Testimony in the Aaron Hernandez double murder trial is expected to resume Thursday after the judge ordered a Wednesday morning break due to illness in the jury.

Michael Haag, a shooting reconstruction expert, testified about the trajectories of the five bullets police were able to account for in the double murder. The shots were fired, the commonwealth alleges, by Aaron Hernandez and into a car stopped next to his vehicle at a red light.

Haag said that the evidence pointed to five bullets, but that, in theory, more than five bullets could have been fired.

Defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden pointed out that someone sitting in the back seat of the car had an apparent “graze wound.” She asked whether it could have been caused by a sixth bullet.

Haag said that while it was possible a sixth bullet had been fired, and while it was possible that a sixth bullet could have caused the “graze wound,” it was also possible that the wound was caused by a fragment missing from another bullet which also passed through the vehicle’s headrest. He said it was also possible that the so-called “graze wound” was caused by broken glass.

The Hernandez defense team has asked multiple witnesses whether more than five bullets could have been fired. Some eyewitnesses testified hearing more than five shots fired. Police only recovered forensic evidence of five bullets.

Any additional bullets beyond five left no forensic evidence in this case, the commonwealth countered.

Judge Locke said at the conclusion of testimony Wednesday that he expected the commonwealth’s case to wrap on Thursday or Friday.
