Hernandez defense makes its case in double murder trial

BOSTON — The defense is now making its case in the double murder trial of former New England Patriots player, Aaron Hernandez.

Hernandez is charged with killing two men outside a South End nightclub in 2012.

The prosecution rested Monday after calling 61 witnesses.

So far, the defense has called three witnesses -- a strip club manager, a Boston street sweeper and a man who took a photograph with Hernandez just hours before the shooting.

There will be no testimony in the case Tuesday.

The defense plans on calling its final witness Wednesday and the jury could start deliberations by the end of the week.
