Aaron Hernandez is being kept away from other inmates for safety reasons, according to Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson.

The former New England Patriots tight end is being held without bail on a charge of first-degree murder, as well as weapons violations in relation to the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.

Hodgson told that Hernandez has been moved to ‘phase two’ in the Bristol County House of Correction and Jail, meaning the former University of Florida star spends close to 21 hours in a single cell.

His other three hours are spent in the shower area, exercise yard and common area. When Hernandez is in these rooms, no other inmate is allowed to be in the area.

Hernandez initially spent five days in the medical ward of the prison in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, and his ‘phase two’ status will be reviewed once again next week. also reports that a third man has appeared in court in relation to the Lloyd case. Ernest "Bo Fish" Wallace, 41, will be charged with accessory to murder, whilst Carlos Ortiz, is charged with possessing a weapon without a licence.
