People wait in line for hours outside the court house each day for a chance at one of a handful of seats open to the public in Jodi Arias' ongoing murder trial in Arizona.

The spectator crowds are growing steadily for the trial and seats are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Desiree Lee, a regular attendee of the trial, said another woman had traveled from Michigan to see the trial but couldn't get a seat because she was too far back in line. So Lee sold her spot to this woman for $200. The court reprimanded the two women and Lee was told to return the money while that woman was allowed to keep her seat.

Neither woman faces any charges.

Arias faces a potential death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the June 2008 killing of her one-time boyfriend at his suburban Phoenix home.
