An Arizona jury was once again unable to reach a unanimous decision on whether Jodi Arias should be executed for the gruesome 2008 murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, a judge announced Thursday.

Because a second jury was deadlocked in the penalty phase of Arias’ case, the death penalty is off the table, and the convicted killer will be sentenced to life in prison.

Judge Sherry Stephens will determine within the next four to six weeks whether Arias will be sentenced to life, or to life with the possibility of release after 25 years.

Arias would get credit for the six years she has already served.
