PHOENIX (AP) — An Arizona judge has denied a defense motion to dismiss a notice by prosecutors that they intend to seek the death penalty against Jodi Arias, who was convicted in the 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens issued the ruling late Wednesday afternoon.

Arias was convicted in 2013 of killing Travis Alexander. But jurors deadlocked on whether she should be sentenced to life in prison or death.

A new jury was picked to decide her sentence, and her sentencing retrial is ongoing.

Arias’ lawyers had argued that authorities destroyed computer evidence that would have benefited their client.

The reason I want Jodi to get the death penalty is that, if she gets life in prison, she will continue to get all of her perks that she gets now, like special treatment, drawing and painting her pictures for sale and free reign of the prison…If she gets the death penalty, she will be in a cell by herself and no more special treatment…I know she will never be put to death, which she deserves, but she can spend the rest of her days by herself to think about what she has done ! !…JUST SAYING >>>>>

I totally agree with you! It’s just that tax payers are paying out for this trial, and time spent in a place where the old folks would be treated better. As you saw my 2nd writing (my 1st one is a mess) Just order the needle already. These days off are really putting stress on the family of the victim that could be prevented as well as that judge taking 5 days to decide on that death penalty! What the heck was that. That evil b—- (I am being nice!) stabbed, shot and performed a cut throat situation! I can’t believe that judge took so long to decide on the death penalty. I am usually against it, but the victim’s death was worse and full of torture.

What are the similarities between a brand new grocery sack an Jodi Arias?
They both are unholy bags!

I almost had a major melt down over this! Just to think that the defense wants to take justice (the death penalty in this case) off the table and the judge taking this long to think about it! I hope and pray that somebody understands that the amount of extreme emotional stress was added on top of what the Alexander family is currently going through could have been prevented! There was no need to make the trial longer without saying that the death penalty will remain! There were about 5 days of preventable stress for the Alexander family! That decision could have come sooner! GRRRRR! That is inhumane! Just get the needle and jam her with it already!
