In 2008, Arias killed her ex-boyfriend after a tumultuous relationship. According to the prosecution, she killed him in a jealous rage because he wanted to end their relationship.
Before fleeing and driving to Utah to meet up with another potential love interest, she shot Alexander and stabbed him close to 30 times in his suburban Phoenix home. After being detained for several weeks, she initially denied any involvement.
After, she gave two television interviews in which she bizarrely described masked intruders breaking into the House and killing Alexander.

After Arias gave a jailhouse interview minutes after being found guilty of murder and said to a local TV reporter that she preferred the death penalty to life in prison, interest in the case grew.
She admitted that since longevity runs in her family and she doesn’t want to live out the remainder of her natural life in one place, she would prefer to pass away sooner rather than later.
