Pa Trial Ends When Juror Faints At The Site Of Blood

The trial for three young men charged with fatally shooting a western Pennsylvania college student during a drug-related robbery ended abruptly when one juror fainted because of a bloody crime scene photo and another remembered knowing one defendant’s relative. An Allegheny County judge ordered attorneys to pick a new jury to hear the charges against the 3.  They’re accused of conspiring to kill a 20-year-old Slippery Rock University student. The juror fainted after seeing a photo showing drops of blood on a linoleum floor. As paramedics removed her, another juror told the judge’s staff she knew the uncle of one of the defendants.
