PHOENIX (AP) – The next phase of the Jodi Arias murder trial has been postponed until next week.

Court officials didn’t provide a reason for the delay. Court will resume Wednesday.

The jury was scheduled to return to the courtroom Thursday to decide whether Arias should be eligible for the death penalty for killing her one-time boyfriend on June 4, 2008.

The jury convicted Arias on Wednesday of first-degree murder.
