Detroit Free Press: Jodi Arias trial: Transcripts on juror questions unsealed
The next day, according to juror questions released Wednesday, the jurors said, "We would like to explain our earlier question." They had not yet reached impasse, they said, but wanted to know what to do in the event they did. Stephens wrote back that they should use a juror questionnaire form.
Later that day, they sent another message.
"After long and careful deliberation, we are unable to reach a unanimous decision," it said.
Stephens scribbled a note back to them: "Do you think breaking until Wednesday, May 29, could benefit your deliberations?"
The response: "We do not feel further deliberations will change the outcome." Stephens told them to complete a verdict form to that effect. It was over.
