Aaron Hernandez's girlfriend accused of destroying evidence

Shyanna Jenkins, the girlfriend of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, appeared in front of a Bristol court today after being indicted on perjury charges and we are learning some details of what exactly Jenkins is being accused of.

According to reports, Jenkins is accused of destroying evidence that connected Hernandez to the shooting of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.

From the Boston Globe:

[ADA] Bomberg said that at the request of Hernandez on June 18, a day after Lloyd’s murder, Jenkins went to the basement of the couple’s home in North Attleborough, collected a box, put it in a black plastic bag, covered with baby clothes, and then, using her sister’s car, tossed the box in a dumpster.

When questioned at the grand jury hearing about her actions, Bomberg said, Jenkins testified she had no memory of where she went, or where she tossed the box away.

On top of destroying evidence, Jenkins has reportedly lied to police.

Jenkins is scheduled to be back in court on November 6 and it sure isn’t looking good.
