PHOENIX (CBS5) -
There has been a lot of attention paid to Jodi Arias' recent comments about how she prefers the death penalty over life in prison, but it's a belief she's held for years.
In 2008, 48 Hours interviewed Arias about her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander's death. At the time, Arias denied killing him.
"If a conviction happens, I know that I won't be the first person to be wrongly convicted and possibly wrongly sentenced for either life in prison or the death penalty," stated Arias at the time.
"Personally, if I had my choice, I would take the death penalty because I don't want to spend the rest of my life in prison. But I'm not so much angry at that as I am thinking, 'What a waste because I did have my whole future ahead of me.' I had everything to lose and nothing to gain if I were to have killed Travis," she continued in the 2008 interview.
Arias is expected to take the stand Monday when the jury reconvenes for the sentencing part of her trial. Thursday, the jurors were inexplicably dismissed early. It's unclear what Arias will say Monday. Many wonder whether she will continue to ask for the death penalty.
