Another juror is out at the Thomas Fairbanks murder trial in Crookston. The juror is battling an infection from a cyst near his ear. That leaves 14 jurors, including two alternates. During testimony, a St. Paul Medical examiner described the ravages Deputy Christopher Dewey's body went through in the 18 months after he was shot. The six-foot, two-inch Dewey weighed 250 pounds when he was shot. At his autopsy, his weighed 123 pounds. Fairbanks faces life in prison if convicted.
