The mother of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez says she shared a special bond with the mother of the man her son was convicted of killing.
Terri Hernandez told the Boston Herald that after the verdict was read on Wednesday she smiled and nodded at Ursula Ward, the mother of Odin Lloyd.
Terri Hernandez said it wasn't the first time the two had communicated. At one point during the 10-week trial, she told Ward: "As mother to mother, I'm very sorry. I don't know what happened but I'm very sorry for all this," she said.
She called Ward "a great woman, nice and caring."
When told of what Terri Hernandez said, Ward replied that she said all she will say outside the courthouse when she expressed forgiveness.
