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.

Stabbing someone 28 times after shooting them.... there's no justification for that at all! Justice was served!

Chances are it will be life without parole. They are filing a wrongfull death civil suite. That means that any money Arias expected to get from this all goes to the family. Not a penny for her that she expected.

So much for "no jury will ever convict me you can mark my words on that". I'm innocent.


Guilty of 1st degree murder. You are convicted Murder 1. You can mark the jurys words on that.

Jodi strikes me as just one of those immature, super needy low self esteem women who just can't take a hint that a relationship is OVER.

If she kept on using kinky sex as a lure to keep him interested it just doesn't work. The more whorish and needy a woman gets the less interested the guy will get.

Some guys will use a woman for sex though. We just can't help themselves sometimes. Sex can be a drug for us and women know it. Sex addiction is real. Eventually, a guy thinks of a girl like Jodi as like a better alternative to masturbation if he doesn't have another girl around who will screw him.

Why the heck couldn't Jodi just forget about Travis and MOVE ON to find some other guy? Instead, she killed him because she couldn't get what she wanted ... brutally.
