Koklich Jury Must Restart Deliberations

From Times Staff Reports

The jury in the trial of Bruce Koklich, accused of killing his wife, must start deliberations all over today, after a judge excused one juror and replaced him with an alternate. The group had deliberated for five days.

The excused juror had a pre-planned commitment, but the judge, the prosecutor and defense attorney named him to the panel because they thought the trial might be over by Thursday.
