Hernandez lawyers seek to suppress evidence seized from car cited in double slaying

Lawyers for former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez are asking a judge to toss out evidence seized from an SUV authorities say Hernandez was in when he fatally shot two men over a spilled drink.

Prosecutors say Hernandez killed Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in 2012 after a chance encounter at a Boston nightclub. They say Hernandez followed the men in a Toyota 4Runner, pulled up to their car at a light and opened fire.

Hernandez's lawyers argue that evidence seized from the vehicle should be tossed because a man whose statements police relied on to get a search warrant failed a lie-detector test.

Hernandez was convicted in April in the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of his fiancée. He faces trial in December in the double-murder case.
