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.

I think there is a good chance they will give this girl the death penalty because there was so much overkill in the murder and also so much premeditation. The only thing she has going for her is that she is a woman and, even more plus, a white woman. If it were a white boy or black person, they would definitely be getting the ol' lethal.

This case has definitely been THE obsession of that cable channel HLN.

I'm sure they'll have at least 5 hours of continuous coverage .... all Jodi and Travis all night long ... every kinky sex charged detail and every blood spattered gruesome death scene detail.

Finally! A jury that got it right. This woman is a psychopath to be able to do what she did and then casually go on with her life as if nothing happened. I am rooting for the death penalty, not because I want her to die (Too easy) but because death row inmates have a much harder time in prison than the normal prison population. She should suffer everyday for what she did.

I have no idea why this trial received so much attention. Her looks was slightly above average at best.

Well, a jury finally got it right, not like OJ and Casey Anthony. I think she thought she was going to get away with it. Not so, Jodi. Congrats to Juan.
