Arias back in court
ARIZONA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Convicted murderer Jodi Arias is expected to be back in an Arizona court Monday morning.
A date for the retrial of the penalty phase in her case could be set at that hearing.
Arias was convicted of first-degree murder in May, but she hasn't been sentenced.
That's because a mistrial was declared when the penalty phase ended with a hung jury.
When the retrial begins a new jury will be selected.
But the first-degree murder conviction still stands and so does the jury's findings that Arias murdered Travis Alexander in a cruel manner.
The new jury will only make a decision on whether Arias will get the death penalty or life in prison
