PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Jurors in the Jodi Arias murder trial will resume deliberations Monday morning.
The California woman is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.
Authorities say she planned the attack in a jealous rage.
Arias initially denied involvement, saying she wasn't there and then saying it was two intruders at the home who killed Alexander.
She now says it was self-defense.
If convicted of first-degree murder, she faces a potential death sentence or life in prison.
Jurors got the case Friday after hearing closing arguments from both sides.
During the four-month long trial, much of the focus has been on Arias and her life.
On Sunday night, a vigil was held for the victim in this case - focusing on the life Alexander lived and was never able to fulfill.
"He was a very giving person, and thoughtful," said Clancy Talbot a friend of Alexander's. "And, always wanted to make sure he left people better than when he met them."
Alexander's brutal death, admittedly at the hands of his ex-girlfriend Jodi Arias, has left a painful void in the lives of his family and friends.
"He was just full of energy and enthusiasm and adventuresome spirit," said Dave Hall a friend of Alexander's for about seven years. "And, ya know, we lost a great person."
So, it was moving to see the dozens of strangers who came to Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza in Phoenix Sunday night to honor the memory of their friend.
"Half the people ditch out between the funeral and the graveside service (generally speaking) just depending on the weather," said Hall. "So, this is incredible."
Those who attend the candlelight vigil said they want the victim, at the center of the murder trial, to be remembered.
And, they want Alexander's family to know they care.
"We're all sending our prayers and our love and our support for that family," said Channon Gulbronsen.
Kelly Fowler, another Alexander family supporter said, "I've cried with them many times. And, on Friday, when (prosecutor) Juan Martinez was doing his closing - (it) just intensified. My heart goes out to them."
Mikal Ann Dillion, who told CBS5 News she sat through almost every day of the trial, was disappointed more of her fellow court watchers didn't come.
"I think they should be ashamed of taking up space for people who couldn't get in - and, then, they don't come here and show their respect for Travis," she said.
But those who were there, to light a candle for Alexander, made a wish for swift justice.
"Just remember Travis for who he is," said Clancy. "And the focus right now needs to be praying and making sure everyone is praying for a just verdict."
CBS5 News asked her what that would be.
"The death penalty - first degree," she said without flinching.
