    Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez appeared in court in Boston in connection with the shooting deaths of two men in 2012.

    Hernandez and his lawyers attended a status conference Wednesday for his upcoming trial in Suffolk Superior Court.

    He's accused of killing Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreau in a drive-by shooting following a dispute at a Boston nightclub.

    The former star tight end also faces an additional count of witness intimidation. Prosecutors say he shot a witness in the face.

    Hernandez is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for the 2013 murder of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.

    Jury selection for the Boston murder trial is set to begin Feb. 13.

    Hernandez grew up in Bristol, Connecticut.
