OSLO, Norway (AP) — A lay judge in the trial of confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has been dismissed for commenting online last year that the anti-Muslim extremist deserves the death penalty for killing 77 people in a bomb-and-shooting massacre.

Lawyers on all sides on Tuesday requested that Thomas Indreboe, one of the lay judges trying confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik, be dismissed for saying the anti-Muslim extremist deserves the death penalty for killing 77 people in a bomb-and-shooting massacre.

He was replaced by backup lay judge Elisabeth Wisloeff.
