PLYMOUTH, Mass. — Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez is expected to appear in court with new lawyers to defend him in the 2012 slayings of two men outside a Boston nightclub.

The former tight end is already serving a life sentence in the 2013 killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez is accused of gunning down Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after one of the men accidentally spilled a drink on him. He has pleaded not guilty.

Florida attorney Jose Baez — who successfully defended Casey Anthony in her 2011 trial in the death of her daughter — and Harvard Law School professor Ronald Sullivan are now representing Hernandez.
