ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) -- Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is due to make another appearance in court in the murder case against him.
 
A probable cause hearing for Hernandez is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in Attleboro District Court. He has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death last month of Odin Lloyd.
 
Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyd's killing because he was upset at him for talking to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub a few days earlier. Hernandez's lawyers say the case against him is circumstantial and he wants to clear his name.
 
Hernandez is being held without bail at a county jail.
 
Two of Hernandez's associates, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, also are facing charges in connection with the case.

    A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée to an NFL executive five months ago, while league executives have insisted they didn't see the violent images until this week. The person played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible."
