Aaron Hernandez Fiancee

Indicted In Murder Case

The fiancee of ex New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez ... along with Hernandez's cousin ... were indicted today .. in connection with the Odin Lloyd murder case.

According to the Bristol County, MA D.A.'s Office Shayanna Jenkins -- Aaron's fiancee and baby mama -- was hit with a single count of perjury. No further detail has been provided on her charge.

Tanya Singleton -- Aaron's cousin -- was charged with Conspiracy to Commit Accessory After the Fact. Translation: authorities believe she helped one of Aaron's alleged accomplices get outta dodge ... by buying him a bus ticket to Florida.

That guy, Ernest Wallace, was eventually arrested in FL, and charged with being an accessory to Lloyd's murder.

Singleton has already pled not guilty to a criminal contempt charge -- authorities say she refused to testify before the Grand Jury in the murder case.

Jenkins and Singleton were not arrested ... and they don't have a court date scheduled yet.

Jenkins faces up to 2-and-a-half years in a county jail if convicted on the perjury charge ... but sources close to the situation tell us she would likely only get six months to a year.  She could also be hit with a $1,000 fine.

If she goes to jail ... child services would have to make arrangements with Jenkins' family for the care of her child ... since both parents -- Hernandez and Jenkins -- would be behind bars.

Nice eyebrows, Sheneneh. Maybe you can draw / paint some like yours on Tanya while you're killing time in prison.

okay, so the child mother gets convicted because her husband killed someone.
the boston bomber's wife does even get question as an accessory or looks a bit suspicious. Instead she is treated with kid gloves and sequestered into anonymity paid by tax payers.

crazy....

All this moron football player and his tribe had to do was simply obey the most basic law and continue to make millions doing something he loved for a few months a year. I guess that was too complicated. I hope they ALL serve time. This is stupid.

TMZ needs to get the location correct. This is not the first time you have made this mistake. But again, TMZ reporters aren't Pulitzer caliber by any means. It's Bristol County, MA not CT. Geeesh!!

Shayanna lied about what? Then his cousin bought his friend a bus ticket so she is covering up a crime? I think maybe she did it as a favor to her cousin. I still am not sure I am buying the whole murder story. When they go arresting everyone around the accused, it seems like the Boston bombing set up all over again.


The cousin refuse to testify also. Maybe she felt the charges were so crazy, she refused to cooperate. What could it hurt to testify though? This also makes me think that these people might all be being set up.


Suddenly two more people related to him are just charged with more crimes relating to the case.

question
why are the authorities spending so much time on arresting everyone else rather then building evidence on him for murder?
I have a feeling they dont have enough evidence on him for murder.
they are hoping the people around him become scared enough to testify against him.
They REALLY want him to be found guilty for this murder.

It's either that or they HATE the fact that his wife isn't a blond and named Shayanna.
