Aaron Hernandez has now officially been implicated in the deaths of three human beings.

The former Patriots tight end was indicted Thursday on two first-degree murder charges stemming from a 2012 Boston drive-by double homicide.

The indictment includes three counts of armed assault with intent to murder, and one count of assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon.

Hernandez already stands accused in the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, who may have known about his involvement in the 2012 case.

But unlike with the Lloyd case, prosecutors say they have the alleged murder weapon, and they have specifically fingered Hernandez as the shooter.

The two victims, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, reportedly encountered Hernandez at a Boston nightclub in July of 2012.

Prosecutors allege that Hernandez followed the men in an SUV, stopped next to them at a stoplight, and fired a revolver multiple times into the victims' car.

Three other passengers in the car survived, and at least one of them appears to have served as a key witness in the case.

Interestingly, Hernandez's passenger that night was allegedly Alexander Bradley, the man who sued him last year for having allegedly shot him in the eye.

What do these latest allegations make Hernandez? An alleged serial killer?

According to one forensic psychiatrist, he sounds more like a rageful gangster than a serial murderer.
