FALL RIVER, Mass. -- Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, charged with murder for what prosecutors say was the execution-style killing of a friend near his house, was denied bail on Thursday. Hernandezs lawyer argued that his celebrity status means even if he wanted to flee he couldnt and that the case against him is circumstantial. "He wants to clear his name," lawyer James Sultan told the judge. But Bristol County Assistant District Attorney Bill McCauley called the evidence in the June 17 slaying of Odin Lloyd overwhelming and said police had made discoveries Wednesday when they searched a condo Hernandez leased and a Hummer registered to him that was parked there. A jogger found Lloyds body in a remote area of an industrial park about a mile from Hernandezs home in North Attleborough 10 days ago. Lloyd was a semi-pro football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandezs fiancee. Prosecutors said Hernandez orchestrated the killing because Lloyd talked to the wrong people at a nightclub. Hernandez, a 2011 Pro Bowl selection who signed a five-year contract with the Patriots worth $40 million, could face life in prison if convicted. In laying out more of the governments case Thursday, McCauley said prosecutors believe that the murder weapon was a .45-calibre Glock and that a gun Hernandez is seen holding on his home surveillance video, a weapon they havent found, appears to be a Glock. The prosecutor said that inside the Hummer investigators recovered an ammunition clip for .45-calibre bullets and that ammunition was found inside the condo. McCauley said a photograph had emerged online of Hernandez holding a Glock. District Attorney Sam Sutter would not be specific when asked by reporters after the hearing when the photo was taken, saying only that the information would emerge with the continuing investigation. Hernandezs lawyer said as far as he knew there was no eyewitness testimony and the prosecution had not given evidence that shows who shot Lloyd or whether there was a plan to kill him. He said Hernandez has no criminal record, owns a home and lives with his 8-month-old daughter and fiancee. "Mr. Hernandez is not just a football player but is one of the best football players in the United States of America," Sultan said, adding, "Hes young man who is extremely accomplished and hardworking in his chosen profession." Hernandez appeared in court with his hands cuffed in front of him and occasionally looked at his fiancee during Thursdays bail hearing. She cried when Bristol Superior Court Judge Renee Dupuis denied the request, but Hernandez showed little emotion. The judge said that it is rare for someone charged with first-degree murder to get bail and that Hernandez had the means to flee if he chose to do so. She acknowledged the prosecutions case was circumstantial but said it was "very, very strong" and called the scenario the prosecution described "cold-blooded." The Patriots cut Hernandez shortly after police arrested him on Wednesday. That day, authorities in Connecticut also made an arrest in connection with Lloyds slaying. New Britain States Attorney Brian Preleski said Thursday that investigators arrested 27-year-old Carlos Ortiz in Hernandez hometown, Bristol, Conn., as part of the murder probe. Authorities charged Ortiz as a fugitive from justice, and he agreed to be transferred to Massachusetts. Prison records show he was being held on $1.5 million bail at a Hartford, Conn., jail, but his public defender, Alfonzo Sirica, declined to comment about the case. On Thursday, residents of a condo complex in Franklin described seeing a two-day police search of the unit that neighbours believed Hernandez was renting. Carol Bailey, who lives next door to the two-bedroom unit, said police removed items from the third-floor condo and asked her questions about its occupants. She said a new tenant of the unit told her in May that he was moving in with his cousin and she realized later that the second man was the Patriots player. "I thought, This is Aaron Hernandez. Hes renting a place here so he can have some peace and quiet," Bailey said Thursday. She said she didnt see the two men often but Hernandez always had a hoodie pulled up when she saw him. "I think all of us who recognized who it was didnt want to invade his privacy," she said. Bailey said police towed a black Hummer with expired, temporary Ohio tags from the condo on Wednesday. Complex resident Kathleen McKeown, whose front door is a few feet from the unit police searched, said there were things that struck her as strange even before that. She said someone had plugged an air freshener into a hallway wall outlet outside the unit and put a jar with fragrance sticks on the floor by the door, as if to mask an odour. "I thought, Why would two guys be worried about the smell out in the hall?" she said. Authorities have said trouble that led to Lloyds killing happened on June 14, when Lloyd went with Hernandez to a Boston nightclub. "Apparently, Mr. Lloyd saw some people that he knew and began conversing with them," McCauley said Thursday. "The defendant took exception to that." Previously, McCauley had said only that Hernandez had unspecified trouble with the people and that a few hours before the killing he told a friend he couldnt trust anyone anymore. Prosecutors have said that on June 16 Hernandez and two unidentified friends picked up Lloyd from his Boston home in a rented silver Nissan Maxima, took him to a remote area of an industrial park and shot him five times. Lloyd, in the minutes before his death, sent a series of texts to his sister, who had seen him get into the car. "Did you see who I was with?" said the first, at 3:07 a.m. June 17. "Who?" she finally replied. "NFL," he texted back, then added: "Just so you know." Prosecutors have said they used cellphone tower data, text messages and surveillance video, including video from the security system Hernandez installed inside his home, to reconstruct his movements that night.

