Aaron Hernandez Convicted of First-degree Murder

Jurors in the trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez have found him guilty of first degree murder, which carries a penalty of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Hernandez was also found guilty of unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition. As the verdict was read, the former standout tight end appeared upset but calm -- pursing his lips and taking a deep breath, as his lawyer put his arm around him. He looked over to see his mother and fiancee weeping. He mouthed to them, "It's OK."
Hernandez was on trial for the shooting death of Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in a Massachusetts industrial park in June 2013.
