Finally after a  long drawn out trial that ended deadlocked in the sentencing portion ,  a deadlocked jury could not come up with an equitable agreement regarding Ms. Arias's sentence for the murder of her on again- off again" dating partner" Travis Alexander, a Judge has handed down a sentence to Jodi Arias already convicted of murdering Travis Alexander bypassing the Jury in this unusual murder case.

The sentence has been a long time coming;

;Last year the Jury after an arduous and emotional trial the beleaguered Jury hung on the sentencing portion of the murder trial, which is in itself like a mini trial.

 The trial was televised and given massive media attention, likely due to peripheral issues such as the fact that Ms. Arias is a psychopath a remorseless killer and happens to be somewhat attractive.

To me these should not be the reason a murder case gets a bombardment of media attention whilst the millions of other murdered women each year often barely get a mention.
Sadly this murder will likely be remembered for details such as the collection of photos that were retrieved from the then deceased Mr. Alexander's washing machine yes you read correctly) where Arias tried in vain to destroy evidence placing her at the scene of the bloody crime and even caught a few shots of her foot and leg in what appears to be her dragging the then deceased Travis into his shower where he was found days later by worried friends.

There were also the pictures that Arias and Alexander took of each other during that day's sexual romp which the  media had a veritable fest over.  become this notorious is because Arias is attractive female and female psychopaths are much rarer than their male counterpart's.

Had Jodi Arias been extremely plain and had there been no titillating photos and tapes I doubt very much that this case would be such an interest to the likes of  Nancy Grace every national print and web  publication with their  respective tweeters et al....

I am glad that some modicum of justice was doled out  by a Judge for MS Arias's Sentencing although I strongly feel that with Arias's clear Borderline Personality Disorder (ie attachment issues being drawn to unattainable partners and a history of unstable relationships  usually stemming from low self esteem often fostered by an abusive, absent or negligent father figure ie  Read Lenore Walker chronicles men who batter murder and predate +-x 0
+--- in this case packaged in a child like" crazy like a fox" attractive seductive woman, this was a combustible union deemed to end badly especially after the first signs of stalking and vandalism ( Arias is said to have slit Travis's tires while he was in his condo with a another date.)

Has Justice been served?

I don' believe so the aggravating factors of pre meditation were abundant.

Bringing a rental car dying her hair and the missing gun reported stolen from her grandmothers does bring about strong feelings Ms Arias showed a blatant disregard for the law the Police she clearly went to Travis's Condo with a disguise a rented car and brought a gun
according to all accounts Travis owned no guns

She lied to Police for YEARS  Add to this three versions of what happened on the day/ evening of Travis's murder. She showed an overt dispassion  during her first police questioning by standing on her head whilst she believed she was alone in the interrogation room  with no prying eyes.

She was so unfettered by the situation that  she was in ; ie a man she'd just made love to days earlier had been found brutally murdered in his condo bathroom and she was standing on her head in the questioning room the moment the detectives left.

That was the real Jodi Arias. The same one that infortmed a journalist several years ago

that" there wasn't a Jury that would convict her"
