The jury reached a verdict of First Degree Murder in the Jodi Arias murder trial.

If the 32-year-old Arias is sentenced to death, she would join three other women on Arizona’s death row.
A woman hasn’t been executed in Arizona since 1930. Eva Dugan was a former Alaskan cabaret performer convicted of killing an elderly Tucson rancher for whom she worked as a housekeeper.

Jurors have been deliberating for the last four days after getting the case late Friday afternoon.

The 32-year-old was charged with first-degree murder in the June 2008 death of her one-time boyfriend Travis Alexander at his Mesa home. He was shot in the head and stabbed and slashed nearly 30 times. Jurors also have the option to convict her of second-degree murder or manslaughter.

Prosecutors have alleged Arias 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 she killed Alexander in self-defense.

Testimony in the case began in early January, and Arias spent 18 days on the witness stand beginning in early February.
