ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A judge has rescheduled a probably cause hearing for former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez to give prosecutors more time to present evidence to a grand jury in their murder case against him.

Hernandez was in court Wednesday for the hearing, but prosecutors said the grand jury is still considering the evidence against him.

Judge Daniel O’Shea has decided to reschedule the hearing for Aug. 22. Hernandez will continue to be held without bail until then.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 in an industrial park near Hernandez’s home. He had been shot five times.
