Jodi Arias Jury Hung in Death Penalty Sentencing

The jury in the Jodi Arias trial has ended in a hung decision regarding whether or not to sentence her to the death penalty. Unless the Maricopa Attorney’s office decides to take the death penalty option off the table the case will be headed to a new jury. The problem faced now is in trying to find an impartial juror left after the high profile status of the case in national media.

Jodi Arias Trial set to conclude in just over a week

The murder trial for Jodi Arias, the admitted Arizona killer of ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, continues this week.

Testimony is set to wrap up on Wednesday, May 1, and then closing arguments are scheduled for Thurs. and Fri., May 2 and 3.

The long-running trial has seen Arias take the stand in her own defense, breaking down at the sight of crime-scene photos, listening to and explaining her incredibly NSFW phone sex tapes before the victim’s family, and taking questions directly from the jurors.

Even though Arias admits she shot and repeatedly stabbed Alexander, her claim is that it was done out of self-defense. She has also claimed that she cannot fully remember the crime and that the fateful day was an “anomaly.”
