The jury deliberating the fate of former actor Lillo Brancato Jr. must start over, because one juror was removed. According to the AP, "It was discovered a juror had been taking notes during testimony and doing research on the case at home." Brancato is on trial for killing an off-duty police officer in the Bronx. Earlier today, it was reported that the jurors asked to review evidence, including a 911 the slain cop, Daniel Enchautegui, made before his death. The victim's sister said of Brancato, "You have no idea how much I'm sick of seeing that guy. I can't take this anymore. He's smiling and laughing."
