FALL RIVER, Mass. - Jury selection in the murder trial of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez resumed Monday for a second day, as hundreds more prospective jurors filled out questionnaires that lawyers will use to help narrow down the jury pool.Bristol County Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh was bringing in three groups of jurors per day for the first phase of jury selection, which was due to end Tuesday.Each group heard the same thing: The clerk read the charges against Hernandez, then Garsh introduced prosecutors, the defence team and Hernandez, discussed the important role that jury service plays in a democracy and described the crime Hernandez is accused of — killing Odin Lloyd on June 17, 2013. She told jurors Hernandez has pleaded not guilty and denies the charges. The clerk then swore in prospective jurors before they begin filling in the questionnaire, which has not yet been publicly released by the court.Prosecutors say Hernandez, 25, and two friends, Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace, picked up 27-year-old Lloyd at his home in Boston and took him to an industrial park in North Attleborough near Hernandezs home, where he was shot to death. They have not said who pulled the trigger but say Hernandez — then a Patriots tight end with a $40 million contract — orchestrated the crime. Lloyd, a semiprofessional football player, was dating the sister of Hernandezs fiancee.Starting Wednesday, lawyers will go through more than 1,000 completed questionnaires to determine which prospective jurors to excuse. After that, the second phase will begin: individual questioning by the judge. Eighteen people will be selected as jurors, including six alternates.No cameras are allowed in the courthouse during jury selection, but they will be allowed at trial.Prosecutors previously said they expect the trial to last six to 10 weeks, although Garsh told prospective jurors Monday that the lawyers would be meeting in the next few days to determine the length of the trial.Opening statements are not expected to begin until at least Jan. 20.

The Premier League champions turned down an approach from Everton, who are now managed by Ronald Koeman and bouyed by significant investment from new owners, over the weekend.Walsh was responsible for heading the recruitment team that unearthed players such as Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and NGolo Kante, leading to inevitable reluctance to lose him to another club. Walsh agreed and signed a new contract with Leicester in May but the clubs have now agreed compensation after Walsh expressed a desire to move closer to his family in the Noorth West, and final legal details are now being addressed.ddddddddddddWalsh has been at Leicester since November 2011 and widely praised for setting up one of the best player recruitment departments in country.Sky sources understand his new, improved contracts reflected that success and it is this ability that has attracted Koeman, who wants to setup a recruitment department similar to the one he had with Ross Wilson at Southampton.
