Jodi Arias to Represent Herself in Trial Death Penalty Phase

Jodi Arias to Represent Herself

Jodi Arias, who was convicted in the killing of her boyfriend last year, is going to be allowed to represent herself when she’s put on trial again to rule if she will receive the death penalty. Jurors found her guilty of first-degree murder but were unable to decide on her sentencing, so a new phase of her murder trial will begin in a 30 days. Arias petitioned the court to allow her to serve as her own lawyer, despite having no legal experience, college or high school diploma.
