FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — An associate of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to an accessory charge in the case in which Hernandez is charged with murder.

Ernest Wallace of Bristol, Conn., appeared Thursday afternoon in Fall River Superior Court. He was indicted last month on a charge of being an accessory to murder after the fact.

He will continue to be held on $500,000 bail until a bail hearing Sept. 26. His defense attorney asked for time to review the grand jury's minutes.

Police have said Wallace and another man were with Hernandez when 27-year-old Odin Lloyd of Boston was killed June 18. Lloyd's body was found in North Attleborough, not far from Hernandez's home.

Wallace went to Florida after Lloyd's death.

Hernandez is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder.
