SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - Two jurors have been dismissed from the homicide trial of the second man charged in the murder of a man whose body was found in a sport utility vehicle at the bottom of a northeastern Pennsylvania ravine last summer.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune (https://bit.ly/Th093b ) reports that Lackawanna County Judge Terrence Nealon said the jurors posted on a social media site about their involvement in the trial of 23-year-old Neil Pal.

Nealon said Wednesday that the Facebook posts were “innocuous” and didn’t express opinions, but they still violated court instructions not to discuss the proceedings.

Pal is on trial in the death of 24-year-old Frank Bonacci, whose body was found in an SUV on a ledge above Roaring Brook in July. Twenty-three-year-old Jason Dominick was convicted of third-degree murder last month.
