Feds may get involved in Aaron Hernandez case

(WOIO) -

Federal court may get involved in the Aaron Hernandez murder case. Attorney Jack Furlong explained during Wednesday's edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN that the feds could still get involved in this one and that Hernandez ultimately could be facing the death penalty.

"If this was a murder of a witness or someone who knew something about the earlier murder, then this case becomes potentially a death penalty case and a federal proceeding," Furlong explained regarding the killing of Odin Lloyd, who reportedly may have known something about Hernandez's involvement in the double murder.

Massachusetts does not have the death penalty, But the United States government does. This case went across state lines repeatedly between Florida, Connecticut and Massachusetts.  It could go federal in a heartbeat.

So, basically, there's a chance that Aaron Hernandez eventually could be executed.
