On May 8, after months of testimony, the jury found Jodi Arias guilty of the first degree murder of her former boyfriend Travis Alexander. Now the nation is waiting to see if Jodi Arias will be sentenced to death for her crime.

In 2008, Travis Alexander was brutally murdered. His throat was slashed, he was shot in the head and stabbed repeatedly. Alexander's former girlfriend Jodi Arias has been convicted of killing him. The Jodi Arias trial has gained massive attention from the media and experts have weighed in about who the real Jodi Arias is.

Jodi Arias was born in 1980 in Salinas California. She has a diverse background including Mexican, German and English. 

Jodi Arias' father is Latino. She is a high school dropout and an amateur photographer. In fact photos Arias took the night Travis Alexander was killed would prove to be damning evidence against her.

When police initially questioned Arias, she told them she had nothing to do with the death of Travis Alexander.

"If I did that I'd be fully ready to face the consequences," Arias told the police when they began to suspect her. "I am all for the Ten Commandments, thou shalt not kill."

Then Arias changed her story saying that the night Alexander was killed the pair had sex, took graphic photos and later on in the evening a pair of masked intruders broke in and killed Travis Alexander leaving Arias alive and unharmed.

The police had finally had enough of Arias changing her story and confronted her about her lies. Jodi Arias later admitted to killing Travis Alexander in self-defense. While testifying at her trial, Jodi Arias told the prosecution she did not remember stabbing, shooting and cutting the throat of Travis Alexander.

All Arias said she remembered was that Alexander began to attack her after she accidentally dropped his new camera.

Jodi Arias' behavior during the investigation and her trial have had experts and people following the case wondering about Arias' state of mind.

Carole Lieberman, M.D., forensic psychiatrist, expert witness, and author of "Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets" spoke with the Latin Times and gave her expert opinion of the case and Arias' personality.

While Dr. Lieberman never examined Jodi Arias personally she was able to comment on Arias based on her education and experience as an expert witness in other cases.

The Latin Times asked Dr. Lieberman to assess Jodi Arias' personality based on what she has seen.

"Jodi Arias fits the exact description of the 'Bad Girl Scorned' type of woman that I write about in my book," Dr. Lieberman told the Latin Times, 

"I've described 'Bad Girl Scorned' as a woman who, because of childhood problems, including feeling unloved by her father, develops fear of abandonment," Dr. Lieberman explained. "When she senses that a man is about to abandon her she stalks him-just like Jodi did when Travis originally wanted to break up with her."

Dr. Lieberman said that when Jodi Arias Realized Travis Alexander would never love her the way she wanted she decided to take revenge.

"Jodi realized it was the end of their relationship. Enraged, she made it the end of the line for [Travis]," Dr. Lieberman told the Latin Times.

The jury in the Jodi Arias trial is left with the task of deciding whether or not the convicted killer will receive the death penalty. After Arias was found guilty she went on TV and told reporters she wanted the death penalty because to her death is the ultimate freedom.

"When Jodi said she wanted the death penalty, at least for the moment she meant it," Dr. Lieberman said. "She wants to make the most of her 15-minutes of fame and going out via the death penalty would be the most dramatic ending she could envision."

The jury was supposed to hear from the defense team today (May 20) in a bid to spare Arias' life. A childhood friend of Arias was supposed to testify on her behalf but backed out because she had been receiving death threats, ABC News reports.

The Jodi Arias saga will continue tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. Jodi Arias is scheduled to give her final statement to the jury. Whether or not she will once again ask for death is yet to be seen.
