NORTH ATTLEBORO. Mass. (WPRI) - In an extradition hearing on Monday for a third suspect in the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, Ernest Wallace waived his right to contest rendition to Massachusetts.
According to District Attorney Sam Sutter's office, the office has ten days to take custody of Wallace and bring him back to Massachusetts where he is expected to face a criminal charge of accessory to murder-after the fact.
Last weekend, Wallace was held without bond in Florida, after turning himself in on Friday. He's accused of being an accessory after the fact to murder in connection with the June 17 death of Odin Lloyd of Dorchester. Lloyd was laid to rest Saturday in Mattapan.
The CBS affiliate in Miami reports the 41-year-old Wallace had a brief bail hearing Saturday morning in Broward County after he turned himself in. Police had issued a warrant for his arrest and a car with Rhode Island registration.
Wallace will be formally arraigned in Attleboro District Court.
Former Patriots' tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged Wednesday in Attleboro District Court with orchestrating the execution style killing of Lloyd. He remains in a Bristol County jail.
A Bristol County House of Corrections spokesman told Eyewitness News that Hernandez will be moved from his 7 by 10 cell in the prison's medical facility to another part of the Dartmouth jail.
On Friday, Carlos Ortiz was arraigned in Attleboro District Court and pleaded not guilty to charges of carrying a firearm without a license. He was held without bail.
Hernandez is also being investigated in connection with a 2012 double-homicide in Boston; investigators told WBZ-TV that Lloyd may have had information on those murders.
