The jury decided to resume deliberations in the murder trial of Jodi Arias case. On Tuesday, the second full day deliberations of the panel came to an end without reaching a verdict.
Arias was arrested for the allegations of killing her boyfriend Travis Alexander in June 2008. He was found dead with a shot on his head and more than 30 wounds on his body created by stabbing and slashing. The killing took place in Alexander’s suburban Phoenix home. Arias was charged with a first-degree murder.
However, the jurors can also accuse the 32-year-old woman of second-degree murder or manslaughter and punish accordingly. According to the prosecutors, she planned the assault in a jealous frenzy.
Arias’ first response was to deny her involvement in the murder. After that, she made up a story of two masked intruders killing Alexander. She at last admitted murdering him but said that it was an act of self-defense.
The case’s testimony started in early January. From the beginning of early February, Arias spent 18 days on the witness box.
