One of the witnesses in the double-murder case was Alexander Bradley, a friend of Aaron Hernandez who was promised immunization in exchange for his testimony. "One of the victims" relatives said, "At least he's not walking out the door today'".
The prosecution's case was light on forensics, and relied heavily on testimony from Bradley, who said he was with Hernandez during the fatal shooting. The defense hammered at Bradley's credibility, citing his immunity deal with prosecutors to testify against Hernandez, his role as the driver of the vehicle the night of the shootings and his criminal record.

Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado were shot to death as they waited at a stoplight in the early morning of July 16, 2012. Bradley lost his right eye in the shooting.
Defense attorneys said they had a hard time getting the subpoena in Belichick's hands, and decided that his testimony was not critical to their case. That said, if there's any discretion to be exercised by the judge that makes the final decision - and if that judge personally believes Hernandez killed one, two, or three people - the discretion could be exercised in a way that results in Hernandez remaining in prison.

Hernandez, 27, grew up in Bristol, Connecticut, and played for the Patriots from 2010 to 2012.
