I would submit that it is VASTLY easier to sit at a computer and proclaim that you would definitely put a woman being to death than to actually be tasked with doing it

I hate it when people denigrate juries because those people have a terrible and very important job to do. They are privy to facts that the public is not, they endure much personal hardship to do their duty and I'm sure the vast majority take their job very seriously.

What all these court shows have effectively done is to make armchair jurors out of the whole country, as well as make criminal proceedings into entertainment, which is really unhealthy IMO.

Movie Lifetime Movie

I figured to mention this here that the Lifetime movie based on her, Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret, will air Saturday, June 22.

Jodi Arias is played by Tania Raymonde (Lost, Texas Chainsaw 3D).

Jodi Arias Murder Conviction: Lifetime Movie Cast Was Glued to Verdict, Actor Playing Travis Alexander "Felt Validated"

Nancy Grace wasn't the only one hanging on every word when Jodi Arias was found guilty of first-degree murder this week.

"Everyone watched it, we had a TV on the set and we stopped filming," Arturio Interian, VP of Original Movies for Lifetime Entertainment Services, which has been developing The Jodi Arias Story since March 2012, exclusively tells E! News.

"It was a very quiet moment. It's a very real and painful story, and we can't forget that a young man was needlessly killed and Jodi threw her life away too. Tania Raymonde, the actress who is playing Jodi, was stunned."

The 25-year-old Switched at Birth star also witnessed, right then and there, her role going from "murder suspect Jodi Arias" to "convicted murderer Jodi Arias."

"It was surreal on the set when the verdict came down," Interian continued. "I have done a lot of true-crime work, but this is the first time I have been filming when this has happened."

Lifetime's true-crime credits, to name just a couple, include Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy and Drew Peterson: Untouchable.

Three jurors from the Jodi Arias trial said the sentencing phase was "absolutely awful" after they were unable agree on whether the woman they had found guilty of first-degree murder should get the death penalty or life in prison.

"We can't come to a decision, and it was gut-wrenching. It was absolutely awful," said Diane Schwartz, a retired 911 operator, who for the duration of the five month trial was known as Juror No. 6.

The jury took a short time to convict Arias of first-degree murder in the 2008 shooting and stabbing death of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, but when it came to the sentencing phase, they were split.

Schwartz, along with fellow jurors Kevin Spellman and Marilou Allen-Coogan, spoke exclusively with ABC News about the grave responsibility that they said ended with a deadlock of eight jurors voting in favor of the death penalty and four supporting life in prison for Arias.

All three said they favored giving Arias the death penalty, however, determining a sentence of life or death for the 32-year-old was their most difficult decision.

"It was a very trying experience," said Spellman, a banker who was known as Juror No. 13. "How do you weigh a person's life?"

"For me, it was the brutality and then the way that he was treated after death and shoved in a shower and left," Allen-Coogan added. "That's pretty brutal."

I agree the case isn't over yet and movie is coming out. ISn't there any time limits on movies on events like this. How long did we wait for the Diane Broadwick. story ?? Merdith Baxter and Steven Collins starred in it. I did read there will be a Anna Nicole Smith movie on the tv screen soon. You can't get away from the stories.

That was called "The BETTY Broderick story: A Woman Scorned. It was a two part movie. That woman was a total nut!

As for the Jodi Arias movie, I think they might wanna wait until the penalty phase is over in mid July. But they do know she was convicted and "GUILTY" so I guess that's the main thing for them.

i think the problem is that the judgement and sentencing part of the system is flawed in the respect that after months of asking a jury to be impartial, logical and make their decision relying solely on their interpretation of the facts and evidence and how it was presented, all of a sudden you are asking them to turn around and make a completely subjective judgement call; judges (or some level of justice) needs to set hard, easily identifiable guidelines for what determines the appropriate sentencing in a given case.

in this case, the guilty had clearly planned out the crime in a premeditated manner, the method in which the murder was carried out was particularly gruesome and vindictive, and clearly their would be no chance of rehabilitating her or her ever being a productive member of society (even the in-prison society).

The gordian knot here is that even IF she was determined to be someone who could benefit society down the road, the very heinousness of the crime would more than likely stop her from being paroled. Leslie Van Houten has done pretty much everything and beyond when it comes to rehabilitation but because she helped kill Rosemary La Bianca 44 years ago in that awful, awful way, she'll NEVER get out. I think at this point she's even stopped putting her name in for parole.

Default Appeal to Remove Death Penalty Denied

Jodi Arias’ attorneys were denied the chance to have the death penalty taken off the table in Arias’ murder trial, as the Arizona Supreme Court rejected their petition for an appeal.

Arias was convicted of murdering her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, and is facing the possibility of the death penalty. The jury that found her guilty of premeditated murder was split over whether to sentence Arias to death. The prosecutor now must decide whether to find a new jury to decide Arias’ punishment.

During the trial, however, Arias’ attorneys appealed to Arizona’s highest court to reconsider whether Arias should face the death penalty. They claimed that the prosecution’s testimony about the way Alexander died, and how cruel it was, was inconsistent.

I think things are starting to look up for the victim and his family after all.

Tonight, Nancy Grace says that the Jodi Arias defense team wants to make a new claim that Jodi Arias is mentally ill.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez will not be deterred. He is set to go again in four weeks.

GO, JUAN!

“Self defense” is a term Jodi Arias seems to be very familiar with – as RadarOnline.com has learned that the notorious murder defendant has used the excuse to try and wriggle out of even more trouble that she’s gotten into from behind bars since brutally butchering Travis Alexander.

According to a discipline report obtained by HLN, the 32-year-old femme fatale was embroiled in a fight with her cell mate at the Estrella Jail in Phoenix, Arizona, and when the pair was eventually separated and questioned over the incident, Jodi claimed she was acting in self defense and simply protecting herself from the aggressor.

During the altercation the fellow inmate pushed Jodi against a wall and then kicked her, according to prison records.

The story sounds eerily similar to Jodi’s repeated claims of abuse at the hands of both former boyfriend Travis and her parents, Sandy and William Arias, which she has detailed extensively – and often tearfully – on the stand during her ongoing testimony.

Also on the rap sheet built up during the four-and-a-half years that she has been awaiting trial are bizarre violations of prison policy such as hiding pens under her sink in May 2009, possessing 19 unauthorized pictures in January 2010, disobeying her instructor, possessing unauthorized creams – including anti-itch, anti-fungal and acne lotion – and the discovery of even more pens in shampoo bottles and under her bunk.

Movie

Did anyone else get to see the Lifetime flick that aired last night?

The reviews have been mostly leaning towards positive with some saying that it was done way too soon.
