Jodi Arias: Boyfriend Killer Pleads For Life

The woman guilty of killing her ex-boyfriend has told the jury in charge of her fate why she should be spared the death penalty.

It was unknown whether Jodi Arias, who at one point this month said in an interview she would prefer to be executed than to spend a long life in prison, would actually ask for a death sentence for the killing of former lover Travis Alexander.

But she reversed course on Tuesday, telling jurors she had "lacked perspective" when she made those statements, and pleaded that her family be spared the pain of an execution.
