ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts judge says he will release impounded search warrant materials in the murder case involving former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

Attleboro District Court Judge Daniel O’Shea on Monday said the material will be released at 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Motions to unseal the material were filed by The Patriot Ledger and Taunton Gazette newspapers and their parent Gatehouse Media, supported by The Associated Press, and by The Boston Globe.

Prosecutors and Hernandez’s defense attorney had opposed releasing the material. District Attorney Samuel Sutter said Monday he would not appeal the judge’s decision.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the June 17 fatal shooting of Odin Lloyd of Boston. Lloyd’s body was found in an industrial park near Hernandez’s North Attleborough home. Two other men are facing lesser charges.
