Miramar man to be sent to Mass. in ex-Pats murder case

 

A man arrested in Florida has agreed to return to Massachusetts to face a charge in the murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

Ernest Wallace faces a charge of accessory after the fact in Odin Lloyd's slaying.

Wallace turned himself in at the Miramar police station last Friday.

An assistant to Broward County Judge John Hurley says Wallace waived extradition Monday and agreed to go back to Massachusetts. In a statement, prosecutors in Bristol County, Mass., say they have 10 days to pick him up.

Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyd's execution-style shooting near Hernandez's North Attleborough home on June 17 after Lloyd spoke with the wrong people at a nightclub.

Prosecutors say Wallace was with Hernandez and Lloyd the night Lloyd was shot.
