“It doesn’t feel good. It was a horrible decision to have to make,” said Jennifer Ford who identified herself as Juror No. 3, according to ABC News.
“We were sick to our stomach to get that verdict. We were crying, and not just the women,” she said regarding all 12 jurors.
Juror No. 2, who did not want to be identified by name said in an interview with the New York Times that “I just swear to God … I wish we had more evidence to put her away. I truly do … But it wasn’t there.”
Ford told ABC that prosecutors left key questions unanswered.
“If you’re going to charge someone with murder, don’t you have to know how they killed someone or why they might have killed someone, or have something where, when, why, how? Those are important questions. They were not answered,” she said in the ABC interview.
An alternate juror, who was present for the trial and sequestered along with the serving jurors, said he would have voted for acquittal, too.
