A judge today set Aaron Hernandez’s double murder trial for May 28, 2015.

The date could change because Aaron Hernandez’s trial for the murder of Odin Lloyd is in October.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to killing Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after a random nightclub encounter in Boston.

He also pleaded not guilty to killing Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez’s lawyers asked for a gag order because of intense media coverage of the murder case.

“I think it’s incumbent upon all of us to do whatever we can to safeguard Mr. Hernandez’s constitutional right to a fair trial and a jury that has not been poisoned by unfairly prejudicial pretrial publicity,”Attorney James  Sultan said. He argued that a judge in Bristol County, where Hernandez is charged with killing Lloyd, issued a gag order in that case.
