NORMAN — A Massachusetts judge has unsealed information from arrest and search warrant records obtained by law enforcement officials in their investigation of Aaron Hernandez, former star receiver for the New England Patriots, on murder and firearms charges.

Bristol District Judge Daniel O’Shea ordered the records made public at 3 p.m. today. They could reveal further details about what authorities found a month ago when they searched Hernandez’s home, a nearby apartment he rented and his motor vehicles.

Hernandez, 23, is charged with first-degree murder in the June 17 shooting death of Odin Lloyd, 27, of Boston. He also has been charged with illegal possession of firearms, and is the subject of a grand jury investigation into a drive-by double murder in Boston a year ago.
