BOSTON (AP) Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez is due in court for a hearing in the double murder case against him.

Hernandez already is serving a life sentence after he was convicted of killing semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd in 2013.

He's scheduled to appear in Suffolk Superior Court on Tuesday for a status hearing in the 2012 killings of two men outside a Boston nightclub. Hernandez is accused of following the men and opening fire on their car after one of them accidentally spilled a drink on him inside the club. He has pleaded not guilty.
