(Newser) – A man arrested in Connecticut in connection with the murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was being sent to Massachusetts today, as investigators said local officers in Miramar, Fla., arrested a third suspect, Ernest Wallace, early this afternoon. The news came hours after a Connecticut judge ordered Carlos Ortiz turned over to Massachusetts authorities.

Authorities revealed last night that they were seeking Wallace, who they said should be considered armed and dangerous, on a charge of acting as an accessory after Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd's murder. Fox News reports that Wallace turned himself in, per a Miramar police rep. Massachusetts authorities also today announced that they had recovered a car linked to Wallace. Meanwhile, Lloyd's relatives were preparing for his funeral in Boston tomorrow. A relative said the service will be at Church of the Holy Spirit in the city's Mattapan section.

A Hispanic kills an African American, yet this clearly lacks the popularity of the Martin/Zimmerman case even though it involves and NFL all pro. Interesting. The Martin/Zimmerman popularity wouldn't have anything to do with banning guns for self defense, would it?
