PHOENIX — Jurors deciding whether convicted murderer Jodi Arias should get the death penalty or life in prison for killing her boyfriend will resume deliberations Tuesday.

The Maricopa County Superior Court jury in Phoenix didn't reach a decision Monday. They got the case Wednesday, deliberated Thursday and then recessed for the weekend.

Arias was convicted of first-degree murder in May 2013, but jurors deadlocked on her punishment.

If this jury can't decide on Arias' sentence, the death penalty would be removed as an option. The judge then would decide whether Arias serves life in prison or gets the possibility of release after 25 years.

Arias' trial became a sensation with its tawdry revelations about her relationship with victim Travis Alexander. He was killed at his suburban Phoenix home in 2008.
