Several documents, including 33 pages of text messages between New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and former player Aaron Hernandez, were submitted in court Monday as evidence.
Both team owner Robert Kraft and Belichick appeared in court as investigators conducted interviews regarding a Hernandez murder charge.
According to the records that were obtained as evidence in the case, Belichick and Hernandez exchanged hundreds of texts from February of 2013 through May of 2013.
The content of the messages hasn’t been revealed though, they do lead up to Hernandez’s arrest.
Hernandez was arrested on June 26, 2013 in North Attleboro, Massachusetts.
Belichick and Kraft are just two among hundreds of others who were interviewed by the prosecution in the Odin Lloyd murder case to date.
Other documents submitted as evidence include Patriots locker-room items, video surveillance and paperwork regarding a damaged car belonging to Hernandez.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Lloyd. Hernandez has also pleaded not guilty to the drive-by shooting murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.
A tentative trial date of October 6 has been set for the Lloyd murder case.
Belichick will lead the Patriots into battle in 2014, and secondary market prices are up this season.
