Judge Fox News senior judicial it was -- its -- -- kind of you know -- I don't remember in covering trials like this over the years I don't remember anybody ever being given the opportunity to.
To participate in an interview like this and that it happened in Maricopa County real well a week you know what we were all familiar with the -- from America academy and the rigidity with which you forces roses so that -- that is shocking.
I'm sure this was done against the advice of her lawyers know good from her point of view can come from this other than the type of remorse which we did not see.
So if she for example gets on the witness stand -- let's say the aggravation phase goes in the states favor -- that is that is an aggravating factor.
And we get to the penalty phase and then the state presents its evidences to why she should be executed.
And then her lawyers present evidence about why she shouldn't if among that evidence is heard testimony.
They will cross examine her with a clip of what she said on our fox five affiliate in Phoenix and say wait a minute you just told the world three weeks ago you wanted to be executed.
Now you're telling this jury you want them to save fuel.
And that will impeach her credibility even more than it's already been impeached.
So no lawyer would have permitted her to do that -- has good good experience trial counsel I'm sure she did this against their wishes and over -- objection.
Do you see the pictures outside -- courthouse yes.
And I mean it happened after OJ yes I do.
I don't know I was -- will be well it's disturbing to see that but I can understand -- I mean.

Long running soap opera of the the sort of you know.
Real life drama that people just immerse themselves in much like it didn't -- yes well the -- Charles as you know for other networks can become theater and even their -- -- there.
And if it fortunately I don't think affects anything going on and -- the courtroom this is.
Dreadfully serious what's going to happen now.
-- the use of the death penalty in Arizona against a woman -- -- told us hasn't happened since the 1930s.
The court and the lawyers have to be very very careful and clear that they follow all the procedures both steps.
Is there an aggravating factor Schroeder is the jury could find that she was depraved and cruel and inhumane.
Then the weighing and balancing aggravating factors vs mitigating.
Aggravating factors and the bad things mitigating factors are good things about her if the aggravating outweigh the mitigating than the jury is -- to sentence her to death.
If the jury sentences her to death the judge can undo the sentence the -- does not sentenced -- to death he cannot overrule the jury and that -- -- he can remove it.
-- zone but he can't impose them so.
