"My attorneys made decisions not to call certain individuals that I feel would have helped me. And I'm not blaming them," Arias said. "There have been a lot of things I don't agree with that my defense attorneys have done or that they've advised me to do. But for the most part, I take their advice."

Arias' case has drawn many connections to the Casey Anthony murder trial. Anthony was acquitted in 2011 of murder in the death of her daughter, Caylee Anthony; much like Arias, she initially told elaborate lies and then claimed at trial that she was a victim.

Many in America expressed outrage, feeling the jury made the wrong decision letting Anthony walk free.

Arias said the attention around the Anthony case may have influenced her first-degree murder conviction.

"I think some, yes. All? No. But I don't think that may be in the minds of some people," Arias said.

If Arias is sent to death row, she will be transferred to Arizona's state prison complex at Perryville. Arias would become the third woman on Arizona's death row.

"I try not to think about it. But if I'm confronted with that reality, then I will deal with it," she said.
