PHOENIX — Testimony in Jodi Arias' penalty-phase retrial has been delayed.

She announced there had been an emergency but didn't elaborate.
Arias was found guilty of murder last year in the 2008 killing of ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander at his suburban Phoenix home, but jurors deadlocked on whether Arias should be sentenced to death or life in prison.
Prosecutors now trying to secure a death sentence from a new jury. Otherwise, Arias faces life in prison.
