Bashara trial juror talks about the verdict

Bob Bashara received a mandatory life sentence Thursday for his role in his wife Jane's death.

Bashara spoke in court vowing to appeal his conviction, while blaming everyone from the media to the jury.

One of the jurors who convicted him, joined FOX 2 to talk about the case. Juror Regis Johnson said he thought the decision spoke for itself.

"I think he's a narcissist, I think that he would fall into that category as a monster," Johnson said. "I think all of the above."

An 11-week marathon trial took a toll on everyone's lives who worked on the case - including exhaustive testimony, lurid details and the emotional toll of watching a family torn apart.

Johnson called his job a civic duty and said he was glad for the family of Jane Bashara that they find some sort of resolution.

FOX 2's Amy Lange sat in with the round table and said Bashara never wanted to blame everyone but himself and refused to take responsibility for everything.

"I think so many people see right through that," Lange said. "I hope this gives some closure to Jane's family because they have been through so much. His children have lost two parents.

"It's a tragedy anyway you look at it."

Johnson was asked about when the jury was close to reaching a verdict, only to take more time with shouting heard in the courtroom.
