PHOENIX (AP) -- The jury has found Jodi Arias guilty of first-degree murder in the death of her one-time boyfriend in Arizona.

Arias initially denied involvement and later blamed the killing on masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said she killed Travis Alexander in self-defense.

After a four-month trial that included graphic details of their sexual escapades and photos of Alexander just after his death, jurors began deliberating Friday afternoon.
