Bears player calls Hernandez 'my guy' at double-murder trial

The brother of former NFL-star-turned convicted murder Aaron Hernandez is set to testify at his second murder trial, now underway at the Suffolk County District Court in Boston.

The former New England Patriots tight end played football with Thompson at the University of Florida.

According to the Boston Globe, Thompson has nothing but good things to say about Hernandez - calling him "my guy" and putting his fist to his chest when he walked by the suspect on the way out of the courtroom.

He has also pleaded not guilty to shooting Bradley in Florida on the morning of February 13, 2013, in a failed effort to silence him about the Boston killings.

So his father drove him to the home of the girlfriend of Je'rrelle Pierre, the driver of the SUV, so he could pick up the device, Crawford testified. Despite the fact that Hernandez has already been found guilty of one murder and is potentially going to be convicted on another two, Thompson appears to be still quite friendly with Hernandez.

Pivotal Research's Brian Wieser wrote in a note on Monday that the controversy will "curtail global growth this year". The British government said last week that it would temporarily restrict its advertising on the company's platforms.

London said he knew Hernandez through hsi work and would see him frequently at clubs around Boston.

Hernandez's brother, Jonathan "DJ" Hernandez, was originally expected to testify Tuesday.

Monday marks the 17th day of testimony and evidence.

A club promoter's testimony will be allowed in court on Monday in the double murder trial of Aaron Hernandez, but a judge pushed the testimony of the former NFL's older brother to Tuesday. That witness was Alexander Bradley, and the "intimidation" was a bullet to the face.

Crawford had testified Monday that he did not recall a discussion about paying the bill at Tootsie's, but he did say all five men, including Hernandez and Bradley, left together in one vehicle.

The former Patriots star is already sentenced to life without the possibility of parole when he was convicted almost two years ago in another murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.
