The nearly seven-year legal saga of convicted murderer Jodi Arias is about to draw to a close with her sentencing today in a Phoenix court.

The sentencing is largely a formality after a jury was deadlocked on whether to give her the death penalty.

The mistrial removed the death penalty as an option.

Arias was convicted in 2013 of killing of ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander.

But that jury also deadlocked on her punishment, prompting the sentencing retrial that began in October.
