The former Patriots tight end has pleaded not guilty to murder in the 2013 death of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd. Lloyd’s body was found in an industrial park about a half-mile from Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough.
On Monday, Judge Susan Garsh denied a request from Hernandez’s lawyers to suppress surveillance footage from Hernandez’s home and evidence obtained from a cellphone.
The judge has not yet ruled on a request to suppress other cellphones and three iPads seized from the house.
Hernandez has also pleaded not guilty in the 2012 killings of two Boston men.
