The judge on Wednesday said the juror didn’t reveal all the facts when she said she recognized a witness who testified in May. Judge Carlos A. Samour said he didn’t dismiss her earlier because he didn’t have all the information.

That leaves 19 jurors, including seven alternates.

Another juror was dismissed this week after her brother-in-law was shot in an armed robbery. Three others were released last week over concerns they were exposed to media reports and may not have been truthful about it.

The latest juror to be dismissed told the judge on May 6 that she recognized a witness as the parent of a boy who attends the school where the juror works.
