FALL RIVER, Mass. (WWLP-AP) – Testimony is set to continue on Thursday in the Aaron Hernandez murder trial in Fall River, one day after murder victim Odin Lloyd’s mother took the stand. Ursula Ward, who had left the courtroom in tears on previous days, was told by Judge Susan Garsh not to cry during her testimony Wednesday. Ward retained her composure when shown an autopsy photo of her son, as well as a picture of her son wearing the same clothing he had on the day he was killed.

Meanwhile, court officials released the jury selection questionnaire filled out by a  panelist who was removed from the jury on Tuesday. The woman, noted as Juror 96, wrote she had not expressed any opinions on the case and had attended two Patriots games.
