PHOENIX (AP) — Lawyers began individually questioning prospective jurors for the penalty phase retrial of convicted murderer Jodi Arias, the next step in the effort to pick an impartial panel that will determine whether she receives the death penalty or life in prison.

Potential jurors answered questions Monday about their views on the death penalty and whether they can fairly judge the evidence.

One prospective juror was asked about her distrust of psychologists, while another discussed moral objections to the death penalty.

Roughly 175 prospective jurors remain out of an initial group of 400 who were brought in for questioning last week.

The retrial is expected to last into December.

Arias was convicted of murder last year in the 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend in Arizona, but jurors couldn’t agree on a sentence.

The court system in this country is a joke.

   
Jackie Dessis says:

Of all the thousands of inmates, I still do not understand, why? how? is this POS allowed, by this incompetent thing “judge”, to tweet., have a facebook page, sell
“garbage she calls art” while considered “indigent”? heck, she is even allowed to HIRE A PI, all this while the AZ Taxpayers footing hercostly ‘circus trial”?
Isn’t she the first & only CONVICTED MURDERER with so much privileges & power?
And the icing on the cake, is the fact that it is transparent for a blind to see that this judge, jss, is doing all she can & then some, to make sure that this POS gets LWP.
Unless this jury gives her the ONLY sentence, DP, this judge will grant her LWP.
So the CONVICTED MURDERER will get out in a very near future! JMO!

Jodi is a very strong Demon and it will be hard to kill it but just do it.

   
JoeBlow says:

Enough already. Drop this BULLSH*t and let her stay in jail for the rest of her life. That is a worse punishment.

   
lee c fairfax says:

Yes Life is fine but suppose the judge decides on only 25 years? Even with LwoP Jodi will be tweeting, selling stuff , making herself the ‘champion of battered women’, vilifying Poor Travis, getting married, being queen bee of her prison hive and maybe having her own webcast…all from prison. Even with the death penalty she will be in the public eye for years, demanding and getting more privileges. and think of all the appeals DP or LwoP or even 25 years. she will be in the news until she dies. she has set a new precedent for what is allowed from prison.

   
Trish says:

The judge can’t give her only 25 years. The only issue in this trial is life in prison or death penalty.

Once her sentencing is final and she is in prison, instead of being in jail and, as was the case prior to the verdict, presumed innocent, she won’t have as much access to communicate with someone who will put tweets out in her name.

I actually think LWOP is a better punishment for this evil creature. If she were sentenced to death, she wold have opportunities to create another media circus, and she’d probably still be young enough to still have a physical appearance that she would try to use to come across as appealing. I actually think, based on watching her entire trial, that she’d be willing to die young just for the opportunity for one more media blitz with still-youthful looks.

Far better for this evil creature to have decades of seeing her 15 minutes of “fame” retreating in the rearview mirror, with a future of decades of being kept in the cage she belongs in and forced to follow the rules that all the other inmates have to follow (both prison rules and convict-enforced rules).

   
Tina says:

I’m in total agreement. Even with life she will milk every bit out of it. However, What have we really seen or heard from her in the media? I for one have heard NADA! After her sentence in June I stopped following her and nothing has been bantered about her in the national media. She is old news. I can’t even find where to watch the new trial. So if you don’t want to hear you won’t hear. If you are still connected to her you’ll hear everything she wants to spew. Do give her that opportunity. Shut her down by stopping all contact with her.

   
deejim says:

That’s why I want the death penalty ! !…Even if she gets the D/P she will never be put to death, but at least she won’t have all of the privileges she gets now ! !…Why should she enjoy life even if it’s behind bars ? ? ?…JUST SAYING …..
