    Can someone explain the sentencing options? I know they are going for the death penalty for Jodi, but what if the jury finds her guilty but doesn't want to put her to death? Do they have the option to change to life sentence (w/out parole), or would the charge drop to 2nd degree murder? Would be great if they could explain on Headline News. I'm watching the whole thing!

    On the Jodi Arias hearings, my thought is, Jodi admits that Travis Alexander was abusive to her. How can she use this as a defense when she made the long trip to his home to be with him? She went to him!
