(Reuters) - The judge in the capital murder trial of Colorado movie theater gunman James Holmes dismissed a fourth juror on Monday whose brother-in-law was recently victim of a shooting after she became emotional in front of other jurors, the Denver Post reported.

Arapahoe County District Judge Carlos Samour dismissed three jurors last week on the grounds they were tainted by hearing about a prosecutor's message on Twitter.
