It was announced this week that a settlement conference has been scheduled.  This announcement followed two delays in a hearing on defense motions for the re-sentencing phase.  Jodi Arias was convicted of first-degree murder, but the jury didn’t agree on the sentencing.  A mistrial of the sentencing phase was declared.

Oral arguments on motions are set for October 4th, and the settlement conference is set for October 24th.

    It’s difficult to see what good the imposition of the death penalty would do except assuage people’s desires for a pound of flesh. Two wrongs don’t a right make.
