The trial has been a tough case for everyone involved, but the attorneys representing the state and Jodi Arias each had their work cut out for them.
On the prosecution side, you'll find deputy county attorney Juan Martinez.
He's made it his mission to show jurors Arias is a liar.
Martinez focused on a few key facts. At one point, Arias had three gas cans - enough to drive through Arizona without having to stop to fill up. She said she returned one can but Martinez said that's a lie. It's an element that could prove premeditation.
Another key point is that brutality of the crime. The last thing Martinez showed the jurors was the gruesome autopsy photos taken of Alexander. He wanted to remind them exactly what Arias did the day she admits she killed him.
An expert witness for the prosecution said Arias has borderline personality disorder.
Martinez made sure jurors knew how often Arias has changed her story and about all the little things she's lied about along the way, hoping to prove to them that she can't be trusted.
The defense tried to shift the blame and the focus.
They claim Arias was a battered woman that Alexander was physically abusive and sexually manipulative and that Arias killed him in self-defense.
The defense's expert witness said Arias had post traumatic stress disorder.
The defense's case brought in some of the most sexually explicit graphic testimony ever heard, a phone sex tape and nude photos of both Arias and Alexander.
Kirk Nurmi and Jennifer Willmott tried to show the jury Arias' sensitive side.
They talked about her passion for photography and shared journal entries where she wrote about how much she loved Alexander.
In a rare move in such a high profile trial, Arias took the stand in her own defense.
She spent 18 days trying to convince the jury she doesn't deserve the death penalty.
