Status hearing for Jodi Arias trial set for Thursday

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

We should find out more Thursday about how the retrial of the Jodi Arias penalty phase will move forward.

A status hearing is scheduled so the judge can hear from the attorneys about their progress.

The retrial is scheduled for July 18, but defense attorneys say they need until January to prepare their case.

Here's what our legal experts are telling us about what could happen.

"The judge will probably bump it out maybe a month or six weeks but not six months. the other thing that's going to happen, the defense is going to talk about the need to protect witnesses,” says Brian Foster, one of our legal experts.

“They've given no indication whatsoever, either Bill Montgomery or Juan Martinez, that they are not going to go after the death penalty, they've given no hems or haws or anything like that at all,” says Monica Lindstrom, our other legal expert.

Opinions are divided on what will happen. Monica Lindstrom thinks there will be a retrial of the penalty phase. Brian Foster told us he thinks they'll reach a plea deal.
