ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) - A man who faces a gun charge in the murder case against former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has agreed to remain in jail until a hearing next month.

Carlos Ortiz appeared in Attleboro court Tuesday. A hearing to determine if he is a danger to the community is scheduled for Aug. 14. If he is determined to be dangerous, he can be held without bail for 90 days.

Also Tuesday, a judge is expected to unseal search warrants in the case. News organizations had sought access to the documents, and their request was granted Monday.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the June 17 fatal shooting of Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in an industrial area near Hernandez's North Attleborough home.
