Aaron Hernandez to be arraigned Friday

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will be arraigned this Friday at 2 p.m., according to a report from Fox 29 in Boston.

Hernandez was charged with first degree murder in the death of semipro football player Odin Lloyd, 27.

A trial date is expected to come soon after Hernandez enters his plea. Though this case is beginning to move, Hernandez is also being investigated for a double murder that happened in the Boston area around 2012.

Friday's arraignment will be a simple affair. Hernandez will enter a guilty or not guilty plea.

Hernandez has been held without bail since his arrest on June 26.
