Maricopa County Bill Montgomery released the following statement Thursday following the mistrial ruling in the penalty phase of the Jodi Arias trial.
It has not been altered in any way.
“We appreciate the jury’s work in the guilt and aggravation phases of the trial and now we will assess, based upon available information, what the next steps will be. As of this point in time, the Court has set a Status Conference for June 20 and we will proceed with the intent to retry the penalty phase. Because, for purposes of a jury determination on punishment, this is still a pending matter, there will be no further comment.”
