Judge denies request by lawyers for ex-NFL player Aaron Hernandez to strike gun testimony

The judge overseeing the murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has denied a defense request to strike testimony from an employee of firearms manufacturer Glock who said surveillance video showed Hernandez carrying a gun through his home less than 10 minutes after the killing.

Hernandez lawyer James Sultan on Thursday asked for Wednesday's testimony to be stricken, but Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh denied the request.

Kyle Aspinwall's testimony was the most conclusive to date that puts a weapon in Hernandez's hand around the time of the slaying.

Hernandez is charged with murder in the killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.

Aspinwall says video surveillance also showed Hernandez carrying a gun a few hours before the killing.
