A man prosecutors say was with Aaron Hernandez the night the former New England Patriots tight end's friend was killed has been held on $500,000 cash bail.

Ernest Wallace appeared Friday in Attleboro District Court on a charge of being an accessory to murder.

His lawyer argued that Wallace was not a flight risk and wanted to return to his family's home in Florida. Attorney David Meier sought bail of $10,000.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's home. He was shot five times.

Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyd's killing because he was upset at him for talking to people Hernandez had problems with.
