Or is now the convicted killer -- areas gives an interview to fox Phoenix this year we're only minutes after her conviction here is part of what she had to say.
In an interview that frankly has stunned everyone watched -- thirteenth.
Moments ago you heard the verdict from the jury what are your thoughts.
I think they just didn't blink.
And then and his film overwhelmed.
I think I just need to.
-- at a time.
There -- expected you think this -- It was unexpected.
From me yes -- there was no premeditation on my heart can see how things look that way but.
I didn't expect premeditation if I could see maybe the felony murder because of how allies Britain.
But -- makes the whole time I was fairly confident I wouldn't get premeditation because there was nothing.
It -- some of those jurors didn't believe what you're telling them to live your story.
We've got some.
I can understand that I think he -- -- What I miss the life that I -- in the beginning to try to cover this conference -- high.
Think that I didn't want to be known the public I don't know that I have a direct message from the -- and know them.
I prayed constantly for single one of them so best picture it was brought to me that's because you're innocent.
So you you pray for the jury.
I -- prior to -- the different terrorists who would be on my journey so I'm.
I just have to believe that those -- -- -- Are you focusing on the core or -- you focusing on what could be being the worst outcome for you.
Although we're -- Anyway the natural life I would try to die sooner or later longevity friends and family come -- and that's my natural life in one place.
You know pretty healthy and smoke.
You know empower women longtime.
Senate -- from him implanted.
I think years ago that I try to -- death than life and that still -- true today.
I believe that this -- -- -- and so I'd rather just have my freedom sigfosin thinking it.
So you're saying actually prefer.
Getting the death penalty to being in prison for life.
Especially that the two sisters.
And the younger brother.
If you could say something to them.
-- do it say to them.
I hope that now -- -- continue to -- that they're able to find peace.
Some sense it's.
I don't think -- -- -- kind of case that they would you like but maybe he made it won't be able to.
Have greater peace now.
For some semblance of it and be able to monitor lights and remember their president the way they want.
Just the way everything happened.
I think that advise him on -- from the beginning in a different place.
Yeah so it.
And -- Because of what I've done a lot of people for a long time.
Minutes after the conviction.
Troy Hayden was the reporter there from fox Phoenix we've reached out to him we hope to talk to him this morning.
With me now is the host of on the record Greta Van Susteren Greta good morning -- -- it's good to have you on our program as -- I know you ran this interview first thing last on your program at 10 o'clock eastern time.
But it here's what I take away from minutes.
Either her attorney had absolutely no control.
Over the client -- areas.
-- or their clever by half because all of this is.
Going to the possibility that you know she just crazy in the first place and that may indeed save her life in the end from the death penalty.
Now I -- I don't know where this jury goes from here.
But will begin that phase starting today but how in the world is it possible that someone walks out of court into another room it gives an interview like that.
That's got to be a -- client.
Or the lawyers really don't like remembered -- -- One of the -- and closing arguments there's not a candidate he doesn't like her well that's what have been one of the basically simply abandoned her I don't know that -- high -- But I can't see this as being clever because is that the nation that the going to be voting -- death penalty -- the deepest Jerry.
And the jury is told not to listen to news accounts simply do literature is not gonna hear this that the Brothers low way to try to information that it.
-- military hoping that they might violate the court order.
But the worst that can happen to a lawyer is -- have a client just freelance like best.
Yeah I agree I had but Greta when you talk about the attorney is that a man or a woman because the image we have here.
Is -- a woman we just see half from her face here in the camera picture.
And she's the one -- puts her arm honor -- and I -- taps are back a little bit after the the verdict is read.
-- you know but it they had to try and it hit at double thing is that you know it still looks a point -- -- -- -- -- rushed at you know.
The experts are -- because she feels bad but let it billion like the worst I'm actually at that.
Of that fact that this client is talking about what if I had -- chance in infielder.
As a journalist I would see the moment and do it -- -- -- it -- -- planet and and go interview over.
But the worst thing probably pure liberal legal perspective represented I've done that a leakage there's.
Is that this that this couldn't be inward dangerous thing to do if you're trying to save her life -- that they issue may have driven them not so maybe extraordinary difficult client.
But that's part of the Chavis that you -- -- -- I'm surprised the lawyers weren't Knoblauch was there all night long record in the death that.
Ever have verdict of guilty of premeditated -- -- and most lawyers would have been there all night long -- cell block where they're preparing her for the next is the.
Are -- so how does how does -- relationship reached that point between attorney client.
I'm -- -- -- so crazy for month after month after month that they I think you know what the work and we do we've got no control here over Klein.
What can't start I think if a client can go into someone's house and steps to its waste on time split out fireball into the person's chance of that person -- the easiest person to get along with.
The lawyers and it would undoubtedly had touchdowns begin with and we can't deny that she -- -- At least not -- I'm not there.
Or -- -- Greta I heard that there are fewer than troopers of the people on death road America today they -- through the women account for -- -- fewer than 2%.
On Google -- set -- as he did did she qualify for the death penalty here based on what you've heard from his case on the inside.
You know at the turn makes the decision the jury to hear the fact.
But military -- don't keep in all the mavericks to -- and others have put a woman and that's relevant activate what some women and that's -- -- have X it's a woman's.
And it did and at the defense lawyers did banking on that that the antlers and it is even -- deeper trouble and I thought.
They don't -- women on death row they do XQ weren't ID -- are against that they don't talk what actually court we talk about the evidence.
And it is a very Christian -- They -- they may have a different PO market is on the witness it for eighteen days.
And they think -- -- expect that.
But the person aren't gonna stick with the person on death row three X it's that may happen at no idea what the spirit is that I can only -- -- -- Really high -- situation.
He's not like the -- The current horrible she'd been convicted they may not like the lies she told them on the witness stand the -- not a good position for the -- and right now and I'm and I'm a -- -- Disturbed -- maybe so that apartment that couldn't control -- and that does happen that you're a lawyer to -- it's.
Just final -- good to have you on Greta thanks -- really have a lot more tonight 10 o'clock eastern time on the record Greta Van Susteren Greta thank you here in the Fox News Channel checker out later tonight primetime.
One female attorney I'm being told one male attorney on that case.
