Shayanna Jenkins, fiancee of former New England Patriots Aaron Hernandez, was indicted on a perjury charge in connection with the killing of his friend on June 17.
It is not yet confirmed what led to the charge but Jenkins, 24, was indicted on a single count in relation to the killing of Odin Lloyd.
The mother of Hernandez’s child was seen on footage, June 18, leaving the basement of a house around 1:15 p.m. Jenkins was seen carrying a trash bag, that is believed to have contained a heavy “rigid object,” resembling a lock box or safe.
Jenkins then placed the bag in the trunk of her car, a red Nissan Sentra, then drove away and 35 minutes later she returned. On the surveillance video, it shows her opening her trunk but this time, the trash bag was no longer there.
Two others have also been charged in relation to the killing.
Carlos Ortiz, Hernandez’s “right hand man”, was also indicted on the same charge, this Friday.
Hernandez’s cousin, Tanya Singleton, was indicted on a new charge of conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact and earlier, on a charge of criminal contempt after allegedly refusing to testify before the grand jury hearing evidence in the case.
