PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

As a jury decides her fate, Marissa Devalt made a tearful plea to spare her life.

The jury is deciding whether Devault, who is already convicted of killing her husband with a hammer, should die or be sentenced to life in prison.

She spoke for 11 minutes, she admitted to killing her husband, and she said she was sorry.

Devault said she wants to live, the jury is still considering the death penalty.    
    
"I've always been willing to accept full responsibility for my actions on the morning of January 14th, there were so many confusing difficult emotions and actions that I'm horrified by the untimely demise of Dale," said Devault.

"Dales family, my heart goes out to them, his mother and father have had to experience the worst loss in the world, the loss of a child and I knew there's nothing I can say that will ever ease their pain," she said.

"For our kids, there is absolutely no way to explain. To make sense of this situation and I'm truly sorry for that, I'm supposed to protect you and instead I hurt you ...and I brought them awful experiences and I failed them I raised you in a destructive house and this had just added and I don't expect forgiveness from them but I love them and I'm so sorry they have to look at themselves in the mirror everyday and remember because this carry this in them," she said.

"I can't do anything more than say im sorry, I can't push a back button, I can't bring him back, I can't fix everything that was wrong, I don't even know where to go back to if I had this button. I truly regret what happened and I wish I could fix it," she said.

Devault even apologized to the jury for having to carry this with them and for the time they served on the case.
