The Aaron Hernandez murder case involving the death of Odin Lloyd has mostly been out of the headlines as the judge in the case decides on putting in a gag order or not and as that goes on, Hernandez's girlfriend and fiancé Shayanna Jenkins is scheduled for a pretrial conference on Monday and that will be in Fall River in regards to her perjury charges.

According to the Herald News, Jenkins does not have to appear in court on Monday and the session will have her lawyer and will go over certain issues regarding the case, including the issues regarding the prosecution accusing Jenkins of lying nearly 30 times in her testimony to the grand jury in the case involving Hernandez. Jenkins is 24 years old and is accused of lying to help Hernandez and he is free on person recognizance in the case and the "bill of particulars" describes the instances of her lying, as he said that she did not recall certain things after the events in June that saw Odin Lloyd found dead near her home and her fiancé arrested on charges of his murder.

The rpeort says that the main use stems from Jenkins lying about getting rid of a box for Hernandez that may have contained evidence of the murder, as eh said she did not remember where she disposed of the items. Hernandez is still being jailed on first degree murder charges and a trial could come in late 2014.

From the News: At Jenkins' arraignment, her defense lawyer, Janice Bassil, said the prosecution's case was "an overreach." She said there was no evidence of perjury other than prosecutors not believing Jenkins' answers to the grand jury.
