BOSTON (AP) — New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has been added to a list of people who could be called to testify at the double murder trial of former player Aaron Hernandez.

Belichick’s name appeared on a list of possible witnesses filed Tuesday by Hernandez’s defense.

Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels had previously been named as a possible witness.

Hernandez is charged with the drive-by slayings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in Boston in 2012. Prosecutors say Hernandez shot them after one spilled a drink on him at a club.

He has pleaded not guilty.

Jury selection is currently underway with opening statements scheduled for March 1.

Hernandez is already is serving a life sentence for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.
