Jodi Arias' attorneys have tried motions for mistrials, allegations of prosecutorial misconduct, appeals, even efforts to quit the case entirely.
After losing every time inside the courtroom, this week they took their case to the court of public opinion as prosecutors consider whether to continue to pursue the death penalty.
In a statement to The Arizona Republic, defense attorneys Kirk Nurmi and Jennifer Willmott questioned whether that would be a good use of taxpayer money. The state has already spent about $1.7 million on Arias' defense.
Experts say the move to use the state's largest newspaper to influence public opinion was stellar as Arias tries to get the death penalty off the table.
She was convicted May 8 of murder, but the jury deadlocked on a life or death sentence.
