New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez has been charged with one count of murder and five weapons violations in the shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.

Michael Fee, Hernandez's attorney, said his client pleads not guilty to the charges.

Lloyd's body was found less than a mile from Hernandez's home on June 17.

Earlier in the day the Patriots announced Hernandez, who has played regularly for the team, had been cut from the roster.

Will Shane Cameron beat Kali Meehan on Saturday?

For sure. Cameron will knock him out.

It will be close but I think Cameron on points.

Meehan will knock him out. This is his last fight.
