Often, when I'm in a conference call, I'm physically located beside other meeting attendees. So I hear their voice twice. Allow me to mute.

IT’s true you can do this. See #4 in this article also posted in the comments by another user (thank you!) https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/9-tips-for-meeting-with-Microsoft-Teams/ba-p/151444
We are leaving the secondary issue open which is asking to mute someone locally vs for the entire meeting due to where people are sitting when participating in a meeting.
@Chip Linthicum sorry, I flagged your answer as "inappropriate" but I'm not sure what that mean, I mean it doesn't respond to the request from the user.
Muting another participant causes his voice to be muted for all participants, not just for you.
What the user requested, and I voted this request as also another identical ticket (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38219560-conference-calls-mute-speaker-locally), is to mute a user voice only on my side, not globally. This is to avoid local echo, i.e. if you are in a meeting together with someone close to you and also people from remote, you don't hear the voice of who is close to you twice (local real voice and Teams voice).

You should be able to mute anyone in a Teams meeting call already. At least as the meeting owner I'm able to individually mute anyone. You have to do this from the participant window and click the 3 'dots' and then select "Mute Participant". You can also Mute all participants.

I recommend this request be closed.
