PHOENIX — Jurors in the Jodi Arias murder trial told the judge they’ve been unable to reach a unanimous verdict on whether she should be sentenced to life or death.

The judge sent them back to deliberate, saying they should identify areas of agreement and disagreement as they work toward a decision.

The case went to the panel Tuesday afternoon, and jurors deliberated for about an hour before adjourning for the day. They resumed Wednesday morning.

The deliberations come after Arias spoke to jurors in the penalty phase of her murder trial, asking them to spare her life. She says she’d use her time in prison to bring about positive change, including helping recycle trash and raising money for victims of domestic abuse.
