First more of that stunning courtroom interview with jodi arias just moments after she was convicted. Jurors going back to work today as we told you to consider her fate and abc's ryan owens is back with us from phoenix right now. Good morning, again, ryan. Reporter: Good morning, robin. Jodi arias likes to talk. We already knew that. She gave a ton of interviews right after she was arrested. Some of them were played for the jury.
