Jury Deadlocks On Jodi Arias Sentencing

A jury considering a sentence for Jodi Arias, convicted earlier this month in the brutal murder of her one-time boyfriend, Travis Alexander.

Arias, 32, faces a possible death sentence on her first-degree murder conviction.

According to The Associated Press "a new panel likely will be seated to try again to reach a decision on a sentence — unless the prosecutor takes death off the table [and] agrees to a life sentence."
