Juror thrown out in homicide, child abuse trial against Heather Jensen

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A judge has removed one of the jurors in the trial of a mother accused of killing her two sons.

The judged removed the unidentified juror on Friday when he found out she added a witness from the trial as a friend on Facebook. A reserve juror will take her place.

Investigators say Heather Jensen's 2- and 4-year-old sons died in November 2012 when she left them in her SUV with the motor running and the heater on while she had sex and smoked marijuana in another vehicle nearby.

She is charged with criminally negligent homicide and fatal child abuse.
