Prosecutors will go before Massachusetts’ highest court Tuesday in an attempt to obtain a cellphone they believe has evidence in former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez’s upcoming double murder trial.
According to the Boston Globe, Suffolk County prosecutors believe the phone has evidence in the alleged shooting associate Alexander Bradley.
Hernandez reportedly feared Bradley would implicate him in the 2012 fatal shootings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in Boston’s South End.
The phone is currently in the possession of Rankin & Sultan, the Boston firm representing Hernandez.
