Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez has been found not guilty of murder and several other charges related to the 2012 killing of two men.
Hernandez was acquitted of all charges with the exception of possession of a firearm without a license.
Hernandez received 4-5 years in prison for the gun possession charge . He is already serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.
Jurors deliberated for nearly six days and about 36-hours before reaching the verdict Friday just before 3 p.m.
Hernandez was on trial for two counts of first-degree murder in the shootings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in Boston’s South End on July 16, 2012.
Family members of both men sobbed in court as the verdict was read.
