    Jim Armstrong ✔ @JimArmstrongWBZ
    juror 43: now says his anti-death penalty stance is not "an absolute position" though he questions whether it's useful.

    Jim Armstrong ✔ @JimArmstrongWBZ
    juror 43: i could vote for death penalty in "extreme" situations...perhaps.

    Juror 43 says he doesn't believe in the death penalty but wouldn't say it's an absolute position. @NECN #Tsarnaev

    Alysha Palumbo @AlyshaNECN · 25s 25 seconds ago
    Juror 43: "I could conceive of a situation in which I would go along with it but that situation would have to be extreme" @NECN #Tsarnaev

    Jim Armstrong ✔ @JimArmstrongWBZ
    "I'm not sure if I have the personal constitution" to hand someone the death penalty, #43 offers. #Tsarnaev

    Lana Jones @Lanawbz
    Juror 43 is opposed to death penalty. "I question whether that's the right approach." Conditions would have to be extreme. #tsarnaev

    Alysha Palumbo @AlyshaNECN · 19s 20 seconds ago
    Prosecutor asks if there's a particular situation in mind in which he could impose the death penalty. Juror 43 says no @NECN #Tsarnaev

    Jim Armstrong ✔ @JimArmstrongWBZ
    I'm struck by how many of these jurors are giving thoughtful, deliberative, complex answers to their feelings re: death penalty.

    Alysha Palumbo @AlyshaNECN · 34s 34 seconds ago
    Juror 43:"would struggle with" putting someone to death-his voice cracks as he says "I don't know if I could live with that" @NECN #Tsarnaev

    Jim Armstrong ✔ @JimArmstrongWBZ
    Juror 43: i don't know if i could live with my decision to put someone to death...

    Alysha Palumbo @AlyshaNECN · 33s 33 seconds ago
    Juror 43 on death penalty: "that's the law, I'm willing to consider the law....I don't know if that's the right law" @NECN #Tsarnaev

    Jim Armstrong ✔ @JimArmstrongWBZ
    Court camera guy asks judge to move his seat closer to juror to so he can "be in the shot". Room laughs. #Tsarnaev does not.
