A new development has surfaced in the murder trial as Hernandez’s fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, testified that Hernandez was drunk at the time of the killing. She also revealed that she found a firearm in the kitchen junk drawer of their home.
Hernandez’s fiancee had previously received an immunity deal, which meant she had to testify against Hernandez or face jail time.
Jenkins has been accused of perjury by prosecutors for allegedly lying to a grand jury about the killing, and she may be in connection with the murder as she was seen in a surveillance video.
The video consisted of Jenkins carrying a trash bag out of her house, and it allegedly contained the murder weapon that has not been recovered since the incident along with a box.
Hernandez had also hired people to clean his house the day after the incident in question took place, while destroying his home surveillance system and cell phone.
However, the former tight end continues to maintain his innocence.
