Her final plea: Will Jodi Arias beg for her life?

  • Jodi Arias will address the jury when the penalty phase of her trial continues this week. Watch it live on HLN
  • Arias was found guilty of first-degree murder for killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander

Jodi Arias will address the jury when the penalty phase of her trial continues Monday. Watch it live on HLN.

After six months of the Jodi Arias trial, jurors are now tasked with a simple question: Does she deserve to die for the death of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander?

Arias was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. On Wednesday, jurors decided that Arias murdered Alexander in a "cruel manner." Now, the jury has to decide if Jodi will live or die via lethal injection.

In the past couple weeks alone, we've watched emotional pleas from Alexander's siblings to the jury, an interview with Arias moments after her conviction and her attorneys asking to be removed from the case.

Jurors learned Thursday that Arias will speak in the death penalty phase. Prosecutor Holly Hughes sat down with HLN Weekend Express' Natasha Curry to give us an idea of what may be up next.
