The foreman of the Jodi Arias jury is speaking out one day after the 12-member panel failed to reach a unanimous decision on whether she should live or die for the brutal slaying of her ex-boyfriend.
Although jury foreman William Zervakos said that Arias was "a bad witness" when she took the stand, he admits that the defense's portrayal of Travis Alexander as an abuser had some effect.
"I’m very sure in my own mind that she was mentally and verbally abused," Zervakos said in an interview Friday with "Good Morning America." "Does that factor in the decisions we [the jury] make? It has to.”
The new penalty phase of trial is scheduled to begin in July.
