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.
