A judge Thursday allowed Hernandez’s previous attorneys to withdraw and transfer the case to new attorneys. His new team includes Florida attorney Jose Baez, who successfully defended Casey Anthony in her 2011 trial in the death of her daughter.

Hernandez already is serving life in the 2013 killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. He also is accused of gunning down Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after one of the men accidentally spilled a drink on him. He has pleaded not guilty.
