Thousands of people around the world have been glued to their television and following the first-degree murder trial of Jodi Arias, a photographer who has confessed to killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. Arias committed the horrific crime of shooting him in the head, stabbing him at least 27 times and slitting his throat from ear to ear in his Mesa, Ariz. home in June, 2008.

Arias, 32, gave three different versions of how Alexander was killed until she finally confessed she did it as an act of self-defense. Now Arias faces the death penalty if she is charged with his murder. The trial is now underway in its ninth week - it began on Jan. 2.

The prosecution has presented substantial evidence since the trial began in the Maricopa County courtroom. Key evidence included text messages, crime scene photos and images that were taken accidentally on Alexander's camera as the crime occurred.

Prosecutors have focused on the evidence and Arias' inconsistencies in her stories with her lies to prove she was jealous that he began dating other people so she murdered him in cold blood while her defense attorneys have relied on her testimonies to help fight for her life. The defense has been using recorded phone conversations with text messages to prove that Alexander, a religious 30-year-old Mormon and motivational speaker, had a devious side who was obsessed with sex and used her.

Arias first told Arizona police that she was not there when he was killed. Then she said he was killed by intruders who made her promise not to say what she saw and that she escaped. Her final story was a confession that she killed Alexander but as an act of self-defense.

While most find Arias' crime horrific, others feel sorry for the struggling photographer. Fans of Arias have posted a website where they post daily inspirational quotes to show their support for Arias on JodiAriasisinnocent.com.

90% of nearly 1,000 online voters on WebSleuths selected "Yes, she will be found guilty."

Jose Baez, the defense attorney who represented Casey Anthony, the woman acquitted of murdering her child in 2011 and whom Arias has often been compared to in the media, said ultimately it's up to the prosecution.

"Remember, the state has the ability to put on a rebuttal case," Baez told HuffPost.

A rebuttal phase of a criminal trial is when the state, rather the prosecution, can call in additional witnesses to present additional evidence to refute against what the defense has provided.
