Jury selection resumes in the penalty retrial of convicted murderer Jodi Arias as prosecutors try again for a death sentence.

On Monday, roughly a third of 300 potential jurors were dismissed after telling a judge they had seen too much media coverage of her first trial to be impartial or had already made up their minds about her punishment.

Another 100 prospective jurors are being called in Wednesday.

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

Prosecutors have one more shot with a new jury to secure the death penalty, otherwise Arias will face life in prison. The case is expected to last into December.
