Judge James Zagel has removed potential juror No. 134 from the jury because of "hardship reasons" and another issue that he did not disclose. He has replaced her with No. 166, an African-American social worker for a nursing home.
That keeps the likely jury tally at eight women and four men.
Zagel has pushed back the start of opening arguments. Citing his experience working with "hungry jurors," openings will now start at 1 p.m.
He is currently addressing the jurors about their duties.
