I'm Dead, I Swear!

This must be the most original excuse ever presented to get out of jury duty: a woman being interviewed as a potential juror in Bronx Supreme Court for the cop-slay trial of Steven Armento, who is the alleged accomplice of Sopranos star Lillo Brancato, said she really couldn't serve on the jury because she'd once been a murder victim. Yes, she said she'd once been murdered. I'll give you a minute to think about that.

Apparently her husband had stabbed her last year and she died, but the doctors were able to resuscitate her. But it wasn't the old "I was murdered" excuse that got her out of jury duty... she was actually relieved of serving because the trauma of the attack has given her memory problems.
