PHOENIX (AP) — Another juror has been released from the high-profile Jodi Arias murder trial in Phoenix that now has wrapped up its 14th week.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say Juror No. 11 was excused Friday because of health reasons.

Last week, another juror was dismissed for allegedly making comments about the trial.

That leaves the jury with 10 men and six women. Twelve jurors eventually will be selected at random to decide the fate of Arias.

Arias says she killed her lover in self-defense at his suburban Phoenix home in 2008. Prosecutors say Arias planned the attack in a jealous rage.

She faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder.
