NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — The Latest on the prison suicide of ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez (all times local):
A lawyer for the mother of the man Aaron Hernandez murdered is asking the New England Patriots to voluntarily give her whatever money the ex-NFL star might still be owed.
Attorney Doug Sheff tells reporters he's issued "a friendly challenge" to the Patriots. Hernandez was a star tight end for the team before he was cut in 2013, the same year he killed Odin Lloyd.
