The former Patriots star is already sentenced to life without the possibility of parole when he was convicted almost two years ago in another murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

Jonathan "D.J." Hernandez has been named a witness on the prosecution's list. It is unclear what First Assistant Suffolk District Attorney Patrick Haggan has in store for the elder Hernandez, a former college football star himself, but one legal expert told the Boston Herald he does not expect that bringing the suspect's brother in as a witness to backfire on the prosecution.
