Arraignment date set for Hernandez associate Ernest Wallace

An arraignment date has been set for an associate of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez who has been charged in connection with the death of a 27-year-old semi-pro football player.

The Bristol County District Attorney's office said Friday that Ernest Wallace is scheduled to appear in Fall River Superior Court at 2 p.m. Thursday.

Wallace was indicted last month on a charge of accessory to murder after the fact in connection with the June 18 killing of Odin Lloyd in North Attleborough.
