5:02 am
clearly the judge is not happy here. >> reporter: not at all. just to give you an idea of how serious this is, this juror had been dismissed. the judge brought the juror back into the courtroom, asked the juror if he wanted an attorney because the juror could potentially face contempt or perjury charges. right now there are no charges filed. this matter is still under review. this is all happening in the murder trial of philip chism and his defense attorney immediately asked for any juror who made it through voir dire to be automatically dis dismissed. the jury is the father of a danvers high school student. he told other jurors that and may have told them he attended a vigil at danvers. a question of whether he made comments about the 16-year-old's guilt or innocence. chism is on trial for the rape and murder of colleen ritzer,
5:03 am
chism was one of her students, only 14 years old at the time of his arrest. the judge could have a hearing on this matter this morning. but there's a chance that he won't have the hearing today because what's supposed to happen today is a new set of potential jurors. more that 100 are supposed to appear and begin the process of the second wave of jury selection with questionnaires. meaning the jurors who may have heard these comments will not be back at the courthouse until next week. so that's more likely when we may see a hearing on this but it could happen as early as today with the judge deciding on whether or not this juror is going to face any charges and whether or not those other jurors who may have heard something should be dismissed. live in salem, victoria warren, "7 news today in new england." >> jadiann: chaos on the common. a man and woman are on the run after an attack in the middle of the day.
