BOSTON, MA – Aaron Hernandez was back in the courtroom Tuesday for another hearing in the case of two murders separate from the infamous homicide that put the former NFL star in prison.
In a Suffolk Superior Courthouse, a judge heard the testimony of a man by the name of Raychides Sanches who survived a double homicide that occurred outside a Boston nightclub back in 2011. Sanches today identified the former Patriots tight end as the triggerman.

Prosecutors on Tuesday asked Raychides Sanches to describe the chaotic scene during a hearing in Suffolk Superior Court.
When asked who the shooter was, Sanches said “Hernandez” and nodded in his direction.
Sanches made the identification at a pretrial hearing for Hernandez, who is charged in the deaths of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu.
Prosecutors say Hernandez gunned down the men after one of them bumped into him at a nightclub. He has pleaded not guilty.
Hernandez already is serving a life sentence for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd.
