Lawyers for convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez requested Tuesday that a judge invalidate a search warrant related to a 2012 double murder in Boston for which Hernandez also stands accused.
Connecticut police used the search warrant to seize a Toyota 4Runner prosecutors say Hernandez was driving when he shot Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after an incident at a Boston nightclub. Hernandez’s lawyers say police relied on information from Carlos Ortiz — who allegedly was in the car with Hernandez — in order to obtain the search warrant, but they neglected to include the fact that Ortiz failed a lie detector test.
The vehicle was discovered at the home of Hernandez’s uncle in Bristol, Connecticut, while police were...
FOXBORO — Clete Blakeman will work as the referee for Patriots-Cowboys on Sunday, according to Footballzebras.com.
Blakeman has a bit of a history with New England — he was the lead official in last year’s Patriots-Panthers game where a disputed pass interference call at the end of regulation sealed a New England loss, one that caused quarterback Tom Brady to follow Blakeman off the field, cursing much of the way.
He was also the alternate official for the 2014 AFC title game between the Patriots and Colts, and is mentioned prominently in the Wells Report as the official who took the air pressure measurements in the footballs before the game.
Here’s a look at who has worked as the lead official for each New England game this year, and the corresponding penalties for each game, not counting the flags that were offset or declined.

Claude Julien wouldn’t say Tuesday morning whether the Bruins would send recently waived goaltender Jeremy Smith to Providence. He would only say that Smith wouldn’t be with the Boston club.
His phrasing made a little more sense Tuesday evening, as the B’s announced that they had loaned Smith to the Iowa Wild, the AHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild.
Though it’s been a surprising few days for Smith, who was expected to be Tuukka Rask‘s backup this season, his assignment to another AHL team under this week’s circumstances makes sense given that Boston already has Malcolm Subban and Zane McIntyre in Providence. Jonas Gustavsson, who came to Bruins camp on a tryout, was signed to a one-year...
In wake of a report out of Miami that ex-Dolphins coach Joe Philbin had to tell practice squad players to go easy on Ryan Tannehill, a former Patriots player has come out and said Tom Brady is the exact opposite.
Former Patriots wide receiver Donte Stallworth tweeted: Brady actually paid practice squad and look team guys if they picked him off in practice early Tuesday morning.
Stallworth followed it up with: But comparing Tannehill to Brady is like comparing a rowboat to a battleship.
