Grand jurors who indicted former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in a 2012 double murder met 24 times to consider evidence in the case – all but two them after the football star emerged as a possible suspect following another killing.

That detail was among a list of 272 pieces of evidence that prosecutors have turned over to Hernandez’s defense team in the July 16, 2012, killings of Daniel de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28, and the wounding of a third man at a South Boston intersection.

The list was filed with Suffolk County Superior Court by prosecutors Patrick Haggan and Teresa Anderson.

The routine filing, made public on Monday, underscored what had been suggested in other court documents – that the investigation into the murders of de Abreu and Furtado was stalled for months before Hernandez emerged as a suspect after he was implicated in the June 17, 2013, murder of Odin Lloyd, 27, in North Attleboro, Mass.

Hernandez has been indicted in both cases. He faces murder and weapons charges in Lloyd’s death in Bristol County, located in southeast Massachusetts, and murder, assault and weapons charges in the killings of de Abreu and Furtado in Suffolk County, where Boston is located.
