FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — The girlfriend of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to a perjury charge connected to the murder case against him.

Shayanna Jenkins was arraigned Tuesday in Fall River Superior Court and released on personal recognizance.

A prosecutor says she lied to a grand jury, including about where she disposed of a box Hernandez asked her to “get rid of.” The prosecutor says she repeatedly told grand jurors she couldn’t remember where she threw away the box.

Jenkins’ lawyer says she answered every question asked of her before the grand jury.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-pro football player from Boston.

Jenkins and Hernandez lived together in North Attleborough, Mass., near where Lloyd’s body was found.
