Video Shows Aaron Hernandez Dancing Near Gas Pump Before Killing

Hernandez is charged with killing Odin Lloyd in the early morning hours of June 17, 2013

Surveillance video shows former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez putting gas in his rental car and dancing near a pump about an hour before prosecutors say he killed a man.

The video played Thursday in Hernandez's murder trial shows a co-defendant wearing a white towel around his shoulders.

A white towel was found near the body of Odin Lloyd later that day in an industrial park not far from Hernandez's home. Lloyd was shot to death.

Prosecutors haven't said who shot Lloyd but said Hernandez orchestrated the killing.

A bar manager testified Thursday that Hernandez spent the earlier part of the night drinking with a group at a bar in Rhode Island and smoking marijuana outside the bar with one of his friends.

Kelly Rose Belanger testified that Hernandez was with a group of people at the bar she managed on the night of June 16.

She says he went in and out several times with another man. She smelled marijuana and went outside to see them smoking pot. She asked him to stop, and he did.

Hernandez paid the $243 bill and left a $30 tip at around 12:15 a.m. Lloyd was dead around three hours later.

Testimony ended for the day around noon on Thursday due to a witness scheduling issue. The trial will resume on Friday.
