  • Jodi Arias gave an 19-minute speech Thursday, asking the jury to spare her life
  • Watch it in its entirety here

Call it Jodi Arias' last stand: The convicted murder had her chance to directly address the jury and try to save her life. She took around 19 minutes to address the jury.

She talked about her family, her past, her art, and what she hopes lies ahead. She talked about wanting the death penalty before, but how she now believes she can contribute more with a life sentence. She also explained why she talked about suicide, but never went through with it.

In addition, she unveiled a t-shirt she designed for domestic violence charities.  

The jury must decided if the convicted murderer will get life in prison or the death penalty.  

She was convicted of the murder of Travis Alexander in 2008. The jury in the case found the killing "especially cruel," which gave her the possibility of death.
