Hearing in Jodi Arias murder case closed to public

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) - A closed-door hearing was held Thursday in the Jodi Arias murder case.

The subject of the hearing was unknown.

The hearing was closed to the public, including news reporters.

Arias was convicted of murder in the 2008 killing of her lover, but jurors couldn't reach a decision on a sentence.

A second penalty phase is set for September as prosecutors again seek a death sentence.

Her murder conviction stands, but prosecutors have the option of putting on a second penalty phase with a new jury.

If the second panel fails to reach a unanimous decision, the death penalty will be removed from consideration. The judge then would sentence Arias to spend her life behind bars or be eligible for release after 25 years.
