PHOENIX -- A jury in Phoenix was to resume deliberations Monday in the penalty phase of an Arizona woman convicted of beating her husband to death with a hammer.

The Maricopa County Superior Court jury began deliberating in the first-degree murder case of Marissa Devault after hearing closing arguments Tuesday.

The jury must next decide whether to imprison her for life or impose a death sentence for the January 2009 killing of Dale Harrell.
