   FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is due back in a Massachusetts court for the first time since being arraigned on a murder charge.

   A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in Fall River Superior Court.

   Hernandez was indicted in August in the killing of 27 year old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend.

    He pleaded not guilty to murder and five weapons-related charges last month. His attorneys agreed then that he continue to be held without bail but reserved the right to seek it later. The defense says the state will not be able to prove its case during a jury trial.

   Four others, including Hernandez's girlfriend and cousin, are facing charges in the case.

   BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The federal  say a rare amoeba that caused the August death of a child in south Louisiana has been found in five locations in a north Louisiana water system.

   The state Department of Health and Hospitals said Tuesday the CDC confirmed the presence of the Naegleria fowleri amoeba in five places in DeSoto Parish Waterworks District No. 1, which is one of 14 water systems in the parish.

   State health officials say there are no known current cases of illness related to the discovery in DeSoto or elsewhere in Louisiana.

   The water system said it will begin a free chlorine burn in the system Wednesday to last for 60 days.

   DHH began testing the DeSoto system as a precaution after St. Bernard Parish's water system tested positive. DeSoto was the site of one of two 2011 amoeba-related deaths in Louisiana.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Three people convicted of murder in deadly crashes want New York's highest court to throw out their convictions, arguing they were too intoxicated to know the threat to others.

The Court of Appeals heard arguments Tuesday from the attorneys for Martin Heidgen, Taliyah Taylor and Franklin McPherson.

Heidgen killed a limousine driver and a 7-year-old passenger in a wrong-way crash on Long Island's Meadowbrook State Parkway in 2005. His blood alcohol content was 0.28 percent.

Taylor sped 80 mph down a Staten Island street without headlights, ran a red light and killed a pedestrian. She had taken Ecstasy, smoked marijuana and drank beer.

McPherson drove the wrong way on Long Island's Southern State Parkway in 2007 and killed another driver. His BAC was 0.19 percent.

Rulings are expected next month.
