Arias' words in 2008 jailhouse interview come back to haunt her

Updated:
PHOENIX -

"I've done many things that are shameful, but this is not one of them."

Jodi Arias' calm composure was on display during a 2008 jailhouse interview.  She was arrested for the brutal murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander.

Question: "Did you kill Travis Alexander?"

Jodi: "Absolutely not.  No, I had no part in it... I would be shaking in my boots right now if I had to answer to such a heinous crime."

"I didn't commit a murder. I didn't hurt Travis. I would never hurt Travis," she said. "No jury is going to convict me. I am innocent, and you can mark my words on that."

Although she claimed for a year and a half that she was innocent -- that two masked intruders killed Travis -- all the evidence mounted and Arias later admitted to killing him in self-defense.

However, that story didn't fly with jurors.

Wednesday, Arias was convicted of first degree murder after a 5-month trial. Now, the question is, will she be sentenced to death?

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
