    have a question. Can the jury consider the possible future pain and suffering the Alexander Family would suffer should CMja somehow get life with the possibility of parole? The Alexander Family would be forced to relive the pain of their loss each time she came up for parole. Can they weigh that pain and suffering against any compassion they may have for her family? I have thought about this and would sentence her to Death because of the horribleness of her crime and what it would do to the family if she would possibly get life with parole. Am I being unfair in considering the future effects?

    Agreed. Completely agreed. There were NO mitigation factors. None. You weigh that against the cruelty of the murder and there should be a verdict of death. Someone on that jury isn't comfortable with the DP.

    I don't understand....if she gets Life, she will stay in the cushy jail with her biggest fan, Sheriff Joe, for up to 6 weeks? Then she'll be sentenced? Jean is so giddy.....

    HLN is driving me crazy. Who says the murderer got to the Jury?!
    For all we know some of them might think that death is an easy way out and they want her to rot in her tiny cell.

    I mean, just stop giving her credit.

    I grew up near Woodbine and O'Connor in the Beach area of Toronto (Woodbine and Queen). I sold my home there a few years ago. I'm in California now. My whole family is still there and I go back frequently. Any questions you need answered?

    Absolutely nothing.

    Now if you want to hear about an accurate method of predicting future events, I read cat litter...

    Can a juror quit? Like say... one juror refuses to issue a death penalty verdict and all the rest want to do that, what would happen if that juror just said forget it and walked out?

    I bet that at least one juror thinks she's mentally ill and so is against giving her death. There was nothing in the list of mitigators that any of these jurors could possibly have found compelling. JW's bringing in mental illness at the last minute must have stuck with someone.

    Only problem is that an alternate was seen looking at Jodi and her family INSTEAD of the Alexander family. The rest of the jurors were seen looking at the Alexander family.

    Molly...Mrs G Norris posted this earlier today.

    Deciding life, death takes toll on jurors

    When the deliberations began, the nine women and three men took a vote. Only three supported a death sentence, with four favoring a life sentence and the others undecided, said juror Mary Fobes, 74, of Mesa.

    Catalano said he wasn't sure.

    "I still hadn't made up my mind. I was giving her the benefit of the doubt," he said.

    After one day, the jury went home for a three-day weekend that some called full of soul searching.

    When they reconvened, Catalano gave a pivotal speech outlining his reasons for supporting a death sentence, and the vote swung to 11-1 in favor of execution, Fobes said.

    "It was very passionate on why he thought she deserved the death penalty," Fobes said. "The more I thought about it, how could she be so brutal? She must have totally flipped her wig. I don't know how anyone could do that."

    But the jury was on the verge of a deadlock, with one holdout, a senior citizen from Gilbert, saying he was adamantly against the death penalty.

    From Wendy Andriano case .. she is now on death row in Arizona

    but they really have to REFUSE to deliberate. we had a trial here where one juror was the holdout and she laid on the floor in the jury room, covered her ears and loudly sang songs. and they were MADE to keep deliberating with her for a long time. i think she was finally booted.
