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.

Ooops. Mark my words, Jodi, you are either going to get life in a tiny, foul smelling jail cell in a women's prison or you're gonna get the death penalty.

Girls ur allowed to fantasize about your ex getting what they deserve but the best way to get back is to move on and be happy. If u really were too good for him believe me he'll realize it too late.

I'm glad justice was done. I felt and said all along that she is a cold blooded killer. Death penalty. Why should she get to live when Travis died so young at her hands. This killer--won't say her name, she should just be called killer then Inmate number--should die.

She also slit his throat. I am glad that I was not in the courtroom when the verdict was read because I cheered. A little faith was restored in the judicial system. Now when celebrities are treated the same as the rest of us it will be even better.

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

What? That statement doesn't even make any sense. If she were showing "minimal emotion", you wouldn't have been able to tell that she was fighting back tears. Isn't it necessary to demonize her when she's been found guilty? Doing so is just trashy journalism.
