Jury foreman speaks out about Rebert trial

January 30, 2012

Eric Bishop, of Punxsutawney, jury foreman in the murder trial of Steven P. Rebert said the past two weeks he spent listening to testimony for both the
 guilt and penalty phases was quite a learning experience.

BROOKVILLE — A Punxsutawney man who served as the jury foreman in the Steven Rebert double-homicide trial, which concluded late Friday, said the jury became deadlocked while deliberating whether or not Rebert should be put to death.
Rebert was sentenced to life in prison by Jefferson County President Judge John H. Foradora, after the jury could not come to a consensus as to whether or not he should be put to death in the murders of Wayne and Victoria Shugar, both 61, Brockway, who were found shot to death in their home April 12, 2010.
Following Rebert’s sentencing, Eric Bishop, Punxsutawney, jury foreman, said the past two weeks he spent listening to to testimony for both the
guilt and penalty phases was quite a learning experience.
Bishop said one of the toughest aspects of the trial was not being able to speak to his family about any details when he came home at night.
