gray-bar-update
Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez is scheduled to be arraigned this morning on charges he murdered 27-year-old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. He's expected to plead not guilty ... and we're streaming live inside the courtroom.

As we reported, Hernandez has long insisted he's innocent.

23-year-old Hernandez was formally indicted last month, when he was hit with a laundry list of criminal charges, including 1st degree murder, carrying a firearm, possession of a firearm, possession of a high-capacity firearm or feeding device, and 2 counts of possession of ammunition.

It's the same jurisdiction where Lizzie Bordon was tried.

Does anyone else think Hernandez' lawyer is awful? It's just embarrassing watching him try to dispute all the evidence that's stacked up. When he's talking, I just shake my head and think "Nice try, buddy. Nice try".

He's innocent, he didn't murder him, his buddy Carlos Ortiz did.

Let the trial play out. Hernandez could be protecting Ortiz! If he is then he is guilty of that but not murder. If everyone including his own cousin is calling Ortiz a snitch and a marked man then what would that make Hernandez if he snitched? So many different scenarios are possible so let's see how the trial goes. Most importantly god bless Lloyd's family. I also wish the best for the Hernandez family also. It must be hell for the world to see your dirty laundry. Keep your heads up!

He seems so shy. His whole demeanor says not guilty to me. He doesn't have the attitude of a killer. He has the confidence of an innocent man. He reminds me of George Zimmerman standing accused.

I really REALLY hope he gets off if he is innocent. That is so unfair that he is being framed.
