BOS­TON — Lawyers for the mother of a man Aaron Her­nan­dez was con­victed of killing won’t be al­lowed ac­cess to his brain, blood and urine sam­ples in sup­port of her wrong­ful death suit against the for­mer NFL star’s es­tate.

At­tor­neys for Ur­sula Ward — the mother of Odin Lloyd — had asked a judge to or­der the preser­va­tion of the tis­sue and fluid sam­ples gath­ered by the au­topsy for their own ex­perts to ex­am­ine.

The Bos­ton Her­ald re­ports a judge de­nied the re­quest this week, say­ing Ward’s lawyers did not ad­e­quately ex­plain why Her­nan­dez’s phys­i­cal con­di­tion when he died was rel­e­vant to the is­sues raised in Ward’s law­suit.

Her­nan­dez killed him­self in prison on April 19. He was serv­ing a life sen­tence for killing Lloyd in June 2013.
