The defense in the Jodi Arias trial demanded a mistrial on Tuesday. Attorneys for both sides, Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander’s family were all huddled in the judge’s chambers for over an hour.

When they finally returned to the courtroom, the judge announced that Juror 5 had been dismissed. The juror was seen leaving the courthouse sobbing while court observers noticed Jodi Arias smiling in court.
