Arias jurors say they were 11-1 for death

Friday, March 6, 2015

PHOENIX -- It took just one juror to spare the life of convicted murderer Jodi Arias on Thursday.

In the end, the jury voted 11-1 in favor of death -- not enough to send Arias to death row in the case that became a global sensation with its tawdry revelations about her sexual relationship with the victim and that she had slit his throat so deeply that he nearly was decapitated.

The deadlock took the death penalty off the table and left a judge to decide whether to sentence Arias to life in prison or to life with the possibility of release after 25 years.
