Today the Aaron Hernandez murder trial continued and once again his fiancee Shayanna Jenkins testified. Jenkins continued to tell the story of how Hernandez asked her to move a box that weighed about 40lbs and dispose of it the day after the alleged murder. She remains adamant that she never opened the box and had no idea of its contents.
The prosecution maintains that the box in question contained the murder weapon, which has never been found to date. Jenkins was forced to testify as a condition of immunity from prosecution in the case. That said, she didn’t give up much information that would be damaging, as she continues to plead ignorance as to the location of the dumpster she dropped the box in.
It was reported from the hearings today that Jenkins sister, Shaneah, left the court in tears following the testimony.
