(PHOENIX, AZ)  —   Jodi Arias was found guilty today of first-degree premeditated murder, leaving open the possibility that she could be sentenced to death.

Arias, 32, had claimed that she killed Alexander in self-defense after he flew into a violent rage during an argument in his Mesa, Ariz., home. Her attorneys had urged the jury to find Arias guilty of manslaughter instead of murder.

Testimony in the trial lasted four months, beginning in January, and wrapped up on Friday, May 3.

The jury, made up of eight men and four women, deliberated for two and a half days
