Here are some of the key moments from the past week of his murder trial:
Victim’s sister can talk about the texts
Judge Susan Garsh on Monday reversed her initial ruling to block any mention of multiple texts from Lloyd before he was slain.
Lloyd’s sister, Shaquilla Thibou will be able to say she received four texts from her brother just minutes before his death.
The last text came at 3:23 a.m., a minute before workers in the industrial park where Lloyd’s body later was found heard gunshots.
Thibou had been expected to testify Friday, but that testimony was delayed as the court proceedings focused instead on exploring critical cellphone records.
Thibou will not be able to talk about the nature of the texts, including this one that prosecutors say was from Lloyd: “U saw who I’m with… Nfl… just so u know.”
Surveillance video shows Hernandez pulling up to a gas station in his rented silver Nissan Altima at 2 a.m. that June 17, a little more than an hour before Lloyd’s death. Wallace and Ortiz are with him.
The surveillance video was shown in court this week.
Hernandez and Ortiz exit the car. Ortiz is wearing a white towel, which prosecutors say is the same one found at the crime scene. Hernandez dances a few times — once as he walks in front of his car and into the store, where he and Ortiz buy cotton candy-flavored bubble gum and a box of Black & Mild cigars. A chewed piece of gum was found stuck to a .45-caliber shelling in a trash bin at an Enterprise rental car place, a detective said.
Surveillance video shows Hernandez dancing again, pumping his arms in the air as he returns to his car and walks around.
The three men leave the gas station at 2:12 a.m. Twenty minutes later, at 2:32 a.m., another surveillance video shows a silver Nissan Altima pull up in front of Lloyd’s house.
Lloyd is waiting outside and gets in the car.
