Dwayne Moore jury deliberations suspended after juror calls in sick

Jury deliberations have been suspended for the day in the quadruple murder trial of Dwayne Moore in Suffolk Superior Court because a juror reported that he was too sick to deliberate.

The juror called in sick at 7 a.m. The jury, which has been bused in from Worcester because the defense argued that a Boston jury would not be impartial, never made the trip from Worcester.

Moore, 35, is being tried for a second time in the Sept. 28, 2010 slayings of four people, including a mother with her 2-year-old child, on a Mattapan street. A fifth person was shot in the head and is now paralyzed.

A previous trial against Moore resulted in the acquittal of Moore’s co-defendant and a hung jury in the case of Moore in March.
