The case against Hernandez took a hit with one of the key witnesses not giving much information.
Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been facing the charge of murdering Odin Lloyd since this past summer. Now, the case against against Hernandez is in jeopardy. Carlos Ortiz, thought to be the star witness for the prosecution, has been left off the witness list, according to Pro Football Talk. Ortiz has been deemed "completely unreliable" since he has changed the story he originally told authorities.
The prosecution will now have to find another way to go after Hernandez, who has been in custody. Hernandez is accused of killing Lloyd, a former semi-pro football player, then trying to hide and destroy evidence with the help of his girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins. If convicted of the murder, Hernandez could be facing life in prison.
Ernest Wallace, who was also allegedly in the car with Hernandez at the time of Lloyd's murder, won't be testifying against Hernandez.
