FALL RIVER, MA (CNN) - The cousin of disgraced former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez pleaded guilty in court Tuesday.

Tanya Singleton is accused of withholding information from a grand jury to protect her cousin who is charged with the 2013 death of Odin Lloyd.

Prosecutors say Hernandez bought Singleton's silence, but her attorney says she refused to testify out of love for her family.

Singleton is also charged with refusing to testify in a case linking her cousin to two murders in 2012.

Singleton faces possible jail time and two years probation, but she is so sick with cancer both the defense and prosecutor are calling for home confinement.
