A relative was on a jury in a Louisiana murder trial. Evidence was video of defendant buying murder weapons (very unusual method of murder) before murder, video of defendant using victim's debit card at bank right after murder, time of murder was definitive because of bizarre manner of death, defendant's DNA all over victim's house, murder weapon, and specific murder spot in house, testimony of two others involved who had already pled guilty to murder, and defendant's video taped and written/signed confession. Defendant later changed his mind and wanted a trial. One woman on the jury claimed that the defendant looked like her son and she could never vote guilty. . Thankfully, the other 11 jurors could and they did. I'm fine with the 10 jurors rule, even though I realize not all cases are so cut and dried.
