After being convicted of a 2013 murder, former NFL star Aaron Hernandez is on suicide watch, TMZ reports. He has been transported to MCI Cedar Junction where he would remain until he is transferred to prison.
The 25-year-old is reportedly in isolation not only because he is a famous inmate but to also be evaluated and determine where he will stay in prison. How long he will be on suicide watch has not been revealed.
Earlier this week, Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. CNN reports that the former New England Patriots tight end will be transferred to the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center, a maximum security prison 40 miles outside of Boston.
