Shayanna Jenkins was indicted for perjury in relation to the Aaron Hernandez murder case back in September. Prosecutors have since accused her of destroying evidence. And now, in court documents, the Bristol County (Mass.) prosecutor provided even more specific details, alleging that Jenkins lied to the grand jury 29 times during the course of its investigation.


Jenkins is Hernandez's fianceé and the mother of his daughter. Per the Boston Globe:

According to prosecutors, however, Jenkins lied about conversations she had with Hernandez when he called her on June 18 from his attorney's office at the firm of Ropes & Gray in Boston and instructed her to remove items from the house, McCauley wrote.

She also lied about why she removed the items, her lack of knowledge of those objects, and how she got rid of them, according to McCauley.

Among Jenkins's other alleged falsehoods was her claim that she had not spoken to Wallace since Lloyd's death; her statements regarding a confidentiality agreement related to their house cleaners; and her claim that she did not speak with Hernandez about the February shooting of Alexander Bradley in Florida.

Bradley is the dude suing Hernandez for allegedly shooting him in the face back in February. Jenkins also allegedly lied about Hernandez's possession of firearms. If convicted, she faces up to 20 years in prison.
