Judge in Colorado theater shooting trial dismisses 3rd juror

CENTENNIAL, Colorado (AP) -- Three jurors in the Colorado theater shooting trial have now been dismissed amid concern that they violated orders not to talk about news reports about the case.

Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr. on Tuesday first dismissed two jurors, including a woman who says her husband called her and told her about a tweet about the case from the district attorney

The judge then decided to dismiss a third juror who might have heard discussion about news reports on the case.

The issue came to light earlier Tuesday when a fourth juror told Samour that she heard a juror talking about the trial on two previous occasions.
