More Aaron Hernandez shockers in the former NFL players murder trial.
According to The Boston Globe Wednesday, Hernandez's lawyers are "claiming that Bristol County prosecutors borrowed words and ideas in their court filings from the federal prosecutors who are bringing the case against alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev."
Hernandez's lawyers requested that his January trial be moved from the Fall River courthouse. They wrote that the prosecutors "cut and pasted sections from documents that federal prosecutors" in their opposition to the trial move.
"Leaving aside all of the reactions one might have on many levels to this extensive, undisclosed submission of another's work to a court, the conduct appears to convey a lack of interest on the part of the Commonwealth in fashioning its own vigorous opposition to Hernandez's motion for a change of venue,'' Hernandez's attorneys wrote according to the website.
"By simply cutting and pasting the work of others, the Commonwealth conveys the message that a recycled opposition is sufficient to blunt Hernandez's motion for a change of venue. In so doing, the Commonwealth greatly misapprehends the well-founded basis for Hernandez's motion and the unique circumstances of this case,'' it continued.
Hernandez's January trial is for the murder of Odin L. Lloyd. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancée at the time of his death.
Hernandez was let go from the New England Patriots football team after being charged with Lloyd's death in 2013.
