In court Friday, McCauley painted Wallace as having no fixed address and no job and said Hernandez appeared to be his “sole support.” He said Wallace has been described as Hernandez’s right-hand man, and that he had been spending more time at Hernandez’s house in the months before the killing, using a car Hernandez rented for him.
McCauley also said Hernandez’s aunt provided financial assistance to Wallace after Lloyd’s death as he made his way south to Miramar, Fla., where his parents live. Wallace later turned himself in to police in Miramar.
Friday’s hearing followed the release of court documents a day earlier that included photos of Hernandez in his home, holding what authorities have said was a gun, both before and minutes after Lloyd’s homicide. The photos came from Hernandez’s home video surveillance system and are among evidence authorities have obtained with search warrants.
Authorities believe Lloyd was killed with a .45-caliber Glock, which they have said hasn’t been recovered. Prosecutors have said that a gun Hernandez is seen holding in the home surveillance appears to be a Glock.
Authorities recovered an ammunition clip for .45-caliber bullets in Hernandez’s Hummer as well as ammunition of the same caliber inside a condo he rented in Franklin, Mass.
Prosecutors this week won a delay, to Aug. 22, for a probable cause hearing for Hernandez, saying they needed more time to present evidence to a grand jury. Hernandez will continue to be held without bail.
In the course of investigating Lloyd’s death, authorities found a vehicle at the home of Hernandez’s uncle in Bristol, Conn., Hernandez’s hometown, that was wanted in a 2012 double killing in Boston, according to the Florida records. It had been rented in Hernandez’s name.
