She's the one who went to jail for killing her lover right? I saw the movie about her case not too long ago. Mind you, the media will always be biased and show the characters the way they want people's minds to be swayed, but the fact of the matter is, he did die and there's no denying she was the culprit. From what the movie portrayed, she seemed to be obsessive and jealous of his other love interests and ultimately got vindictive and killed him.

There's an important issue that has me undecided as to whether or not she deserved the death penalty. This is the fact that she is known to suffer from a personality disorder, so was she entirely aware of what she did to him? If she killed him during one of her episodes, then I don't agree with the death penalty since the disorder can take over someone's life and make them do things they would have no recollection of. They would also have had to examine his role in the argument. Was it self defense? Apparently, he was known to be verbally abusive to her and for someone who is suffering from this disorder, it can have detrimental effects.

With that being said, she should still receive a life sentence, but in a closely monitored institution, whether that's prison or an asylum. I wouldn't allow parole considering the violent nature of her crime.

I'm sure it wasn't easy for the jurors to come to a decision as to whether or not to give her the death penalty. I just read it was an 11 to 1 decision, so that last juror basically determined her fate. They must have been under a lot of pressure.

While I'm not against the death penalty and I think this is a horrible crime, I think she may have some mental health problems and I feel the the death penalty should be reserved for those who commit mulitple crimes.

I've read a few articles on this case and seen some of it on CNN. I do believe she knew exactly what she was doing. I'm sorry, but you can look at her and see evil in her eyes. We all get these type of feelings about men or women. I just don't trust anything she says. I wish they would lock her away for life and be done with it. It's so dumb to drag it out longer and waste tax payers money.

First of all thanks so much for all of your replies to my post I am sorry for not responding sooner but I had to work six days last week. I just want to say how bad I feel for his family it was a horrific crime and of coarse no one should suffer and die that way. As far as the death penalty here in Canada we do not have that. Even though there are some cases I wish maybe we did examples like Paul Beanardo or that poor man and his family that was murdered just for his truck Tim Bosma I remember when that happened I just could not get the case out of my head how anyone could be do heartless. I am not sure if I was a juror if I myself could or want to be helping someone die but believe me I think these individuals that did these horrible crimes should sit in a cell for the rest of their lives and as far as Jodi goes I watched the first trial and enough I agree it is a waste of tax payers money and hopefully she will never see day light again. I hope all of these families find some kind of happiness and peace in their lives.

I don't think people really learn from getting the death penalty, maybe it's more so to make an example of them. I'd prefer to see them rot in jail for the rest of their lives. There was something erie about watching the live special made during the lethal injection of Timothy Mcveigh, he himself even said it being televised made him feel like a celebrity. Creepy.
I too live in Canada so death penalty wouldn't happen but a life sentence is necessary for this woman. The victims family deserves some justice. I couldn't imagine if something like that happened to a family member of mine.

Thanks so much for your opinion I agree with you I think it should be life no chance for parole and I watched a special awhile ago when many of the wrong people were but to death and they found the real perpetrators later. I know in this case they have the right person and Jodi seems to love the spotlight and attention so letting her sit in jail is a great punishment for her.
