Jodi Arias is seeking a delay of her penalty phase, set to start September 8th, while a judge considers whether to allow one of her defense attorneys to withdraw.  Arias, convicted in 2013 of first-degree murder, is currently serving as her own attorney.   Kirk Nurmi has asked to withdraw as legal advisor.  Arias says in her motion to delay that if Nurmi is allowed to withdraw, she will allow Jennifer Willmott to represent her at the sentencing hearing.
