Ex-Patriot Aaron Hernandez seeks jail transfer

BOSTON (AP) _ Aaron Hernandez's lawyers are asking a judge to transfer the former New England Patriots star to a jail closer to Boston, citing safety and other concerns.

Hernandez's Boston-based attorneys, in a request filed Friday, say they have to travel too far to meet him at the Bristol County jail in Dartmouth.

And the lawyers say they can't always talk privately with Hernandez, who has pleaded not guilty to three murder charges in separate cases in Boston and Bristol County.

Hernandez was in Superior Court in Fall River this week as his lawyers sought to limit evidence against him in the 2013 slaying of former semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd in an industrial park near Hernandez's North Attleborough home.

Hernandez is due in court next week in connection with the 2012 shootings of two men in Boston.
