Juror's husband: 'She felt like she was being assaulted'

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

CBS 5 News spoke with the husband of the 12th juror, the one holdout against the death penalty for Jodi Arias.

The judge in the penalty phase retrial for Jodi Arias announced a mistrial late Thursday morning.

She said the jury could not reach a unanimous decision. They were 11-1 for the death penalty.

The husband of the juror who wanted life in prison for Arias asked that his identity not be released since he says his family is already receiving threats.

Here is the full transcript:

CBS 5 News' Greg Argos: Are you her husband?

Husband: I am

Argos: And she was part of the jury?

Husband: She was.

Argos: Do you happen to know - was she the one that held out for the decision today?

Husband: She was.

Argos:  Did she tell you what the feeling was like inside of that jury room?

Husband: Yeah, she said she felt like she was being assaulted by all the other jurors ... trying to get her to go the other way. She held strong to her beliefs and I'm proud of her for that.

Argos: Is it a religious belief she had, or why?

Husband: No, it isn't. She's not opposed to the death penalty. She just didn't believe it was warranted here.

Argos: And she still sticks by her decision?

Husband: Absolutely, she does.
