BOSTON (AP) - A second person has been dismissed from the jury deliberating the fate of a man charged with killing four people during a drug-related robbery in Boston.
The judge in the murder trial of Dwayne Moore dismissed the juror on Thursday after learning that the man has a gravely ill relative and has to travel out of state. A new juror will be randomly selected from the two remaining alternates.
The judge earlier this week dismissed a juror for doing independent ballistic research online and sharing it with other jurors.
The 35-year-old Moore has pleaded not guilty to fatally shooting three adults and a toddler in the city's Mattapan neighborhood in September 2010 during a drug-related robbery. A fifth victim was shot, but was paralyzed and is now in a wheelchair.
