FALL RIVER, Massachusetts — Testimony at a hearing for Aaron Hernandez enters its third day as lawyers seek to have some evidence in his murder case tossed, including from a cellphone and home surveillance system.

The defense says the ex-New England Patriot was unlawfully questioned when state police investigating Odin Lloyd's killing executed search warrants at Hernandez's home.

They maintain he wasn't free to leave. He has said he felt "helpless" and worried about his family. Hernandez had earlier referred questions to his attorney.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the 2013 death of Lloyd, who was dating Hernandez's fiancee's sister.

A trooper testified Wednesday Hernandez didn't seem frightened or raise concerns during the searches and said he could have left. Some testimony Thursday focused on whether Hernandez was asked where his phone was.
