• More juror misconduct alleged in Fell case
     | November 27,2013

    BURLINGTON — The lawyers for a man facing the federal death penalty for killing a Vermont woman are alleging more misconduct by jurors during the 2005 trial.

    Federal court documents say a Barre man listed as Juror 27 in the trial of Donald Fell answered no when asked if he had ever been charged with a crime, but he was convicted of driving under influence in 1982 and was charged, but not convicted, in a 1981 assault.

    The information is contained in a 411-page amended motion asking the federal court in Burlington for a new trial or a reduced sentence.

    Prosecutors reject the claims.

    Fell was convicted of the 2000 abduction and killing of Terry King, of North Clarendon.
