At the status hearing, Judge Sherry Stevens delayed her decision of when the retrial of the penalty phase will take place. She set another hearing to decide the matter for July 18, 2013.
Jodi’s mother was also in court. It was reported that she has not seen Jodi in quite some time. It’s unclear why that might be. She was hoping to spend time with her daughter before Jodi was returned to jail. No word on whether or not she was granted that time with Jodi.
Her mother told a reporter that Jodi has had a hard time since the trial.
Perhaps that is because reality is setting in.
Before and during the trial, Jodi hoped for an acquittal or at least a lesser conviction. Now those hopes are dashed.
She is a convicted murderer and at her most recent court appearance, she was treated as such.
