Former New England Patriots star AARON HERNANDEZ has been found guilty of first degree murder in a late night slaying.
The former footballer who once had a $40 million dollar career was also found guilty on both weapons charges, AP reported.
Deliberations lasted for 36 hours over seven days before rendering verdict.
Hernandez was found guilty of killing Odin Lloyd, 27, a landscaper who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancée.
Lloyd was shot six times in the middle of the night on June 17, 2013, in a deserted industrial park near Hernandez's home in North Attleborough, Mass.
The first-degree murder conviction carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
