On May 3, 2013, the Jodi Arias Arizona murder case was given to the jury, who will now decide if she is guilty of murdering her former lover, Travis Alexander, in cold blood. According to AZ Family, Alexander’s friends are more than anxious to learn the jury’s final verdict.
A close friend of Alexander’s, Clancy Talbot, told AZ Family, “ It’s just very emotional… There are so many mixed emotions… a lot of praying will happen this weekend.”

She said that family and friends of Alexander’s also found it hard to endure graphic testimony regarding how he was killed and were troubled by hearing witnesses give testimony that tarnished his character.

Arias, 32, is on trial for the 2008 murder of Alexander, 30. He was stabbed 27 times, his throat was slashed from ear-to-ear, and he was shot in the head. She claims she killed him in self-defense after he became violent with her.
The jury is slated to resume deliberations on Monday. If they decide she is guilty of Alexander’s murder, Arias could be sentenced to death.
