The jury in the Jodi Arias case announced just before noon today that they can't reach a unanimous decision on whether Arias should be executed.
Maricopa County Judge Sherry Stephens sent the jury back to try again.
Under Arizona law, the jury will be dismissed and a new jury convened if the stalemate continues. That new jury won't re-determine Arias' guilt or innocence, just whether she should receive the death sentence or life in prison.

Members of murder victim Travis Alexander's family were visibly upset after the announcement.
The jury deliberated for about two hours this morning before reaching their non-decision. Stephens read more jury instructions to them before asking them to keep trying.
