FALL RIVER, Mass. >> The murder trial of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez was postponed Monday with weather forecasters predicting a major snowstorm for the region.

The trial is to resume Tuesday. Hernandez is charged in the shooting death of friend Odin Lloyd. He maintains his innocence.

The defense tried to undermine police handling of the evidence and the investigation in general.
