As reported, Hernandez, 27, had been serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez.

Despite his relationship with Shayanna, Hernandez was said to be romancing a 22-year-old armed robber while locked up.

Hernandez was cleared of a 2012 double homicide in the days before he took his own life.
