BOSTON (AP) — A cousin of a former New England Patriots player charged with murder has been jailed in Massachusetts.

A Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department spokesman says Tanya Cummings-Singleton has been in custody since Aug. 1 but won’t say why.

Bristol District Attorney Sam Sutter’s spokesman said Friday he couldn’t comment on anything related to a closed grand jury proceeding. Sutter’s office is prosecuting Cummings-Singleton’s cousin Aaron Hernandez in the death of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez was cut by the Patriots and has pleaded not guilty.

A recent affidavit says after Lloyd’s killing Cummings-Singleton bought a bus ticket for Ernest Wallace, who’s believed to have been with Hernandez the night Lloyd died.

Wallace later surrendered in Florida. He has denied a charge of accessory to murder after the fact.

Cummings-Singleton’s family hasn’t commented.
