FALL RIVER, Mass. (CN) - Though she said it was Aaron Hernandez who had her remove a box from their house the day after Odin Lloyd was found dead, the former football star's fiancee gave up little else otherwise in the murder trial Monday.
"I don't know," "I don't recall" and "I don't remember" were among the most common refrains for Shayanna Jenkins.
Once, she replied, "I want to say yes and no. I'm not sure."
Jenkins took the stand as part of an immunity deal with prosecutors on charges that she lied to the grand jury and disposed of evidence that allegedly tied her former Patriots tight end beau to Lloyd's June 2013 murder.
It was Jenkins and her sister, Lloyd's girlfriend at the time of his death, who introduced the two men.
Testifying Monday, Shayanna gave life to the shiftiness that her sister, Shaneah Jenkins, had described to jurors last month.
The prosecution played footage from her home-security camera and showed her photos, phone bills and receipts, but nothing could help Jenkins recollect certain information from the day after the bullet-ridden body of her sister's boyfriend was found in an industrial park less than a mile away from Hernandez's home.
Shaneah had told jurors that she went to her sister's home for comfort that day but found Shayanna acting "secretive," repeatedly taking phone calls in another room.
Shayanna could not recall Monday who was on the other end of those calls. "I assume it was Aaron," she said.
Phone records show that he called her several times that day, but Shayanna could not remember what they spoke about or why her home-security footage shows that she kept going to the basement when he called.
Prosecutors played footage of Jenkins leaving her house through the backdoor with a box wrapped in a black plastic bag and covered with baby clothes.
Asked why, the fiancee said she did it so as to "not expose" the contents to anyone, but no one in specific. She was just "in general" trying to keep private the box that Hernandez said was "important" for her to remove.
While leaving with the box, which she never looked inside of, Jenkins went to get "baby stuff" and go to an ATM, she said, unable to remember the order in which she ran the errands.
Jenkins named three possible cities where she could have left the box in a "random dumpster." She did not know where she bought the diapers with which she later returned home, and she was "uncertain" as to why she withdrew $800 from an ATM that day.
It could have been to pay the house cleaners, Jenkins said, before prosecutors produced a copy of a check Jenkins wrote that day for the house cleaners. She had no other plausible explanation as to why she needed the money.
