    Guilty. If there was something more guilty than guilty she'd be that.

    That's a given; the question for the jury is which degree of murder and will the death penalty apply.

    Ok, I've never done anything beyond viewing headlines for this trial. What's the big deal about it?

    She stabbed him about 30 times then shot him in the head. Initially she claimed someone else did it then changed her story to self defense. I think the murder was in 2008.

    The majority of the trial centered on their sex life with recordings of conversations that she made for some reason.

    I don't know why CNN has focused so much coverage on this, but maybe it's because you have a hot-chick who's a whack and a sexual freak and killed the dude out of jealously.

    Figured as much. I assumed they had released an upskirt shot from the interrogation or something. Were they going to arrest her for smoking?

    I agree. It's good that we keep them around, on the off chance that they can be rehabilitated, or they end up being innocent. But in the meantime, can we not spend so much ****ing money on these ***holes?

    To protect the wrongly accused sometimes you have to go farther than would otherwise seem reasonable for the guilty.

    Thats what a court of law is for....i dont think those that have been proven guilty in a court of law should be given multiple appeals to the death penalty...especially when they arent the ones paying for it IMO

    If court decisions were accurate 100% of the time with no exceptions maybe, but that is not going to happen.

    Re: Jury Reaches Verdict in Arias Trial

    She deserves the death penalty for sure. That woman is a cold blooded killer who has absolutely no remorse for what she did. I don't know how anyone can claim self defense when they stabbed the victim 30+ times and shot him in the head. There is most likely not a single word that came out of her mouth the entire trial that wasn't a lie.

    While this is true and you have a valid point I think the system is unfairly balanced in favor of the defendants. If a defendant is convicted they can appeal multiple times to multiple levels of the court system to have their conviction overturned. Those appeals can be for any number of reasons some of which are legitimate and some not so much. Unfortunately the prosecution gets 1 chance (unless there is a mistrial) to make their case and get a conviction. Any number of things can go wrong and 2 perfect examples are OJ and Casey Anthony. Both are guilty of murder and yet they walked out of court free after their trials. What a great legal system we have.

    "Judge Belvin Perry told NBC's Today show on Monday that he believes there was sufficient evidence for a first-degree murder conviction, even though much of it was circumstantial."

    She's cost the tax payers $1.4 million.

    Her punishments should be as follows:

    Work off that debt cleaning sewers and scraping gum off of city sidewalks using those high-powered steam gum melter deals they use in New York.

    Solitary confinement for the remainder of her life.
