Former New England Patriots Tight-End Aaron Hernandez and his 'accomplices' have now all learnt their fate.

Hernandez has been jailed for several months following the events of last summer but today, two of his associates have been indicted on murder charges.

Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace received separate indictments for the murder of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd in June 2013.

Both Ortiz and Wallace had previously been charged with being accessory to murder, a crime to which they both pleaded not guilty but were still held with bail set at $500,000.

Hernandez, who was indicted himself in August 2013 and Wallace had both been thought to be out the car when Lloyd was killed but now Ortiz's statement goes against that.

Ortiz had reported that both men had left the car but now his story has changed to say that only Hernandez got out with Lloyd.

Hernandez had been one of the best Tight-ends in the NFL and a key part to a dangerous Patriots offense but his fall from grace has been well documented and is clearly, far from over.
