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.

While ABC and Touchstone Television are asking El Lay Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen to grant a verdict in their favor, Sheridan's lawyers are demanding a retrial.

Kirsten Dunst will have to testify again in the case of the accused burglar who stole her $2000 handbag and other property from a Soho Grand hotel suite back in 2007.
She testified last fall, but the jury was deadlocked and the case was sent for a retrial.
James Jimenez, the 35-year-old high school dropout, was convicted of trespassing and felony burglary charges and claimed that he was too stupid to commit a crime. He then later claimed his friend duped him into doing it.
