For the jury found -- Jiri is guilty yesterday the Maricopa County attorney made it perfectly clear that prosecutors work is not finished.
He says they still have to pursue justice for -- victim Travis Alexander.
And he issued a statement -- reason part.
We look forward to the next phase of the proceedings where the state will present evidence to prove the murder was committed in an especially heinous.
-- -- or depraved manner.
Of course that next phase was supposed to begin today Brian fosters a criminal defense attorney she's -- -- for us from Phoenix this afternoon right.
Is -- is any of the thinking about why they may have postponed this -- about this interview that she did with our station in Phoenix.
Well you know what there's a lot of speculation among the local attorneys here a lot of us believe it has to do with the interview she did that local fox ten.
And in fact maybe she's doing it against the advice or council which I'm sure she years.
You know maybe the defense needs time to prepare in light of the use of this video during the mitigating phase of the the end death penalty phase.
There's a lot of speculation but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with that -- -- -- surprised the attorney allowed that.
Hi I don't think the attorney allowed it I think that -- areas just as he has done throughout his down whatever she wants to do.
I'm sure his -- her attorneys have been telling her throughout.
Have no contact with the media you're just hurting hurting your case -- is a nasty mix master manipulator in my mind.
And I think that she had -- ulterior motive for doing that interview and I think it's gonna come back and -- in that back side.
Is it your sense that once this phase of the trial does begin that we're -- here.
A lot more this gruesome testimony are we moving forward with something else.
Well we're getting -- gruesome testimony initially through -- -- medical examiner because he doesn't have to establish the cruel and heinous nature of the crime in order to get the aggravating factor.
And to get her the death penalty.
So we are gonna suffer through that again but I think it'll be pretty quick because the jury is already heard most of that already show.
All right Brian thanks very much life force from Phoenix criminal -- attorney.
