A New Bedford judge ordered the North Attleboro house and other assets of accused murderer Aaron Hernandez frozen at the request of the family of Odin Lloyd, which is suing the former Patriots tight end. Bristol County Super Court judge Richard T. Moses made his ruling Thursday with no objection from Hernandez’s criminal attorney, who asked that the matter be revisited at a later date after Hernandez hires counsel for the lawsuit. As part of the wrongful-death lawsuit, Lloyd’s family also is attempting to block the Patriots from paying Hernandez the $3.25 million the NFL Players Association claims the player is owed, as the family wants the funds to be made available to Lloyd’s estate when the lawsuit is resolved.
