in their effort to link Hernandez to the crime scene and to his alleged accomplices in the slaying of Odin L. Lloyd, 27, of Dorchester.
A teenage jogger discovered Lloyd’s body in an industrial yard near Hernandez’s North Attleborough home around 5 p.m. on June 17, 2013. Hernandez, 25, has pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in Lloyd’s death.
