Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been indicted on murder charges in a 2012 double slaying in Boston.
The indictment was confirmed Thursday by Boston police spokeswoman Neva Coakley.
Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado were shot as they sat in a car in Boston's South End on July 16, 2012.
Police have said they were shot by someone who drove up alongside in an SUV with Rhode Island plates and opened fire.
Boston police wrote in an affidavit there is probable cause to believe that Hernandez was driving a vehicle used in the shooting and "may have been the shooter."
Hernandez is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder in the unrelated death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd in North Attleborough.
Hernandez's lawyers did not immediate respond to messages seeking comment.
