Roeder trial's private jury questioning concerns experts

Privacy doesn't guarantee honesty, a jury expert said. Dennis Elias, a psychologist who specializes in jury research, was asked about a judge's decision to question jurors in private about sensitive issues like abortion in the first-degree murder trial of Scott Roeder. Roeder, 51, is charged with killing Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller in the doctor's church on May 31.
