Jodi Arias jury hangs on whether she should get death penalty - ABA Journal
It didn't take long for an Arizona jury to convict Jodi Arias of first-degree murder in the grisly death of her former boyfriend. But it wasn't able to agree Thursday on whether the 32-year-old should get the death penalty in the Maricopa County case. That leaves the prosecution with two options: Retry the penalty phase of the high-profile case with a new jury or take capital punishment off the table, reports ABC News.

Jodi Arias jurors should be thanked, not threatened | Insiders
Breathe, people. The justice system worked today.
Twelve jurors gave up five months of their lives to decide what to do with Jodi Arias. They couldn't reach a unanimous verdict to sentence her to death.
Someone or a group of someones on this jury believed, based on the testimony they heard, that Jodi Arias should not be executed. They stood their ground and voted as they believed, literally holding this killer's life in their hands.
Just as they voted as they believed, when they found her guilty of first-degree murder.
We shouldn't decry their decision. Instead, we should celebrate the fact that jurors didn't bow to unbelievably enormous public pressure or to the inevitable threats that will come their way, once people find out who they are.
Every one of those jurors did what they believed was right, not what was popular. Would we really prefer to have it the other way around?
Hearts across the country go out tonight to the family of Travis Alexander. The familyÂ should take sola ...
