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.

Now they can stop dressing her like an old prune. Nobody boutht that **** anyways!! I believe Travis was a douchebag and treated her bad, but honey, you could have walked about. It does not justify what you did.

Tmz should get the fact that it was 29 stabbings right too. If we're talking about facts. Why do i know more about this case then the media? Also he was left for dead for 5 days. Thats why travis looked blue in his autopsy photos. :( R.I.P Travis Alexander

Her family should be imprisoned for pretending she was a great "human". Look at her myspace page.

OMG!! Jury, be smart and sentence her to life in prison. That is a far worse punishment than death. Death is too good for her. Make her suffer for the rest of her life.

Nearly every media outlet described Jodi's reaction to the verdict as emotionless, not even flinching, cold, etc. That's such bull****. Who were THEY looking at? What i saw, (and what anyone else with eyes in their head can clearly see is that she was emotional when she heard the verdict. Look at her facial expressions. You could see her eyes well up and her lips clinch as if to hold back from crying. It's just really pathetic the lengths the media will go to influence people's perceptions of reality. True, she killed Travis. But none of us were there when it happened so none of us actually knows what caused her to snap and kill him. It's not unheard of for battered people to snap and lose their minds and kill their abuser and afterward, change their stories out of fear and the realization of what they've done. If she was defending herself, then I say the dude deserved what he got. So, all of you who are showing so much hostility toward this woman are a bunch of asshats.

Arizona takes an average of 12 years before the prisoner is put to death. If Jodi gets death, that would kill two birds with one stone. She would still be in prison for approx. 12 years thinking of the day she will die. Let her be mentally tormented.

She got what she deserves! Next step for this monster is death! Give her what she wants even though life in prison without parole is also a fitting punishment for her!