The club announced on Wednesday that Malhotra signed a 25-game professional tryout contract. The 33-year-old suffered a serious eye injury when struck by a puck during a game versus Colorado in March of 2011.NEW ORLEANS - Drew Brees pushed himself up vigorously after being slammed to the Superdome turf, angrily shoving the first player he saw in a purple jersey. Brees soon realized hed shoved the wrong guy, but still thought his intensity sent the right message. "You need to create some fire. You need to create momentum, stuff that guys can feed off of," Brees said. "Obviously I wasnt too happy about getting suplexed, so I showed a little emotion. "After that, it was: All right fellas, weve got to stick it to em." The Saints capitalized on Captian Munnerlyns personal foul for the overzealous sack, driving for a touchdown that gave New Orleans breathing room en route to a 20-9 victory over the seemingly star-crossed Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Brees passed for 293 yards and two touchdowns to help New Orleans (1-2) celebrate its home opener with its first victory this season. The Vikings (1-2), meanwhile, were left still searching for a running game in the absence of Adrian Peterson — and with a rookie at quarterback for the foreseeable future. Minnesotas loss capped a week of distractions as the club first announced that Peterson would play, then later changed course and said the star running back would leave the team indefinitely to deal with child abuse allegations. The Vikings then lost starting quarterback Matt Cassel with a broken foot early in the second quarter. He was replaced by rookie Teddy Bridgewater, who completed 12 of 20 for 150 yards while leading two scoring drives that both ended with field goals. Brees scoring passes went for 34 yards to tight end Josh Hill and 18 yards to receiver Marques Colston. The Vikings were as close as 13-9 on Blair Walshs 40-yard field goal early in the second half, but Munnerlyns penalty squandered what would have been a drive-stalling, third-down sack late in the third quarter. "I pride myself on not making crazy plays, and I felt like that cost us the game," Munnerlyn said. "I wasnt thinking about a flag at all. I never heard a whistle, so I was just finishing the play." Safety Robert Blanton piled on at the end of the sack, then was slow getting off Brees, inducing the shove. But no flag was thrown on Brees, and the Saints wound up with a first down at their 47. Brees thought Munnerlyn committed an obvious penalty with a move reminiscent of professional wrestlingg.dddddddddddd "That was straight Hulk Hogan, 1985, WrestleMania suplex," Brees said. "Hey, it got us 15 yards, got us another set of downs and obviously ended up helping us go on a 90-yard drive to make it a two-possession game and chew up a lot of clock and got the momentum swinging back in our favour." Soon after, Brees found rookie Brandin Cooks on a screen for a 19-yard gain to the Minnesota 18, then hit Colston, who surged through Blantons tackle attempt and stretch across the goal line. Colston had two catches for 25 yards, one week after he was held without a catch for the first time in 87 games. Cooks had eight catches for 74 yards while tight end Jimmy Graham added five catches for 54 yards. Greg Jennings led Vikings receivers with five catches for 70 yards, while Cordarrelle Patterson added four catches for 61 yards. But without Peterson, Minnesota finished with 59 yards rushing as a team and was outgained by New Orleans in total yards, 396-247. Still, Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer focused on the improvement he saw in his teams effort and perseverance since a 30-7 loss to New England a week earlier. "The guys hung in there," Zimmer said. "Our whole thing was that if we get punched, we will punch back. I think we did that." The Saints entered the game looking as competitive as a winless team could be, having held leads in the final 10 seconds of regulation in each of their first two games — on the road — before losing by a field goal or less. The Saints have won their past 18 home games in which coach Sean Payton was on the sideline. They were 9-0 in 2011, including a playoff win, before Payton was suspended in 2012 in connection with the NFLs bounty probe, then went 8-0 in 2013. Brees looked comfortable early, completing his first nine passes for 108 yards while engineering touchdown drives on the Saints first two possessions, and New Orleans never lost the lead. Notes: Colstons touchdown marked the 64th time he and Brees connected for a score. Only six other quarterback-receiver tandems have combined for more in NFL history. The score moved Brees and Colston ahead of the Hall of Fame pair of quarterback Johnny Unitas and receiver Raymond Berry. ... Saints veteran C Jonathan Goodwin left the game in the third quarter with a left leg injury. He was replaced by second-year pro Tim Lelito.
