Bernie Sullivan, spokesman for Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, said Tuesday that Hernandez will move from the Bristol County House of Correction in North Dartmouth, where he has been for more than a year. Sullivan said the move will follow a Fall River court appearance in the 2013 slaying of former semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd in an industrial park near Hernandez’s North Attleborough home.

Sullivan said Hernandez will either move to the Suffolk County Jail on Nashua Street or the South Bay House of Correction.  A judge ruled Monday that Hernandez can move closer to his Boston-based lawyers. He is accused of killing two men in Boston in 2012.
