BOSTON (AP) — Jury selection is underway in ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez‘s second murder trial.

The former New England Patriots tight end already is serving a life sentence with no possibility of parole for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd. Lloyd was a semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.

Hernandez is being tried in the slayings of two other men, both of them fatally shot in 2012 after they left a Boston nightclub.

Prosecutors allege Hernandez was the gunman and went after the pair after one of the men spilled a drink on him at the club.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys began assembling a jury for the latest trial on Tuesday. Opening statements are scheduled to start March 1.

    Wow! What a mess. Hernandez should be used as an example to the young men coming up that aspire to make it big in the NFL or other sport, or in life in general that they should always keep their cool. Don’t get upset over small stuff. Getting upset because some spilled something on you does not constitute murder. His reaction definitely did not match the situation. I am sure his parents had to deal with some anger issues with him while he was growing up. Too bad, such a wasted talent. He could have been part of the Patriot’s Superbowl win this year.
