Jodi Arias: Hell Hath No Fury
An Arizona woman was found guilty of murdering her ex-boyfriend in a jealous rage. A jury of eight men and four women convicted Jodi Arias, 32, of first-degree murder on May 8, 2013 after a trial that lasted more than four months and became a media sensation capturing national headlines. However, the same jury was not able to reach a unanimous decision on whether the scorned lover turner killer should be put to death or receive life in prison. Prosecutors have stated they will continue to seek the death penalty and a second sentencing hearing, in front of a new jury, is likely to take place in late 2013 or early 2014. The next hearing is scheduled for September 16. If Arias receives the death penalty, it would earn her the dubious distinction as the fourth woman on Arizona’s death row.
