Death Penalty is Expected in the Jodi Arias Hearing Today

20 May

Jodi Arias is scheduled to appear in Court this morning for what will hopefully be the last appearance. Today should bring about an end to the sentencing phase of her trial, which is expected to result in a death penalty verdict.

Today is the day where the jury will be deciding whether or not Arias will be executed for the murder of Travis Alexander. The jury is the same jury that convicted Ms. Arias for the murder. Earlier last week, the jury decided the act was sufficiently cruel to warrant the death penalty, now they must decide if that penalty will be given to Arias.

Members of Alexander’s family testified last week about the impact his death has had on their family. Steven Alexander, Travis’ younger brother, told the jury about how he dreams about the slaying often and has developed ulcers requiring hospitalization since the incident, according to Reuters.
