Jodi Arias was convicted of first-degree murder in May for the 2008 killing of her one-time boyfriend Travis Alexander, but jurors couldn’t reach a decision on a sentence.
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 reach a unanimous decision, the death penalty will be removed from consideration. The judge would then sentence Arias to spend her entire life behind bars or to be eligible for release after 25 years.
