The first-degree murder trial of Mark Hutt in the death of his wife Donna Jones was a heart-rending experience for family and friends of Jones, but also took a toll on other people in the courtroom.
Hutt was accused of scalding his wife with boiling water and then leaving her to die in 2009. He was found guilty of first-degree murder on June 7.
CBC Ottawa producer Karen Soloman was a juror in the trial and spoke about her experience Friday on Ottawa Morning and in a one-on-one interview with Lucy van Oldenbarneveld on CBC TV News starting at 5.
She also took questions about the trial, the experience and how her views on jury duty changed. You can replay the chat anytime you like by clicking below.
A note about the chat: It's a criminal offence for jurors in Canada to disclose their discussions during deliberations, or to disclose any discussions with fellow jurors outside of deliberation.
Karen didn't answer any questions that touched on those subjects.
