They reportedly died around six weeks before Hernandez signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Patriots.

Hernandez is also set to go to trial in January for the 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancée at the time of his death.

Hernandez was let go from the NFL team after being charged with Lloyd's death in 2013. "I'm coming to grab that tonight," Hernandez texted reportedly to Lloyd, according to the court records, via the Boston Globe "u gon b around I need dat and we could step for a little again."

A Bristol Superior Court judge had earlier denied Hernandez's motion to toss key evidence from the athlete's cell phone. Judge E. Susan Garsh wrote "that Hernandez's lawyers voluntarily turned over the phone to State Police on the evening of June 18, 2013, one day after the killing of Lloyd of Dorchester" in her 22-page ruling.
