Former New England Patriot's tight end,Aaron Hernandez has been denied bail in the murder investigation of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. 

Hernandez, 23, is facing first degree murder charges in the death of Lloyd, who was found slain June 17 only a mile from Hernandez home.

During the bail hearing prosecutors said "the evidence of his guilt in the Lloyd killing is overwhelming."

Hernandez' attorney, Jame Sultan countered by stating, "There is no eyewitness testimony, no indication of direct evidence as who shot Lloyd and who was present."

Judge Renee Dupuis said if the facts were true, the killing was "particularly cold blooded."
