Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole. But he's nowhere near done with his legal troubles. The Bristol native still faces double murder charges in Boston, as well as civil lawsuits over the killings and a lawsuit in Florida from a former friend who said he was shot in the face and left for dead after arguing with Hernandez.

Police have arrested a man who they allege called in a bomb threat that forced the evacuation of the Massachusetts courthouse where Aaron Hernandez's murder trial is being held.

Fall River police on Friday announced the arrest of 55-year-old Paul Haddad of Westwood. Haddad is scheduled to be arraigned Friday. It's not known if he has a lawyer who could comment on the accusations.

Police say Thursday's threat had nothing to do with Hernandez, the former New England Patriots player.

Police did not disclose a motive. Westwood and Fall River are about 50 miles apart.

Testimony in the Hernandez case began Jan. 29. Hernandez is accused in the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.

Aaron Hernandez was indicted yesterday on first-degree murder charges. Prosecutors say the former New England Patriots tight end ambushed and shot to death two men following a chance encounter inside a Boston nightclub. The victims in the July 2012 shooting were killed in a car as they waited at a red light in Boston's South End neighborhood, a few weeks before Hernandez signed a five-year deal worth about $40 million.

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been sued by the family of a Boston man he's accused of killing.

The Fall-River Herald-News reports the wrongful death lawsuit was filed this week in county court in New Bedford.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the June shooting death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-professional football player.

The court filing says unspecified damages probably exceed the value of Hernandez's $1.25 million home, and seeks a real estate attachment up to $5 million.
