Now, the trial goes into the "aggravation" phase, in which the jury decides if Arias' killing of Alexander -- complete with cutting his throat, shooting him in the head, and stabbing him a couple dozen times -- was heinous, cruel, and depraved.

If they say the "aggravating factor" exists, the case will move on to the death-penalty phase.

Do you think Arias should get the death penalty?
