Fiancee of ex-NFL star testifies in his double-murder trial

Posted April 07, 2017

Lindsey told Assistant District Attorney Patrick Haggan he did not want to be there testifying, having had to take a day off work in order to drive up from CT to Suffolk Superior Court. Jenkins-Hernandez, who has a 4-year-old daughter with the defendant, said she took Hernandez's name in 2015.

"I learned to keep my mouth shut in certain situations", she said, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Thompson was called by prosecutors Monday to testify about a Florida party he invited Hernandez to in February 2013.

Jenkins-Hernandez was asked about the Florida shooting of Alexander Bradley, which prosecutors say was committed by Hernandez.

This was part of her testimony today during Hernandez's double-murder trial for the July 2012 homicides of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

Thursday marked the second time Jenkins Hernandez was called to the stand in the murder trial against her fiancé.

However, numerous witnesses prosecutors have called to testify against Hernandez have had the same problem of not remembering events, including the men who told police they were with Hernandez when Bradley claims he was shot.

She said she first heard that Bradley had been shot from another person, and not Hernandez.

Jenkins was also shown pictures of some of Hernandez's tattoos, and asked to explain their meanings.

Hernandez's lawyers say Bradley shot the men over a drug deal. They rekindled their relationship when Hernandez joined the Patriots.

Jenkins has continued to support the former Patriots tight end and has been a constant presence in the courtroom throughout the trial.

"I played my role", Jenkins-Hernandez testified.

Hernandez is already serving a life sentence after being convicted in the 2013 killing of a man who was dating the sister of Jenkins-Hernandez. Hernandez smiled when Thompson referred to him as "my guy" from the witness stand.
