PHOENIX -- A jury has reached a verdict in the Jodi Arias murder case.
The verdict is expected to be read today at 1:30 p.m. Arias, a Salinas native, is charged with killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander.
The jury -- made up of eight men and four women -- heard closing arguments on Friday from both the prosecution and the defense.
Prosecutors described Arias as a manipulative liar who planned the attack, while Arias claimed she killed her boyfriend in self-defense.
According to CBS News, if Arias is sentenced to death, she would join three other women on Arizona's death row.
Arias admitted to killing Alexander on June 4, 2008 after she showed up at his house unannounced. Authorities said Alexander suffered 27 stab wounds, was shot in the head and had his throat slit.
Nude photos of Arias and the victim were found on the day of the killing. Arias' hand print was found in blood at the apartment where Alexander was killed.
According to a TruTV courtroom blog, Arias said at one point she lived with a different ex-boyfriend in Big Sur and worked at Ventana Inn, which she said Alexander got very jealous about.
The Salinas Californian said Arias was born in Salinas and spent some of her childhood in Monterey County
