Hernandez is accused of shooting and killing two men, Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28, in the early morning hours of July 16, 2012, after the pair allegedly spilled a drink on the former NFL player in a nightclub. Hernandez is already serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin L. Lloyd.
