PHOENIX (CBS5) -
There are nine men and six women remaining on the Jodi Arias jury. Of those 15 jurors, 12 will decide Arias' fate.
They have lots of elements in the case to consider that were introduced during the trial that lasted more than three months.
Perhaps the biggest factor is whether they believe the woman who lied from the very beginning. Jurors will need to determine if Arias is a cold-blooded killer or if she killed her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in self-defense. It could mean the difference between a lifetime behind bars and death row.
Arias has told a few stories about what happened the day Alexander died. First she said she was not there at all. Then she said that two masked intruders killed Alexander and that Arias narrowly escaped.
Now she admits that she killed her ex-lover but says she did it in self-defense.
Jurors also need to weigh the expert testimony. They heard from several psychologists in the case. Those working for the defense say Arias has post traumatic stress disorder and battered women's syndrome.
The prosecution's expert says Arias has borderline personality disorder.
Jurors will also try to figure out who Alexander was, whether he was the church-going public speaker loved by friends and family or if he had an abusive side that only Arias said.
Jurors know Arias killed Alexander - no one is disputing that.
