Colleen McKernan: Jury Foreperson Speaks

This is the next interview in a series about Colleen McKernan who shot her husband Rob on New Years Eve, 2014 during an argument. Colleen was tried twice for murder; both times, jurors deadlocked on whether she was guilty of murder or justified in killing Rob to defend herself. This interview is with Patricia--the jury foreperson in Colleen's second trial. On the eve of the third trial, Colleen accepted a plea offer to manslaughter in exchange for a seven-year sentence. The trials took place in Canton, OH in 2016; the plea was in 2017. Patricia shares her own story as well as her experience as a juror in the second trial.
