Hernandez, a former NFL tight end, was arrested at his North Attleboro home on June 26. He pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and has been held since his arrest.
The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office said Ortiz and Wallace will be arraigned at a later date, which has not yet been scheduled.
