Arizona (CNN) — Jodi Arias has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the brutal killing of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.
The verdict was announced, Wednesday, at 4:30 p.m. ET.
The media circus that was Jodi Arias' murder trial was on its final stretch this week, as the jury began deliberations Friday, May 3, following closing arguments. The jury had been in court since January.
It's been an R-rated story, to say the least, with an abundance of testimony about grizzly violence and, from Arias, details about a kinky sex life she says she shared with Alexander.
The case captured massive interest among Americans. While one part of the country watches CNN's sister network HLN for every twist in the trial, or drives hours to get one of the limited lottery seats in the courtroom (yes, they're now doled out via lottery), another segment of the nation asks, "Jodi who?"
