"Earlier this week, after Arias' was interviewed post-conviction, her attorneys asked to be allowed to step down from the case, but a judge denied the request. Legal experts say the decision was not a surprising one because the attorneys have a conflict of interest with their own efforts to try and save her life while Arias has said she'd rather die."

*******

Wouldn't it make sense that the judge would order a thorough competency evaluation over a long period of time and postpone the sentencing phase?

Last week the story is her attorneys were ready to step down - this week they're ready to call her as a witness to testify on her own behalf. How dumb is that?

The most anticipated part of the penalty phase will be when Arias takes the witness stand, though exactly what she will say remains a mystery. Within minutes of her murder conviction, Arias complicated efforts for her defence when she gave an interview to Fox affiliate KSAZ, saying she preferred death over life in prison.
It wasn't clear whether the prosecutor would use those words against her in court, given some experts say it might not work in his favour aimed at securing a death sentence.
"Jodi Arias has proven herself to be a conniving manipulator so she may be saying something like this to get a reaction from the jury," said San Francisco criminal defence lawyer Michael Cardoza. "She may be hoping the jury says,'We won't give her what she wants, and if she wants death, we're giving her life." '

This has to fall within be the most ridiculously morbid pieces ever written......
It's a sad day when the media tosses around a matter such as life or death as if it's a choice on a dinner menu.
:-(
But like the elephant in the room nobody questions what cult, cult, cult utter nonsense has been is drilled into that young woman's head, as to why she thinks DEATH is "the ultimate freedom".....as if being alive is "hell on earth"?
Was Travis Alexander awarded "the ultimate freedom" as well?
Wonder if anyoone will take the time to read your Lolita defense once the see the poster's name. Surely not. You take every opportunity to try to portray me as an idiot, don't you? I don't c n paste everthing as this nutcase does.

Then it's the responsibility of the prosecution to prove there's not any, by calling witnesses accordingly.

Or possibly the defense will call Dr Samuels and Ms Laviotte to testify again for another month because much of their testimony was indeed that - MITIGATING - as to the reason a defendant murdered to protect herself from an abuser.

Do you recall a couple jury questions were expressly to that topic - victims who murder?

Her final plea: Will Jodi Arias beg for her life?
http://www.hlntv.com/video/2013/05/18/holly-h...

*********
Might anyone wonder where these dumb headlines about her pleading for her life are coming from, anyone who has followed this case knowing on at least two occasions including one very recently where she has stated otherwise, which the prosecution would immediately use to refute her begging? Sensationalized media drama about the life or death of anyone IMO is the ultimate low of a disturbed society......although I can see the ghouls think it's just tickety-boo.

******

"If I am found guilty, I won't have a life ... If I killed Travis, I would beg for the death penalty," Arias told Esteban Flores, a Mesa, Ariz., police detective, in a videotaped interview July 15, 2008.

Arias repeated her desire last week, after her murder conviction. "The worst outcome for me would be natural life. I would much rather die sooner than later," Arias told Fox affiliate KSAZ in a post-conviction interview.

"Longevity runs in my family, and I don't want to spend the rest of my natural life in one place ... I said years ago that I'd rather get death than life, and that still is true today. I believe death is the ultimate freedom, so I'd rather just have my freedom as soon as I can get it."

Jodi Arias witness withdraws because of death threats
By Michael Kiefer
The Republic | azcentral.com
Mon May 20, 2013 7:52 AM

Defense attorneys for Jodi Arias filed a motion for mistrial Sunday after a witness who was supposed to testify as to Arias’ character withdrew because she was being threatened.

Patricia Womack, a friend of Arias, was supposed to testify Friday in Maricopa County Superior Court, but could not because the defense attorneys and the prosecutor spent the afternoon behind closed doors, ostensibly arguing over the defense case.

“However, after returning home Ms. Womack began receiving threats, threats that included threats on her life if she were to testify on Ms. Arias’ behalf,” attorney Kirk Nurmi wrote in the motion.“On May 19, 2013, Ms. Womack contacted counsel for Ms. Arias that she is no longer willing to testify due to these threats. It should also be noted that these threats follow those made to Alyce LaViolette, a record of which was made ex-parte and under seal.”

LaViolette, an expert on domestic violence, testified during Arias’ trial and was subsequently harrassed and threatened by trial watchers who staged a massive defamation campaign against her.

******
So defense witnesses are receiving death threats and the jury who is responsible for conviction is not sequestered.

Makes total sense......only in a reality show!

"Last week, the jury determined that the murder was committed in an “especially cruel manner,” making Arias eligible for the death penalty."

http://www.azcentral.com/community/mesa/artic...

*******
Last week the jury already knew the defendant faced the death penalty - and the public knew that at a hearing in 2009 when the death penalty was originally put on the table Detective Flores blatantly "misinformed" the court as to events which took place because he said the autopsy results revealed the gunshot to the face was first, not last.

Is this latest "the jury decides" supposed to somehow erradicate the fact the lead detective committed possible perjury -- because the jury "voted the death penalty was okay"?

How elementary schoolish!
