Aaron Hernandez Allegedly Killed Two People Over A Spilled Drink

The former Patriots tight end plead not guilty to two charges of first-degree murder in a Massachusetts court.

1. On Wednesday, Aaron Hernandez was arraigned on charges involving the 2012 murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. Prosecutors argued the incident began when one of the victims bumped into Hernandez and spilled his drink at a Boston-area nightclub.
