It was judgment day for Jodi Arias.

Nearly five years after she admittedly killed her lover Travis Alexander, Arias was convicted of first-degree murder in the sensational Arizona trial.

Watch how it went down – and how she reacted.

Arias, 32, was charged with first-degree capital murder in the killing of Alexander, who was shot and stabbed 27 times in his house. The trial, televised live on HLN, featured graphic testimony about their sex lives and brutal crime-scene photos.

The prosecution portrayed the beautiful brunette Arias as a spiteful ex-girlfriend who planned the vicious murder out of jealousy; Arias testified in her own defense, saying she killed Alexander in self-defense but forgot much of what happened.

The case has inspired a TV movie – in the works even before the verdict with Tania Raymonde of Lost cast as Arias.
