The verdict is in, and Jodi Arias has been found guilty of murder.

A jury found that she killed ex Travis Alexander in cold blood.

Jodi Arias: Guilty!

Jordi Arias showed little emotion as the decision was read by a court clerk. As the jurors were polled, each affirming the guilty verdict, she fought back tears.

Outside the Arizona courtroom, the gathered crowd cheered.

Alexander's family hugged each other after the verdict was read, a measure of closure at last after a grisly death and a sensational criminal proceeding.

The trial now enters a penalty phase, with additional testimony and arguments, to decide if Arias should receive life in prison or the death penalty.

The case featured a beautiful photographer who changed her story twice, ultimately claiming self-defense in the death of the man she once loved.

Up against her was a bulldog prosecutor determined to prove Arias was a spiteful, jealous ex-girlfriend and vicious murderer, not to mention a pathological liar.

"Throughout the whole thing, she has lied," prosecutor Juan Martinez told the jury last Friday in closing arguments, and clearly, they believed him.
