Will Jodi Arias Get the Death Penalty?

The jury in the Jodi Arias trial will continue deliberating this morning about whether the murderer should be executed.

Arias, always the drama queen, changed her talking points while addressing the jury yesterday, as she pleaded with the jury to let her live -- despite previously saying she would "prefer to die sooner than later."

Our colleague Ray Stern was in the courtroom yesterday, as Arias begged for mercy, never saying she was sorry or showing any remorse, really, for killing Travis Alexander.

"Some people may not believe I'm a survivor of domestic violence," Arias said, as she held up a friggin' shirt that said "survivor" on it. "They're entitled to their opinion."

More than two-thirds of New Times readers said Arias should be executed.

However, do you think the jury agrees with you? Cast your vote of prediction below:
