Jurors reach verdict in Jodi Arias trial

PHOENIX (AP) — Jurors reached a verdict today in the trial of Jodi Arias, who is accused of murdering her one-time boyfriend in Arizona.

They reached a decision late this morning, but it has not yet been announced.

Arias is charged with first-degree murder in the June 2008 death of Travis Alexander, a motivational speaker and salesman, at his suburban Phoenix home. Authorities said she planned the attack in a jealous rage after being rejected by the victim while he pursued other women.

Arias initially denied involvement and later blamed the killing on masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said she killed Alexander in self-defense.

Jurors got the case Friday.
