NORTH PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — The fiancee of imprisoned ex-New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has petitioned a Rhode Island court to add the surname Hernandez to her name, matching their daughter's name.

The Providence Journal says Shayanna Jenkins wore a gold wedding band along with a gold-and-diamond engagement ring on her left hand.

The newspaper says Jenkins appeared Monday in North Providence Probate Court seeking to change her surname to Jenkins-Hernandez. Jenkins lives in North Providence.

A judge says the daughter's name is Avielle Jenkins-Hernandez. The judge says she needs more information before granting Jenkins' request.

Hernandez grew up in Bristol, Connecticut. He's serving a life sentence in Massachusetts for the 2013 killing of Odin (OH'-dihn) Lloyd, who was dating Jenkins' sister.

A prisons spokesman tells The Associated Press there's no record Hernandez has gotten married or requested to get married.
