BOSTON (AP) -- Former New England Patriots player and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez is facing another criminal charge: witness intimidation.

Hernandez was convicted last month of killing a man in June 2013. He also faces two counts of murder in Boston, where he's accused of gunning down two men in 2012 after one caused him to spill his drink at a nightclub.

The Suffolk County district attorney's office said Monday that a grand jury indicted Hernandez on Friday. They say Hernandez shot a witness to the Boston killings on Feb. 13, 2013, after the witness made a remark about the killings.

They don't identify the witness, but a former Hernandez friend, Alexander Bradley, has sued Hernandez, saying he shot him on that date in Florida.

Hernandez's lawyers didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
