Florida – The fiancée of former NFL player Aaron Hernandez, who has been charged in the death of Odin Lloyd, recently shocked those in the courtroom while giving testimony in Hernandez’s murder trial. As reported by WebProNews, Shayanna Jenkins stated on Monday that she had smelled the box Hernandez asked her to dispose of a day after Odin Lloyd’s body was found, but had not been told what it contained.
Jenkins said that she dropped the box off at a random dumpster after borrowing her sister’s vehicle. She is quoted as stating during her testimony, “I found a random dumpster, I don’t know exactly where it was located… I really had to play a neutral role as far as trying to comfort my sister. Everyone’s emotions were kind of on me.”
Jenkins’ reportedly can be seen on video surveillance footage leaving the house carrying a bulky box covered by a garbage bag and baby clothes.
Prosecutors have expressed their belief that the box contained the weapon used to kill Llyod. It has yet to be determined how Jenkins’ testimony may impact the trial.
Jenkins and Hernandez share a two-year-old child together. Llyod was the boyfriend of Jenkins’ sister.
