The juror booted from the Jodi Arias murder trial is breaking her silence, but only to say she won't be talking about the trial right now.
Juror 5 released a statement saying:
"In the past few days I have been a part of discussion and interest in the murder trial case of Jodi Arias. For the past three months I have been fulfilling my duty as one of the jurors in the case of Jodi Arias. Jodi Arias' attorneys have filed a motion asking for a mistrial or that Juror 5 is removed from the jury, which led to my removal.As a juror that has been removed from the jury, I would like to remind everyone that the murder trial case of Jodi Arias is still going on and that the time and money being invested in this trial are more relevant and important than my removal from the jury.Until the verdict in murder trial case of Jodi Arias is reached I will not make any statements or give any interviews regarding my removal from the jury. I believe that the attention should be focused on the actual trial. I would ask from everyone to please respect my privacy and the privacy of my family."
The juror was kicked off after the defense said she was talking to other jurors and couldn't be impartial.
Court resumes at 12:30 p.m. ET today. Arias claims she killed her ex-boyfriend in self defense.
