PHOENIX - Jurors have reached a verdict in the trial of Jodi Arias, who is accused of murdering her one-time boyfriend in Arizona.
Arias is charged with first-degree murder in the June 2008 killing of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home. Authorities say she planned the attack in a jealous rage.
Arias initially denied involvement, then blamed it on two masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said it was self-defense.
Testimony began in early January and has been ongoing for nearly four months. Jurors got the case Friday.
The trial has been a made-for-the-tabloids drama, garnering daily coverage by the cable news networks, with of a salacious relationship that ended in a bloody killing.
Arias spent 18 days on the witness stand.
