PHOENIX (AP) -- Lawyers in the penalty-phase retrial for convicted murderer Jodi Arias ended another day of court proceedings without choosing a jury, and the hearing won't resume until next week.

Judge Sherry Stephens held closed-door discussions Wednesday with prosecutors and Arias' defense attorneys regarding potential jurors.

About 175 remain out of an initial group of 400 who were brought in for questioning for last week.

Attorneys on Monday questioned the possible jurors about their views on the death penalty and whether they can fairly judge the evidence.

The court will return next Tuesday. Arias' retrial is expected to last into December.

Arias was convicted of murder last year in the 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend in Arizona, but jurors couldn't agree on a sentence.
