Jodi Arias Avoids Death Penalty For 2008 Stabbing Death Murder of Boyfriend Travis Alexander After Second Jury Mistrial, Lone Juror Prevents the Death Penalty (VIDEO)
MASTER MISTRESS MANIPULATOR JODI ARIAS ESCAPES DEATH PENALTY …
Jodi Arias will not be put to death. For the second time, Jodi Arias, the Black Widow, has escaped death as a jury of her peers was a hung jury and could not unanimously agree that she should be put to death for the heinous stabbing death of her boyfriend Travis Alexander. By an 11-1 decision, the hung jury spared Arias’ life as many of the jurors were angered and hurt that they did not properly do their job as a juror for Travis Alexander or his family. It would appear that Jodi Arias will be sending a thank you note to the lone juror for the rest of her life. Now that a there has been a second hung jury, according to Arizona law, with the second jury unable to reach a decision on Arias’ punishment, the case is no longer eligible for the death penalty. A judge will now sentence Arias on April 13, 2015 to either life in prison or a life term with the possibility of release after 25 years. WHAT? Jodi Arias has lied her way through 3 trial, she violently murdered Travis Alexander stabbed him nearly 30 times, slit his throat so deeply that she nearly decapitated him, and shot him in the forehead. She first denied it, then said she did it in self defense. SELF-DEFENSE? Hell, why didn’t she say it was suicide? It would be a travesty of justice if this lying POS is given a sentence of a life term with the possibility of release after 25 years.
A hung jury in Phoenix was unable to decide whether Jodi Arias deserved the death penalty or life in prison for the gruesome murder of her lover Travis Alexander in 2008.
It’s the second time in the years since her 2013 conviction that an Arizona jury could not unanimously choose whether to put the murderer to death. This time around, jurors grappled for five days with the decision and couldn’t come to an agreement. The jury foreman said everyone had their mind made up and had no plans to budge.
Arias flew off the handle and stabbed Alexander to death nearly seven years ago after he told her he wanted to end their sordid affair and had plans to vacation in Mexico with another woman.
Jodi Arias jurors: ‘Penalty should have been death’
Jurors trash the lone belligerent juror who held out for Jodi Arias. One of the jurors even said that they were angered because this one hold out had her mind made up from the beginning and what angered him was that the juror said that the death penalty was just a form of revenge. Some of the jurors even stated that they thought the one hold out had an agenda.
The jurors alternately expressed remorse that they were not able to reach a verdict and anger at the woman who held out against the death penalty, saying they suspected she had an “agenda.”
“We really feel like we made a huge effort,” one juror said. “I could not say how sorry I am that it wasn’t enough.”
It was the second time a jury was hung on the question of whether to sentence Arias to death or life in prison for the June 4, 2008, slaying of her lover, Travis Alexander.
“The 11 of us strived for justice but to no avail,” a juror said. “We absolutely feel the penalty should have been death.”
