The fiancee of ex New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez … along with Hernandez’s cousin … were indicted today .. in connection with the Odin Lloyd murder case.
According to the Bristol County, MA D.A.’s Office Shayanna Jenkins — Aaron’s fiancee and baby mama — was hit with a single count of perjury. No further detail has been provided on her charge.
Tanya Singleton — Aaron’s cousin — was charged with Conspiracy to Commit Accessory After the Fact. Translation: authorities believe she helped one of Aaron’s alleged accomplices get outta dodge … by buying him a bus ticket to Florida.
That guy, Ernest Wallace, was eventually arrested in FL, and charged with being an accessory to Lloyd’s murder.
Singleton has already pled not guilty to a criminal contempt charge — authorities say she refused to testify before the Grand Jury in the murder case.
Jenkins and Singleton were not arrested … and they don’t have a court date scheduled yet.
Jenkins faces up to 2-and-a-half years in a county jail if convicted on the perjury charge … but sources close to the situation tell us she would likely only get six months to a year. She could also be hit with a $1,000 fine.
If she goes to jail … child services would have to make arrangements with Jenkins’ family for the care of her child … since both parents — Hernandez and Jenkins — would be behind bars.
