(Attleboro, MA) -- A judge in Massachusetts is giving prosecutors more time to gather evidence for a probable cause hearing in the murder case against former NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez. The judge ruled in favor of a prosecution request for a continuance today as a grand jury continues to review new evidence in the case. The defense team strongly objected to delay, saying the defendant sits in a solitary cell after the Commonwealth previously said it had a "slam dunk case." Hernandez is due back in court on August 22nd. He previously pleaded not guilty to weapons and murder charges.
