PHOENIX (AP) -- Jodi Arias is set for a court appearance later this week ahead of the start of jury selection in her penalty phase retrial.

The 34-year-old was found guilty of murder last year in the 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend but jurors couldn't agree on a sentence. While her conviction stands, the retrial will determine whether she is sentenced to death or life in prison.

Arias is set for court Friday with jury selection beginning Monday.

The retrial is expected to last into December. It will not be televised live after the judge ruled that no video footage may be broadcast until after the verdict.

Arias admitted that she killed Travis Alexander but claimed it was self-defense. Prosecutors argued it was premeditated murder carried out in a jealous rage.
