According to the Associated Press,  prosecutors believe they have evidence that the fiance of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez lied to a grand jury.  They believe she discarded a box at the request of Hernandez.

In a filing Tuesday in Fall River Superior Court, the prosecution listed more than a dozen instances in which it says it has evidence contradicting Shayanna Jenkins’ testimony to the grand jury investigating the 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd.

Jenkins has pleaded not guilty to perjury. Defense attorney Janice Bassil has moved to dismiss the charge. A message left Wednesday for Bassil seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned.

A judge had ordered the additional information turned over following defense complaints.
