Prosecutor: Texts, surveillance video lead to charges against Hernandez in killing of friend

Prosecutors say in the final minutes of his life, semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd sent a series of text messages to his sister.

"Did you see who I was with?" said the first, at 3:07 a.m. June 17. "Who?" she finally replied.

"NFL," he texted back, then added: "Just so you know."

Moments later, 27-year-old Lloyd would be dead in what authorities say was an execution-style shooting orchestrated by New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez because his friend talked to the wrong people at a nightclub.

Hernandez was charged with murder and five weapons counts on Wednesday. A judge ordered him held without bail. If convicted, 23-year-old Hernandez could get life in prison without parole.

Hernandez was cut from his NFL team less than two hours after his arrest.
