WATCH: Was Arias statement all about 'me, me, me'?

The Jodi Arias trial has been a very horrific and emotional experience for many people involved, and as those 12 jurors continue to deliberate Arias' fate, we can only wonder how they are feeling.

But Paula Calzetta has a pretty good idea of what those jurors are going through. Calzetta, a retired probation officer, served as a juror in the 2010 murder trial of Steven Hayes. Hayes and his accomplice Joshua Komisarjevsky broke into the Cheshire, Connecticut, home of Dr. William Petit in July 2007. Hayes was convicted of murdering Petit's wife Jennifer Hawke-Petit and their daughters, 11-year-old Michaela and 17-year-old Hayley.
