By Cheryl Fiandaca, WBZ-TV Chief Investigative Reporter

BOSTON (CBS) – Documents recently obtained by WBZ-TV’s I-Team reveal part of what life was like for former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez in jail.

Hernandez spent several months at the Bristol County House of Correction while on trial for the murder of Odin Lloyd. During that time he was also indicted for the 2012 double murder of Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu in Boston’s South End.

The records, released as part of public information request, include Hernandez’s intake sheet, disciplinary actions, daily schedules, a Hernandez Personal & Issued Property Receipt, and a look at the books he took out from the jail library.

Among the other documents released – a hand-written note to the superintendent asking that he be given permission for a special visit from two friends and a hand-written complaint from Hernandez about the eggs and potatoes served at breakfast.

Hernandez was eventually convicted of the Lloyd murder and later found not guilty in the murders of Furtado and Abreu.

The former Patriots tight end hanged himself in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley in April.

His conviction for the murder of Lloyd was subsequently vacated since his case was on direct appeal at the time of his death.
