Jury deadlocks on penalty for Arias

PHOENIX — The judge in the Jodi Arias murder trial declared a mistrial in the penalty phase Thursday after the jury reported for a second time that it was deadlocked on whether to sentence her to life in prison or death for killing her boyfriend in 2008.

The judge scheduled a retrial for July 18. A new panel likely will be seated to try to reach a decision on a sentence — unless the prosecutor agrees to a life sentence.
