Just weeks after being found guilty of murder in Bristol County, Massachusetts, former NFL player Aaron Hernandez will face a wrongful death lawsuit from the victim’s family, according to NY Daily News. Ursula Ward, the mother of shooting victim, Odin Lloyd, filed the lawsuit in 2013, and despite publicly forgiving Hernandez, has decided to proceed with the suit. Hernandez is also facing murder charges in Suffolk County for the alleged ambush killing of two men. The families of those victims, and a former friend that claims Hernandez shot him in the face during a dispute in South Florida, are suing him, as well. The New England Patriots, with whom he signed a $40 million contract in 2012, formerly employed Hernandez.
