PHOENIX -- Another juror in the high-profile Jodi Arias murder trial has been dismissed.

3TV’s Mike Watkiss has confirmed that juror number 11 was dismissed Friday afternoon due to health reasons.

Juror 11’s departure leaves 16 people in the jury. Twelve jurors will ultimately get to deliberate in the case.

The Arias jury is enduring its second shakeup in the past several days. Juror number five was removed from the case in early April for reportedly making statements about the case to other jurors.

After being dismissed from the jury, juror number five reappeared in court to observe the trial as a spectator.

Jodi Arias’ murder trial will resume at 1:30 p.m. on Monday.
