And in that jury will be tasked with deciding whether -- -- should live or -- an incredible series of circumstances.
On the upper right of your screen is a live feed coming to -- outside the courthouse -- where if the jurors decide they want to speak.
And some may they'll come to those that podium and speak if the lawyers for either side the defense or the prosecutors want to speak.
They'll do so they -- because the gag order is lifted.
Think of this.
This process has been going on form the better part of half of my life.
-- on and on and on with a gag order.
All of a sudden we get down to the penalty phase they've decided that the judge the jury has decided yes this was special circumstances or whatever they call it in Arizona.
Yes she's eligible to get the death penalty.
Then they begin this death penalty phase and during the death penalty -- the judge for the first time the lifted the gag order.
So -- hearings has been out there spouting her stuff the murder that she is don't forget when you watch this woman stayed up their talk about the greatness that she's gonna be in the -- -- Don't forget what she did -- this man.
Don't forget she slit his throat from ear to ear and shot him in the -- and stamped him 27 times and how close you -- to someone when you stab them.
You close enough to where the blood is spurting all over you.
To where he is dying in your own arms that's what she did to this man.
And now she's been up their spouting about how she's gonna make things better and she just doesn't want to cause anyone any pain -- the jury pool all of a sudden it's been hearing that.
Because the judge lifted the gag order here's how this went down in court listen.
State of Arizona vs -- and -- sentencing verdict.
We the jury duly impaneled it's Warren above entitled action upon our -- -- has unanimously find having considered all the facts and circumstances.
That is -- it should be sentenced.
No you can't ask you -- unanimous agreement signed -- person.
-- -- -- -- Not much overreaction their right continuing to watch that well is that to him.
Anyway so now we wait for the jurors come out and speak again.
The judge lifted the gag order so we've heard chapter and verse from -- from -- areas the murderer.
She's talked about how things are gonna be great presence he's gonna teach people how to speak Spanish.
She's gonna start -- recycling program she has been speaking to a potential next jury and for her.
This worked out absolutely perfectly.
The judge who allowed her to speak on the stand to take the stand for seventeen.
Then later lifted the gag order and let the reporters right in there so the -- areas could spell away about all the great things she's gonna do now.
Now that she's murdered her ex lover.
-- right dollar studio -- contributor Fox News legal analyst here in studio with us tonight.
First of all I have never in all my born days heard of a don't that in handling of a new jury to take over it penalty -- -- I've never heard of it either is very unique into Arizona as is the jurors asking the defendant question as the -- as -- did.
-- relations back up for a second what you just showed.
I've never seen him -- -- to dread like that never normally -- -- comes out and says.
We can't reach a verdict we can't reach unanimous verdict don't forget any of -- -- says we don't have we correct your deadlock speculators into -- the jury for your time pace and -- would god be with the the weight.
The -- just -- Read the verdict it took years off the people's lives and you thought there was going to be we've -- unanimously definitely -- unanimously life in prison.
Should we fight unanimously no unanimous decision that is so off the wall the way that was read first -- -- -- -- -- everything was it was a question.
And and -- -- Of a lack of professionalism and somewhat of a lack of a judged.
Not really being in control of a courtroom and especially in a national platform like this so now.
After everyone got used to get over their life would that verdict being read.
They have to go back to the drawing board the poor family of the deceased they have no closure of their dangling like little puppet state -- that that.
Wait until July a new jury a new process the defense attorneys who are absolutely exhausted probably gonna try to get -- case -- shepherd.
Could you imagine what they'll put another try again and again and again for a get off this they gonna probably try to get up again and get them I'll be very surprised -- in July the actually aren't paddling a jury what you you know they're gonna seek change event of course justice Trace -- Trace and if -- -- the judge finally -- the judge the lawyer is off the case.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So this this saga is not going to end any time.
And explain to me how.
This judge has had a gag order on this case from the very beginning and when we get down to the most important thing.
The government is going to kill you.
Or we're gonna lock you up for the rest of your life the most important thing that the government can ever decide.
The people are having to decide what the government is about to do to a citizen of the United States.
And she lives the gag order -- what are you talking.
About the only.
Rational division I can think of is this is a woman who's literally fighting for a life literally fighting for a life.
She has had our First Amendment Bob privileges.
Taken away from -- throughout the course of the trial she's not allowed to speak freely the way everyone else's.
I mean I'm guessing shepherd but the judge probably today she got a couple of days left.
She wants to -- some interviews wanna -- the -- achieved joke set above Torre you know I'm speaking of Joseph Arpaio who's been meanest -- meanest of the meanest supposedly.
He arranged and it allowed it to happen as she never looked so good I mean -- -- made up in the lipstick and all that stuff and she's now made a case which is out -- and nationally revenue -- there are patent -- of I have heard and that they haven't they'll be Google -- that right now.
This woman who stood up on that stand and for days accuse her ex lover of abusing her.
After she murdered him in cold blood accuse him of abusing her.
That's what -- families and there was not a scintilla of evidence to support that accusation nothing the whole way.
Which she was up there -- allowed to assassinate him I DN.
And now there's no verdict and now they have to go through all of this again.
Upper right hand portion of your screen that's where we'll -- or now on the left hand side of your screen that's where we're waiting to hear from the jurors if they wish to speak they may.
Will be able to hear from the lawyers we're told we have a couple of minutes of really take a quick break and our live coverage continues right after this.
