Aaron Hernandez jury loses another juror

Another juror was dismissed by the judge presiding over former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez's murder trial.

Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh said it was for personal reasons.

"That was for reasons that were entirely personal to that juror," Garsh said. "It has nothing to do with this case."

Last week, Garsh dismissed a juror who had discussed the case in detail and said it would be difficult to convict Hernandez without a murder weapon. The weapon used to kill Odin Lloyd has never been found.

Court resumed Wednesday after two cancellations this week due to wintry weather.

Meanwhile, the court is trying to compel Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, to testify against him by granting her immunity or she could face time.

According to the Associated Press, Jenkins sat behind Hernandez and the two smiled at each other and Hernandez complimented her hairstyle and she laughed. Hernandez said "I love you" to Jenkins.
