Arias could face death penalty, jury decides

Jodi Arias could face the death penalty, nearly five years after she stabbed, shot and almost decapitated her ex-boyfriend.

A jury Wednesday found that Arias was "exceptionally cruel" when she murdered Travis Alexander in 2008. That verdict is a key step that makes Arias, 32, eligible for the death penalty in the next phase of her trial.

      Joan of Arc was cute and they burnt her on the stake. There is no legal impeiment to executing cute chicks. On the contrary, it will make a great movie: "Jodi does the night guards" or "Last bang before the needle."

    Pretty as poison. All those airheads who have the hots for that Boston bomber pos are just like anyone who seriously thinks this woman is desirable. Darwin awards all around, I would guess. I got sick of this story on the first day.

    Oh, the OJ trial was over a year long of constant daily nonsense. That was a nightmare. I had to listen to way too much of that trial. It's these female criminal trials that are the worst. Just because it's a woman who is slightly pretty the media act like uber-idiots drooling after a ho. Just sick. That one in Florida that killed that baby – Kind of like this trial.

    So a woman kills a man. So what? Why the big deal? The only thing that makes this trial different from the thousands of such female murder trials is that some people can't control themselves in the media when they see a face.
    Very sick people. They obsess and show us the media is nothing but hype-junkies looking for a fix.

    Men are all the same. They use you then after they get what they want they disappear and don't answer the phone.

    Isn't what Arias did to her boyfriend the epitome of "exceptionally cruel"!? Some people are the poster models for the death penalty & I think it should be saved especially for people like Arias & Tsarnaev! It loses its impact when it's used like in Texas, every month!!
