Jodi Arias mistrial: Courtroom reacts to jury's decision (VIDEO)

PHOENIX - The judge in the Jodi Arias trial declared a mistrial in the penalty phase Thursday after the jury reported for a second time that it was deadlocked on whether to sentence her to life in prison or death.

Arias, who first said she wanted to die and then that she wanted to live, looked visibly upset about the jury deadlock. She sobbed in the courtroom before the mistrial was announced. Her family didn't attend Thursday but has been present for much of the trial.

Family members of the victim, Travis Alexander, also cried in court.
