Juror in Gastonia murder case cites harassment

READ MORE:

GASTONIA, NC (AP) -- A juror in the trial of a man convicted of
killing a University of North Carolina Charlotte student says he's
being harassed.

Mark Bradley Carver was convicted earlier this week in the 2008
death of 20-year-old Irina Yamolenko.

The Gaston Gazette reports that juror Warren Newsom filed a
report with Gastonia police after his wife noticed a sign on a
utility pole near their home that said someone other than Carver
was responsible for the death and promising a fight for justice.

Newsom said he also had received Facebook messages connected to
the case.

Police said they will investigate the reports. Threats or
harassment of jurors is a felony.
