FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — Lawyers for former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez have agreed to remove personal and religious items before jurors in his murder trial tour his home.

Jurors are scheduled Friday to tour several key sites in the case.

The former NFL player is accused of the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating his fiancée’s sister.

Prosecutors cited the O.J. Simpson case in complaining that Hernandez’s home, still occupied by his fiancée, had been changed to add items that might play to jurors’ sympathies. Simpson’s home was manipulated before jurors in his murder trial visited to add family photos and a Bible.

Friday’s tour also will include visits to the street where Lloyd lived in Boston, the industrial park where Lloyd’s body was found, and four cellphone towers.
