Aaron Hernandez GUILTY OF 1ST DEGREE MURDER 'Life In Prison'

Aaron Hernandez has just been found guilty of 1st degree murder in the killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd ... and has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Several people inside the courtroom began crying as the verdict was read ... including Aaron's fiancee and mother.

As the verdict was read, Hernandez was shaking his head in disbelief.  At one point, Hernandez turned to his fiancee and mouthed the words, "Be strong."
25-year-old Hernandez -- a former superstar tight end for the New England Patriots -- killed Lloyd on June 17th, 2013.  Lloyd was shot 6 times.
Aaron was also found guilty of illegal gun possession and illegal ammunition possession.
After sentencing in the Lloyd case, Hernandez will still stand trial in the shooting deaths of two people in Boston in 2012.  That trial is scheduled to begin in May.
