PHOENIX - As a jury deliberates whether Jodi Arias should live or die for killing her one-time boyfriend, the convicted murderer says she deserves a chance at freedom someday.
Arias spoke to The Associated Press within hours of the jury getting the case in a surprise move that she said had the blessing of her attorneys who just a day earlier sought to quit the case.
Arias was dressed in a white sweater and gray stripped inmate pants and shackled at the ankles as she described her case. She says she doesn't believe she received a fair trial. She says the jury should have been sequestered and that no cameras should have been allowed in the courtroom even though she repeatedly sought the spotlight.
The jury convicted her last week.
