Jurors in Jodi Arias case to resume deliberations Thursday

PHOENIX (AP) - The jury in the Jodi Arias case will deliberate for a sixth day over whether she should be sentenced to life in prison or death for killing her lover nearly seven years ago.

Jurors went home Wednesday without delivering a verdict.

Earlier this week, Arias' attorneys said jurors were at an impasse, but the judge denied a mistrial request.

Arias was convicted of murder in 2013 after a lengthy trial that became a sensation with its tawdry revelations about her relationship with victim Travis Alexander.

That jury deadlocked on her punishment.

If the case's current jury can't decide on a sentence, the death penalty would be removed as an option and the judge would decide if Arias serves life in prison or gets a chance for release after 25 years.
