Maricopa County Superior Court was silent Wednesday afternoon.
And then: "We the jury duly impaneled and sworn in the above and entitled action, upon our oath, do find the defendant as to count one, first-degree murder, guilty."
The voice that delivered the news of Jodi Arias' murder conviction to America, to a packed courtroom and to Arias herself was not that of Judge Sherry Stephens or the jury foreman. It belonged to Christina McCain.
McCain is the clerk of Maricopa County Superior Court, and in that role, it's her job to read juries' verdicts. She's been doing it for four years, but says the Arias verdict was different.
"All the media attention made me nervous," she said. "I'm glad it wasn't a hung jury."
McCain ended up having no reason to worry about nerves, reading the verdict without issue. You can watch the dramatic moment Arias learned her fate right here.
