A judge has tentatively scheduled the Aaron Hernandez double murder trial to begin in May of 2015. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to the drive-by killing of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado after they met at a suburban Boston nightclub.
The thoughts are that Odin Lloyd may have said "too much" about the dealings of Hernandez to Abreu and Furtado and that the duo rubbed Hernandez the wrong way outside of any conversation Lloyd may have had in the club with them.
Hernandez waited until the two left the nightclub and is to alleged to have shot and killed them the same evening.

Hernandez's lawyers also asked Judge Jeffrey Locke to issue a gag order in the case- feeling that Hernandez won't get a fair trial because of the amount of media coverage he has already received in the Lloyd murder case.
Naturally, prosecutors objected and Judge Locke hasn't given a ruling as of yet.
