Jodi Arias Trial: Five Things to Watch for Between Now and July 18

Jodi Arias coverage has been in the doldrums since the May 23 non-decision by the jury on the death penalty.

Some news media outlets are digging up crumbs leftover from the trial. Nancy Grace and CNN resorted to interviewing Arias' fellow jail inmates; Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced last month that Arias would no longer be allowed to speak to the media.

That's as big a relief to most thinking people as it is a ratings disaster for HLN and other news outlets that relied on the Arias trial to sell ads.

For those with AOD, Arias Obsession Disorder, (we've been trying to shake a mild case ourselves since parachuting into the trial coverage in early February...), the news gap has been somewhat startling. No new details forthcoming about what Travis Alexander wanted to do with Arias, no venom-filled barbs from Juan Martinez -- no new statements by Arias at all? Even Arias' Twitter account has been silent lately, with no tweets since 9:59 a.m. on May 29.

Fortunately, more coverage is coming up. Here are five things to watch out for between now and July 18, the date scheduled for a retrial of the penalty phase:

5. A delay. As the Maricopa County Superior Court's website shows, a status conference is still scheduled to be held on June 20. That's when the lawyers on both sides will get together to talk about their preparations for the upcoming new penalty phase, which will involve the convening of a new jury. Prosecutor Juan Martinez doesn't want a delay. Paperwork he filed last week shows that all he's asking for is to call the same witnesses he called during the trial. Besides, he doesn't seem like a guy who has anything better to do this summer.

Look for some sort of rescheduling request from defense lawyers Jennifer Willmott, Kirk Nurmi, or Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens, who -- like most normal folk -- will be itching to spend as much time as possible in San Diego or somewhere else that's not roasting at 110-plus.

4. Political grandstanding by Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, who wants people to believe he's not a politician. Montgomery must decide whether or not to pursue the death penalty, and so far, he's moving forward. But would he keep trying to execute Arias if the victim's family decides to oppose continuing this circus?

More than anything, the answer probably depends on what Montgomery believes his right-wing constituents want, and what they might think if he should lose.

i think jodi needs to  be given another trial if she passes then and only then after her mental issue get s to where she can control it then she can be let go but if she acts up.i myself think she should not get the death penalty and myself i am a christian i dont belive in killing another person because she did somthing crazy like that god gives second chances why dont you guys give her second chances.i've done bad things in the past not like that but the judge gave me A second chance so please dont pick on this poor innocent person love all of you through god and i am a strong christian.

Dear Travis Alexander, may you rest in peace and always be fondly remembered.

Now:

Alexander Family files “Wrongful Death Law Suit”. To seize all JA profits from crimes.

Arizona State to retry Jodi Arias, “Penalty Phase”; Start date is July 18, 2013.

MCSO Statement: JA confined to her cell 23 hours a day. No more media interviews.

Defense "Hail Mary": JA is “Mentally Ill” and should not be subject to the death penalty.

This complex crime, JA was convicted of, exposed JA for the macabre sane killer JA is.

Then:

JA stated "No Jury will ever convict me". JA could not have been more wrong".

JA was convicted of "Premeditated First-Degree Murder’ and “Extreme Cruelty”.  

Defense request to quit denied. JA tells jury "Your Verdicts are wrong. I am a Survivor”.

JA ridicules defense, verdicts, jurors, everyone and gets a Deadlocked Jury, Outrageous!

Okay lets review,.

She planned a week in advance to murder Travis Alexander, if he didn't meet her demands.   After she butchered him she sent him a CHEERY email, inviting him to see a Shakespeare play (setting alibi),  then she went to hump some other guy.,   Does that sound like someone who was abused or someone acting in self defense?   She is a full blooded PSYCHOPATH, Too bad many of you dimwits don't recognize that.  There are lots of  Jodi types walking amongst you,  both male and female.   Americans seem to be the dumbest people on earth.

Comments: JA convicted of "Premeditated First-Degree Murder’ and “Extreme Cruelty”.

JA stated "No Jury will ever convict me". JA could not have been more wrong".

JA, a remorseless killer, stated “Seeking the Death Penalty is Revenge not Justice”.

Defense request to quit denied. JA tells jury "Their Verdicts are wrong. I am a Survivor”.

Following the guilty verdicts of phases 1 and 2, the phase 3 verdict will logically be Death.

The last woman executed was 80 years ago. JA will die of old age before being executed.

JA states “A Death or Life conviction doesn’t matter to me; I’ll be around for a long time”. 

Of the 12 Jurors, eight imposed the Death penalty. Four Jurors were incapable of doing so!

JA ridicules defense, verdicts, jurors, everyone and gets a Deadlocked Jury, Outrageous!

THE FACTS: JA killed TA June 4, 2008. Arrested July 15, 2008 - 1st Degree Murder

If someone feels in the doldrums about the lull in the lack of news coverage, then They go go to sites which report on a lot ofevidence and facts not covered by the tabloid biased media. Check out the documents on jodi Arias is Innocent, Occupy HLN, and sites like 'pitchforks babel booth' and 'what you think you know' There is a lot that the public doesn't know and needs to know.

@mary800              True... it wasn't a jury of her peers, that, convicted her; but, a panel of spectators, who were, hypnotricked, by the carnival side show, audition.               The shucking and, jiving, spastic, prostitutor, hypnonauseators;'   dancing with the stars, Charlie Chaplin, strobe show, carnival act,  wherein, dozens of reasonable doubts, were concealed from the jury, as they languished in their, spaz induced comas... Do note, how many, third grade, Nobel laureate, lynch mobster sites, have crawled back under their troll bridges, rather than, by,  trying to refute the facts; none of which, got to the jury...    Edgar...

oh good, blame the victim, his fault for breaking up with her  and she's ALWAYS threatened people, go google the case before you start telling people to save a killer  ugh, lets let all the killers who went through emotional problems back onto the streets! (they practically ALL have impulse control problems and kill usually their wives you retard)

@mrh0202201091 The "whites" probably get treated better as you state since they contribute more to this society.  If Hispanics can pick up their game a little, they might have a better shot in court.
