Man who sued Aaron Hernandez due to testify in murder trial

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — A man who sued Aaron Hernandez over being shot in the face in Florida is due to take the stand in the former New England Patriots player’s murder trial.

But prosecutors will not be allowed to ask Alexander Bradley Wednesday about the shooting, which happened a few months before the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in Lloyd’s killing. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.

Bradley says he got into an argument with Hernandez after leaving a Florida strip club in February 2013 and was shot between the eyes and dumped in an industrial area.

The judge has ruled Bradley can’t testify about the Florida shooting, but she said he will be able to testify after she questions him outside the jury’s presence.
