Mike Florio, ProFootballTalk:
In the aftermath of the conviction of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez for the murder of Odin Lloyd, it was expected that a date for the next murder trial of Aaron Hernandez would be picked within a matter of days. It wasn’t. It could be today.

According to the Associated Press, a hearing in the case arising from the July 2012 shooting deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado happens Thursday. The judge could pick a day for the commencement of the trial then.

It has been almost three years since the drive-by shooting in the South End of Boston by Aaron Hernandez. The shooting took the lives of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado over a spilled drink in a Boston nightclub. "Mr. de Abreu and Mr. Furtado were ambushed and executed as they drove home along Shawmut Avenue in Boston's South End in the early morning hours of July 16, 2012," Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson warned us that Aaron Hernandez is a "master manipulator" who will attempt to talk his way out of anything. Hernandez knows how to use his charm to manipulate better than anyone he has ever seen. Aaron will need his "A" game in the double-murder case because the evidence could be even stronger than the evidence in the Odin Lloyd trial.

Since the April 15, 2015 sentencing of Aaron Hernandez to life in prison without the possibility of parole, Aaron has been quite busy reading his fan mail and being the lookout for a fellow prisoner in a prison beating.

Aaron may want to familiarize himself with the Mercy Rule.

A mercy rule, also known by the term slaughter rule (or, less commonly, knockout rule and skunk rule), brings a sports event to an early end when one team has a very large and presumably insurmountable lead over the other team. It is called the mercy rule because it spares the losing team the humiliation of suffering a more formal loss, and denies the winning team the satisfaction thereof, and prevents running up the score, a generally discouraged practice in which the opponent continues to score beyond the point when the game has become out of hand.

There is nothing a Prosecutor likes better than a "slam dunk." The court may need a boxing referee seated on the judge's bench.

A second tattoo may in order for the left side. I hear that they won't fade over time.
