Actually, the fact that he thought about how he might be deported to Fiji prior to killing her seems to negate the "crime of passion" defense. He murdered a young girl...he doesn't deny it. He has had a trial. Unless you can argue that the black jury members would have condoned the killing of the daughter of a football great, I don't really see the point.

The race of the juror's would not have effected the verdict. The defendent confessed to the murder and the evidence that led to the murder charge was clear. If the races of the juror's change in a retrial, the evidence will not be effected. GUILTY OF MURDER!
