Opening arguments are set to begin to today in the trial of former Patriots player Aaron Hernandez.

Eighteen people were seated last week on the jury, 12 jurors and 6 alternates. Of those selected five were men 13 were women.

Hernandez is facing murder charges for the shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. Lloyd was a semi-pro football player who was romantically involved with Hernandez’s fianc√©’s sister.

His body was found in a North Attleboro industrial park just blocks from Hernandez’s home.
