PHOENIX - Jurors have found Jodi Arias guilty of first- degree murder of her one-time boyfriend in Arizona.

Arias has been found guilty in the June 2008 killing of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home. Authorities say she 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 it was self-defense.

Testimony began in early January and has been ongoing for nearly four months. Jurors got the case Friday.

The trial has been a made-for-the-tabloids drama, garnering daily coverage by the cable news networks, with of a salacious relationship that ended in a bloody killing.

Arias spent 18 days on the witness stand.
