    This one is full-on STOOPID. She should be spared the death penalty because she wants to recycle and she'd really like to do some work with domestic violence survivors so that what happened TO HER doesn't happen to anyone else? put this bitch to death already!
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    That poor family. Their lives have been on hold for so many years now. But no matter what the sentence, with appeals it will go on and on for more years. They did get a pre-meditated first degree murder conviction, and I don't believe that will change. She won't ever walk. I hope in time that will give them some degree of comfort.

    They'll probably be a hung over jury tomorrow. I would be, anyway.

    A commenter on CNN was saying that a new jury will to be convened if the prosecutors don't make a deal with Arias for life in prison. Then the appeal process, if the jury rules for DP, will be hell. The sentence probably won't stand anyway.

    Looks like Jodi Arias gets all the drama she ever dreamed of. She's never going away.

    How can a new jury decide life or death when they didn't sit through the trial and hear all of the facts of the case?

    I suggest they bring in the Long Islnd Psychic and consult with the deceased.

    That's exactly the issue everyone is discussing right now. Even if a new jury was...impaneled...(is that the word?) their verdict for the DP (or not) would be thrown out on appeal since they would be a)tainted by media now against instructions by the court b)didn't sit through the trial and render the official verdict.

    The anti-DP folks are saying it was kinda brilliant for Jodi to testify all those long boring days. Makes it harder for a jury to kill her after getting to know her.

    a) you can still find people who live under a rock and have paid no attention to this mess, believe it or not.
    b) a jury doesn't have to sit through the guilt-innocence phase to render a legal sentence. Cases are reversed only on punishment all the time (esp. death penalty), and a new jury hears all the relevant info for sentencing.

    I just heard about this after seeing Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret on Lifetime about 2 weeks ago. I've been fascinated for some reason, and read some stuff online.

    The article says June 1, 2014. Today is the 31st. Anyway...

    Judge: Jodi Arias Can Still Face Death Penalty - ABC News

    A judge denied a motion from Jodi Arias' defense team this week to have the death penalty removed as a sentencing option for the woman whose murder trial became an international sensation.
    Arias' attorneys argued that banning a defense aide from making jail visits last March affected the aide's relationship with the entire defense team and her ability to prepare for Arias' new punishment trial in September.
    Maricopa County sheriff's officials say mitigation specialist Maria De La Rosa was banned for a week after she took a drawing by Arias out of the jail.
    In court documents filed Friday, Judge Sherry Stephens says Arias' attorneys showed no evidence that banning De La Rosa prejudiced the case. There is no proof the incident would impact the ability to present evidence in Arias' penalty phase retrial on Sept. 8, Stephens ruled.
    Defense attorney Kirk Nurmi declined to comment Saturday.
    Arias, 33, was convicted of first-degree murder last year in the 2008 killing of her lover, but jurors couldn't reach a decision on sentencing. The case captured headlines worldwide and became a cable television staple with its tales of sex, lies and a brutal killing.
    She admitted killing Travis Alexander at his suburban Phoenix home but claimed it was self-defense. He was stabbed nearly 30 times, had his throat slit and was shot in the forehead. Prosecutors argued it was premeditated murder carried out in a jealous rage when Alexander wanted to end their affair.
    Stephens previously denied a defense motion in February that the Arizona law allowing a retrial of the penalty phase was unconstitutional.
    Under Arizona law, while her murder conviction stands, prosecutors have the option of putting on a second penalty phase with a new jury in an effort to secure a death sentence.
    If the second panel fails to end in a unanimous decision, the death penalty would be removed from consideration. The judge would then sentence Arias to spend her life behind bars or to be eligible for release after 25 years.

    Hung Jury! Judge Declares Mistrial In Jodi Arias Death Penalty CasePosted on Mar 5, 2015 @ 9:14AM


    Jodi Arias has received yet another reprieve in her wait for ultimate justice. Today in a Phoenix court the judge declared a mistrial after the jury could not reach a unanimous decision.
    Jurors spent more than 26 hours considering four months of testimony. According to the judge, they declared yesterday that they were not unanimous and that votes had been steady since last Thursday. “Jurors have indicated their minds are made up …” the note read. “We are hung and additional time will not change this.”
    Jurors advised this morning that the status was unchanged and the judge declared a mistrial.
    Arias was previously found guilty for the brutal stabbing and shooting death of ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander.
    Prosecutors argued that Alexander’s slaying justified executing Arias, while her defense argued there were mitigating factors — that Arias is a remorseful, mentally ill woman — requiring that her life be spared.
    Much of the testimony was from mental health professionals who examined Arias’ life and her relationship with Alexander. They heard from Arias in a sealed courtroom for two days early in the trial, but she refused to return to the witness stand after the Arizona Supreme Court ruled it must be open to the public.
    The jury that convicted Arias of murder in 2013 was unable to reach a verdict in the sentencing phase, which led to this sentencing retrial.
    Story developing.

    I heard this on the radio on my way home this afternoon. I bet the crime boards are blowing up. Haven't had time to read up on it, but the report I heard said after the second mistrial, it would now go to the judge for sentencing. I haven't followed the case at all since the first trial ended--definitely had enough of it--but I'm wondering if it's the same kooky judge Sherry from the first one. I know Alexander's family wanted nothing less than the death penalty, but I don't see how a judge would rule that way after two juries couldn't.

    eta: saw more info on tv, apparently the death penalty is now off the table and the judge can only choose between life without parole or 25 to life (parole possible) also heard the vote for death was 11-1. One holdout hung the jury.
