Utah Boulder vandal's link to Jodi Arias

Utah state park officials are working to determine the type of punishment three men will face for tipping over a 2,000-pound ancient boulder.

The men, who filmed themselves destroying the natural wonder, can be seen in a video posted online cheering when former Scout Leader Glenn Taylor knocks the rock from its perch where it had sat for 170 million years.

We're also learning that Taylor, the man at the center of this illegal stunt, has ties to another high-profile case.

Tom Foreman is OutFront with the story.

Hung jury in Jodi Arias penalty phase

An Arizona jury said it was unable to reach a unanimous agreement on what penalty Jodi Arias should receive for killing her ex-boyfriend.

The hung jury forced the judge to declare a mistrial in the sentencing phase of the case after nearly 14 hours of deliberations.

Arias was convicted of the 2008 murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander after a trial that lasted almost five months. If the prosecution decides to retry the sentencing phase of the case, a new jury will be asked to decide Arias' fate.

Jodi Arias murder trial delves into sex and deceit

For 12 days, Jodi Arias has been on the stand in a sensational murder trial where she is accused of killing her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander in 2008.

It's an unusual case most murder defendants don't even take the stand, let alone sit for 12 days of questioning.

And prosecutors aren't done yet.

Arias has changed her story several times, first claiming she wasn't there, then making up a story about two intruders. Now she says it was self-defense.

Prosecutors grilled Arias Wednesday about the couple's sex life, and Arias' lies.

Maher: Jodi Arias is a storyteller

OutFront tonight: Maureen Maher, Correspondent at "48 Hours Mystery," who interviewed Arias.
