FILE - In this Oct. 5, 2016 file photo, former New England Patriots NFL football player Aaron Hernandez, left, sits during a status conference in his upcoming double murder trial at Suffolk Superior Court in Boston. The prison death of Hernandez is prompting lawmakers to revisit a centuries-old Massachusetts legal principle. Under a bill heard Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018, by the Legislature’s Judiciary Committee, a person who takes their own life after being convicted of a crime would automatically lose all rights to appeal. Hernandez’s murder conviction in the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd was dismissed after Hernandez was found hanging in his cell last April. (John Blanding, Boston Globe/The Boston Globe via AP, Pool)
