FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI/AP) — One of the most interesting moments in the trial of former NFL star Aaron Hernandez didn’t involve testimony in the case.

On Wednesday, during a morning break, Terri Hernandez asked permission from a court officer to touch her son. He said yes, which is when she grabbed her son’s hand and kissed it.

Contact between prisoners and the public is normally not allowed.

Later outside the courtroom, Odin Lloyd’s family had a calm discussion with the court officer saying, they no longer had a son to kiss.

Thursday marks the 30th day of testimony in the Aaron Hernandez murder trial.
