The girlfriend of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been indicted on a perjury charge in connection with the killing of his friend.
A Massachusetts prosecutor said Friday that a grand jury indicted Shayanna Jenkins on a single count in relation to the investigation into the June 17 killing of the friend, Odin Lloyd.
Lloyd was found shot to death in an industrial park in North Attleborough, Mass., near Hernandez's home, where Jenkins also lives. Her sister had been dating Lloyd.

Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was indicted Thursday on a first-degree murder charge in the death of a friend whose bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park about a mile from the ex-player's home.
The six-count grand jury indictment charges Hernandez with killing 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend. It also contains weapons counts, according to the Fall River division of Bristol County Superior Court.
Hernandez, 23, pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in June, and he is being held without bail at a county jail. His lawyers say the case against him is circumstantial and they're confident he will be able to clear his name.

An associate of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez said he was told Hernandez fired the shots that resulted in the death of a semi-pro football player, according to documents filed in Florida.
The records, obtained by the Associated Press, also show that a vehicle wanted in a double killing in Boston a year before had been rented in Hernandez's name.
Together, the revelations provide the most damning evidence yet against the 23-year-old star athlete.

Aaron Hernandez's athletic star power was recognizable from the time he was in high school. So, it appears, were the warning signs.
Throughout his football career, into college and onto the big money with the pros, it was always one step forward, one step back – on-field glory eclipsed by off-field troubles – until it all came crashing down this week.
The 23-year-old was charged for the first degree murder of Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd near the NFL star's North Attleborough, Mass., home. He is also under investigation for two more killings and has five other gun-related charges connected to Lloyd's death, which occurred on June 17.

Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, who has been charged with a murder and cut from the team, is also being investigated in connection with a drive-by shooting that killed two men, ABC News reports.
Hernandez spent the night in jail after authorities led him from his North Attleboro, Mass., home on Wednesday and then charged him in the murder of Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's house.
According to ABC, police are also looking into his possible involvement in a July 15, 2012, early-morning ambush of a car in Boston that left the driver and one of the passengers dead of gunshot wounds. A third man was injured. ABC says Hernandez was spotted earlier that night involved in an altercation at a nightclub.
