She reported seeing "two dark black fellas" emerging from a park near her home at 7 a.m. one morning, what she described as an unusual sight.

It brought on fears that the two black defendants might retaliate against her, she told the trial judge, Joseph P. Donohue, during a private conference in his chambers.

"I was concerned about my wellbeing," the juror told the judge. She continued: "It's a case that they're both black, and I'm on the case. And I said, gee, that's funny, you know. I wasn't concerned about it when I first went on the case, but I was wondering if they would stalk you if they're found guilty, whatever, you know, if they would go after any of the jurors."

After reading the article, yeah, the judge should have removed that juror but it had zero effect on the outcome of the trial.

The juror in question should have been removed because she said she feared retaliation by or on behalf of the defendants.
