The Jodi Arias trial isn't finished yet, even though the jury found her guilty Wednesday of killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in an "especially cruel manner."

As the trial moves into it's final stage Thursday, the jury will now have to decide if she will live or die via lethal injection.
The next stage of the trial is the penalty phase, and it is scheduled to begin Thursday at 1:30 p.m. ET.
HLN will cover this next phase of the trial live, and HLNTV.com will live-blog the proceedings.
Deciding whether a defendant will live or die can obviously be a difficult decision for jurors to make.
During jury selection, all potential jurors were asked whether they could put someone to death if the law and evidence warranted it. The potential jurors who said they could not morally sentence someone to death were removed from the panel. This happens in all death penalty cases.

Thursday's proceedings will be run similarly to Wednesday's aggravation phase. It will be a like a miniature trial, with some slight differences.
The defense will go first when it comes to opening statements, and the defense will also get the last word with a rebuttal closing argument.
The penalty phase is the defense’s opportunity to ask the jury for leniency and present evidence supporting why Arias should be spared from the death penalty. Witnesses may include Arias’ friends and family. Arias could also make a statement to the jury pleading for her life to be spared.
Alexander's family members may take the stand for the prosecution to give victim impact statements. The family's statements will likely be emotional as they describe their loss.
After closing arguments, the jury then deliberates for a third time to determine whether Arias should be sentenced to life or death. Their decision must be unanimous. In the case of a deadlock, a mistrial would be granted and a new jury would be chosen for this phase only.
