Aaron Hernandez found not guilty in double murder trial

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been found guilty of unlawful possession of a gun.

He was acquitted Friday of all other charges in a Boston double slaying prosecutors say was fueled by his anger over a spilled drink at a nightclub.

Hernandez wept quietly in court after the jury announcement acquitting him of murder, armed assault with intent to murder and other charges.

Prosecutors said Hernandez opened fire on a car carrying two men because he felt disrespected when one of the men bumped into him and spilled his drink.

Hernandez has denied killing them men.

He’s already serving life in prison in the death of a man who was dating his fiancee’s sister.
