Aaron Hernandez's girlfriend Shayanna Jenkins has been indicted on charges of perjury.

According to People, a Massachusetts prosecutor announced on Friday that a Bristol County grand jury indicted Jenkins on a single perjury charge in relation to the murder of Odin Lloyd.

Yahoo! Sports reports that Hernandez's girlfriend lied to investigators as they were working on the case. Prosecutors say that Jenkins, along with Hernandez's cousin Tanya Singleton, made "attempts to mislead" the investigation.

Singleton has been indicted on a charge of accessory after the fact, and was previously indicted on a charge of contempt. Jenkins has not been taken into custody, but may be summoned for arraignment.
