breaking news

050813_jodi_arias_fox_launchA jury has found Jodi Arias GUILTY of murdering her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander back in 2008.

Arias tried to fight back tears when the verdict was read ... and overall showed minimal emotion.

Members of the victim's family were seen crying in the courtroom ... lots of emotion.

People inside the court said jurors appeared stoic when the verdict was read.

Officials say Alexander sustained nearly 30 stab wounds and a gunshot wound on June 4, 2008.  Arias had argued she killed Alexander in self-defense.

It took the jury 15 hours and 5 minutes to reach the verdict.

Now, the jury will be tasked with deciding if Jodi should face the death penalty for her crime.

Outside of the courtroom, people were celebrating ... cheering, clapping, crying. 

The Arias murder trial dominated the media ... and if you don't know who she is, you clearly haven't been watching CNN, HLN, Fox News, 48 Hours, Inside Edition, ESPN, Cartoon Network, etc, etc, etc.

Arizona jurors get it right! I hope her guilty verdict brings Travis' family a small measure of relief from their pain.

Celebrities Suck    

I was losing faith on the court system the after OJ Simpson, Cassi Anthony's case. Justice was served... Although, the system still scks b@lls when it comes to the way the they handle celebrity cases. The system needs to wake the fck up and stop this celebrity justice crap...

Hope she doesn't get the death penalty. Although seems unlikely in a state were an abysmal sheriff once again won the election.

Looks like they finally convicted the "3 hole wonder" anal sex loving Jodi Arias. I have never heard of a trial that got into so much detail about the sex lives of the people involved.

Hopefully, they totally isolate Jodi from all the other female inmates in prison for the entire time she's in there so she won't be getting any hot lesbo action. She'll have to finger her own @ss I guess.

No more sex for Jodi. You are a crazy biatch psycho killer Jodi. Sorry!
