Fall River, MA (CNN) -- Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez -- already charged in the 2013 slaying of a semipro football player -- is expected to be indicted Thursday in connection with a 2012 Boston double homicide, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the case said.

 

A grand jury had been looking into whether Hernandez played a role in the drive-by shooting that killed Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado in July 2012, according to law enforcement sources. Authorities said Abreu and Furtado were in a BMW outside a Boston nightclub when they were shot.

That 2012 shooting is separate from a 2013 killing in which Hernandez, 24, was arrested and charged last summer. Hernandez was arrested in June and charged with first-degree murder and weapons charges in connection with the June 17 shooting death of 27-year-old semipro football player Odin Lloyd in North Attleboro, Massachusetts.

CNN's Susan Candiotti and Laura Dolan contributed to this report.
