A jury in Phoenix found Jodi Arias guilty of first degree murder after three days of deliberations in a sensational trial

A crowd of several hundred people waited outside the courthouse for word of the verdict to be announced.

Arias, 32, was accused of killing ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in the shower of his suburban Mesa, Ariz., home in June 2008. Alexander was shot in the head and stabbed and slashed more than two dozen times. Arias’ palm print was found in blood at the gruesome scene, along with nude photos of her and the victim from the day of the killing.

The California woman could face the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder. Jurors also could convict Arias of second-degree murder or manslaughter.
