Prosecutors in the murder trial of former NFL star Aaron Hernandez have shown jurors a text message he sent his fiancee directing her to a box in their basement as he sat at a police station for questioning.

Hernandez is now on trial in the June 17, 2013, killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins.

On Tuesday, prosecutors displayed a text message Hernandez sent to Jenkins shortly after midnight June 18.

He says the box is behind the screen in their movie room and their infant daughter likes to play with it.

Prosecutors have said it was code and Jenkins disposed of the box.

A co-defendant told police Hernandez put guns in a box in his basement.

The murder weapon hasn't been found.
