Hernandez associate seeking more detail on charge

Posted: Updated:

An attorney for a so-called "right-hand man" of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez wants more detail from Massachusetts prosecutors about the accessory to murder charge he faces.

Ernest Wallace's lawyers filed the request Monday in Fall River Superior Court ahead of a brief hearing.

"Despite the commonwealth's representations throughout, including at the bail hearing, about a missing cell phone, or driving a car from Massachusetts to Connecticut, and thirdly, going to Florida. Most respectfully, I'm not exactly sure on behalf of Mr. Wallace what it is they're alleging he did to assist the alleged principal," defense attorney David Meier said.

Wallace pleaded not guilty to accessory to murder after the fact and is being held on $500,000 cash bail. Hernandez pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-professional football player.

Prosecutors say Wallace and associate Carlos Ortiz were with Hernandez and Lloyd on the June night Lloyd was killed. They say Wallace fled to Florida after the killing.

The defense wants more specifics on how Wallace's alleged actions helped Hernandez.

The prosecution's response is due Jan 9.
