Jodi Arias Guilty of Murder in the First Degree

May 8, 2013

Jodi Arias has been convicted by a jury in Phoenix of first-degree murder in the stabbing and shooting death of her ex-lover, Travis Alexander.

The next phase of the case will be to determine any aggravating circumstances and whether Arias, 28, who maintained she killed Alexander in self-defense, should be put to death.

The jury received the case Friday after a sensational, four-month trial in which the couple's sex lives were laid out in detail.
