Ariz. woman convicted of first-degree murder

PHOENIX — Jodi Arias was convicted of first-degree murder Wednesday in the killing of her one-time boyfriend in Arizona after a four-month trial that captured headlines with lurid tales of sex, lies, religion, and a salacious relationship that ended in a blood bath.

The jury took about 15 hours to reach its verdict and will return Thursday to begin the next phase of the trial, which could set the stage for her being sentenced to death.
