Stevens trial judge orders juror to explain herself to the court

The federal judge who presided over the Senator Ted Stevens trial has ordered a missing juror to explain herself to the court.  Judge Emmet Sullivan will hold a hearing in Washington DC Monday morning to hear from a woman known as “juror number four.”  She sat through the entire Stevens trial and was part of the deliberating jury.  But she disappeared on the third day of deliberations to attend her father’s funeral.  The court gave her permission to leave, but expected to be able to reach her over the following days.  However, the juror didn’t answer the court’s phone calls and never got back in touch with the judge.
