Jodi Arias was found guilty of 1st Degree Premeditated Murder with seven jurors also finding her guilty of felony murder in the death of her boyfriend, Travis Alexander.

The much-publicized trial in Arizona was unusual in that jurors were allowed to directly ask questions of the defendant.

She brutally murdered her boyfriend about four years ago. She shot him and stabbed him 27 times, he was almost beheaded. It appeared to be a jealous rage but her case was self-defense.

She said he abused her and she was acting in self-defense though there wasn’t a mark on her after she killed him.

She had originally denied killing him and later said no jury would ever convict her.

Their sexual life was graphically displayed during the trial and it was used to demonize Mr. Alexander who was a Mormon and not supposed to engage in sexual flings.

There was no evidence Mr. Alexander was ever abusive towards her or anyone.

Before she killed Mr. Alexander, she found out that he was going away with another woman.

She took photos of him in the shower shortly before she killed him:

I don’t know why this is a national story while the Kermit Gosnell trial is local since Gosnell murdered far more people other than the media decides what we will care about.
