BOSTON (AP) — The New England Patriots' attorney says 34 text messages between coach Bill Belichick and former tight end Aaron Hernandez were provided to Massachusetts prosecutors investigating a 2013 killing in which Hernandez is charged.

Andrew Phelan said Friday it's important to clarify the material listed in court documents this week as 33 pages of texts. Phelan says he doesn't know how the texts between December 2012 and April 2013 were displayed.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the killing of semi-pro football player Odin (OH'-dihn) Lloyd, whose body was found near Hernandez's North Attleborough home.

The messages were on a list of discovery documents prosecutors gave Hernandez's attorneys. Also listed were statements Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft gave police.

Hernandez also has pleaded not guilty to killing two other men in 2012.
