The fiancee of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez has left a closed-court hearing on a petition to grant her immunity in Hernandez's upcoming murder trial without commenting.

Shayanna Jenkins went before the judge Wednesday on a prosecutors' petition to grant her immunity in the case.

Jenkins' lawyer, Janice Bassil, refused comment.

The state has also petitioned to grant immunity to a second, unidentified witness.

Lawyer E. Peter Parker said outside court he was representing a party in the petition. Leaving the courtroom with the woman, Parker said he would not comment because the matter was under seal. He didn't identify the woman. Parker represented Hernandez's cousin Tanya Singleton.

Jenkins is charged with perjury for allegedly lying to a grand jury investigating the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was found shot to death in an industrial park near Hernandez and Jenkins' North Attleborough home.
