Jodi Arias: Jury Fails To Agree On Sentence

A new jury will be picked to decide the fate of boyfriend killer Jodi Arias as jurors say they have cannot agree on her sentence.

The 12 people who have sat through Arias' five-month trial will be dismissed after telling the judge they cannot agree unanimously on whether Arias, 32, should spend the rest of her life in prison or be given the death penalty.

The jury began deliberating the sentence on Tuesday, and earlier this week had told the judge they were at an impasse. However, they were instructed at that point to continue talks in hope of arriving at a decision.
