Shayanna Jenkins, Aaron Hernandez’s fiancee, was indicted today by a grand jury on perjury charges related to the murder of Odin Lloyd. One of Hernandez’s cousins, Tanya Singleton, was also indicted.
Shayanna was charged with a single charge of perjuy, and Tanya was charged with Conspiracy to Commit Accessory After the Fact. Tanya allegedly assisted in helping one of Aaron’s accomplices leave town after the murder.
The Boston Globe is also reporting that Carlos Ortiz, who was with Hernandez the night Lloyd was killed and was previously being held on just a gun charge, was also indicted today. He is now being charged with accessory after the fact charges, which is the same as Ernest Wallace, the other man who was with Hernandez on the night of the killing.
Rumors had been going around that Ortiz had been assisting with the investigation but that his story kept changing, which might be the reason for the upgraded charges.
More info coming soon.
UPDATE: 10/15/13 10:30 AM
Shayanna is due in court this afternoon for her arraignment on the perjury charge.
