(Newser) – Aaron Hernandez was arraigned today, and not on anything so tame as the once-rumored obstruction of justice charges. The newly unemployed NFL tight end has been charged with murder and several gun-related charges, the Boston Globe reports. Prosecutors told the court that they have surveillance tape showing Hernandez holding a gun and saying, "You can't trust anyone anymore" before picking up his alleged victim—semi-pro player Odin Lloyd—in a car.

The video also shows the car Hernandez was driving at the location where the body was found, the prosecutors said. They also claimed to have phone records showing the two had communicated soon before Lloyd's death. Prosecutors believe Hernandez was angry with Lloyd for something he'd said at a Boston nightclub. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty. (Read more Aaron Hernandez stories.)
