Arias found guilty in murder trial

Jodi Arias was on trial for the June 2008 death of Travis Alexander, in Mesa, Arizona.

Arias was charged in the killing of Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home. Authorities say she planned the attack in a jealous rage. Arias initially denied involvement, then blamed it on two masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said she killed Alexander in self-defense.

Testimony began in early January, with Arias eventually spending 18 days on the witness stand. Jurors got the case Friday.

The trial has been a made-for-the-tabloids drama, garnering daily coverage by the cable news networks, with tales of lurid sex, lies and death, nude photos and accounts of a salacious relationship that ended in a bloody killing.
