 A day after a jury found her guilty of first-degree murder in the slaying of her ex-boyfriend, Jodi Arias will return to court Thursday to begin a phase that will move her closer to learning whether she will live or die.

During this part of the proceedings, the so-called "aggravation phase," jurors will take an important step closer to that life or death decision.
