Second man held in Lloyd murder case

Police in Hartford, Conn., have arrested a second man in connection with the Odin Lloyd murder case, according to

On Wednesday, tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the case of Lloyd, who was found shot to death about a mile from the former New England Patriots' star's home.

The second man, identified as 27-year-old Carlos Ortiz, from Hernandez's hometown of Bristol, Conn., is being held on $1.5 million bond. His records have been sealed and the charges against him have not yet been released.

Reports from the night Lloyd was killed have said that two other men were with Hernandez and Lloyd, and though their identities have yet to be released, it is certainly possible that Ortiz is one of those two men.
