11:03 AM PT -- The prosecutor just announced the indictment returned against Hernandez on multiple charges, including murder, carrying a firearm, possession of a firearm, possession of a high-capacity firearm or feeding device, and 2 counts of possession of ammunition.

As he sat down, Hernandez mouthed the words "I love you" to family members in court.

Another hearing has been set for next Friday.

gray-bar-update
NFL star Aaron Hernandez has just been indicted on a 1st degree murder charge in the death of 27-year-old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd -- and he's due in court any moment to face his stark new reality.

Hernandez was originally expected in court today for a probable cause hearing -- where prosecutors would have presented evidence that a) a crime was committed, and b) that Hernandez committed the crime.

But a grand jury has already returned an indictment, meaning prosecutors won't have to present additional evidence to justify a trial.

Translation: the probable cause hearing is now pretty much a formality ... but we may still hear from Hernandez' lawyer.

Hymm... Being attractive by societies standard worked well for Amanda knox, Casey Anthony, but not so much for Jodi Arias! Strange culture! I have no agenda with any of these people, just find the "he's hot" comments comical! Oh yeah, I guess there is a bunch of Scott Peterson groupies, as well as the Boston bomber kid, guess he has followers too! Odd, just odd... Kinda always been that way historically...

Can't wait for the trial to begin. The evidence against him seems damaging but that can definitely change when the defense has a chance to present their case. Aaron is an innocent man until the verdict is read. Prayers go out to all the families involved. Remember this could be your son, father, brother or husband. They are all being drug through the mud with him.

That guy had it all and now he'll be lucky if he ever gets out of prison. What a waste.

Dude had it all, talent, good looks, money, and threw it all away. I bet there'll never come a day when he won't think about that.

Hernandez has been officially decreed poster boy for one of the dumbest MFs in the existence of the human race past, present, and future. Good thing breathing is autonomous because he is too stupid to do it on his own. Losing it all on some ghetto high school gang crap. SMH...... :(

This case is cir***stantial at best. I not saying he didn't do it but the prosecution cannot even find the gun and put it in his had and the motive is shakey. I can't wait for the defense to present their case
