Jodi Arias said in a post-conviction interview with a TV station that she prefers the death penalty over life in prison, according to The Associated Press.
Arias talked to Fox affiliate KSAZ in the courthouse minutes after she was convicted of first-degree murder. With tears in her eyes, she said she feels overwhelmed and that she was surprised because she didn't believe she committed first-degree murder.
She said in the interview that she would "prefer to die sooner than later" and that "death is the ultimate freedom."
