Just four days into the trial of a Manhattan nanny accused of butchering two children, a juror has already been booted.
Juror No. 8 was bounced from the high-profile murder case Tuesday after complaining at least twice that he did not think he could be fair.
Baby-sitter Yoselyn Ortega is accused in the savage slaying of 6-year-old Lulu Krim and her little brother Leo, 2, inside their Upper West Side home on Oct. 25, 2016.
Details surrounding the juror's dismissal were not shared in court, but had something to do with his wife, a former Administration for Children's Services employee who now works at a children's charity.
"You can't will a wife to be quiet and stay out of his head!" Ortega's attorney Valerie Van Leer-Greenberg could be heard saying after a bench conference with the judge and the juror.
The Hamilton Heights man, a father of two, told the jurist and lawyers that he could not continue after seeing gory crime scene photos and hearing the testimony of a crime scene detective.
"Since you can't guarantee that you can be fair in and impartial in this case, the parties have agreed to let you go," Justice Gregory Carro told the panelist.
"I wish you would have thought about this prior to being selected as a juror," he added.
The man declined to talk when reached by phone.
"I'm not speaking to you about the case," he said.
He is being replaced by an alternate juror, an investment banker who lives in Harlem.
