Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez’s girlfriend was indicted for perjury Friday in connection with the football player’s first-degree murder trial.

Shayana Jenkins was indicted on a single count of perjury relating to the investigation of the murder of Odin Lloyd, the Associated Press reports. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to first degree murder, and is currently being held without bail.

Lloyd was found shot to death on June 17 in North Attlebrough, Mass. He was also allegedly dating Jenkins’ sister.
