Bust out the schadenfreude flavored popcorn, because round two of the Jodi Arias sentencing is about to begin!!
Convicted in May of brutally slaying her former lover, Jodi's previous jury couldn't return a unanimous decision whether or not her life should be spared.
Maricopa County prosecutor Bill Montgomery will now be asking a new jury of her peers to dole out justice by, you know, lining the convicted murderer up in front of a firing squad.
Well, not a firing squad, per se — Arizona's only sanctioned form of capital punishment is lethal injection.
Attorney Bill spoke sparsely about his prosecutorial decision. He said:
“At this point, we are still preparing to move forward to retry the penalty phase.”
The new jury will convene on July 18th.
If they deadlock, Judge Sherry Stephens would then be forced to sentence Jodi to either "life in prison, or 25 years with the eligibility of parole."
