It didn't take long for a jury on Wednesday to conclude that how Mesa resident Travis Alexander died in 2008, was indeed cruel.

Jurors took just over three hours to come to the conclusion after now famed prosecutor Juan Martinez showed how each knife wound, gunshot wound, and cut throat caused Alexander, who was dating Jodi Arias.

Arias has been convicted of first-degree murder, and now that the jury has found the crime to be cruel, they will now hear evidence from the state on why she should be sentenced to death.

The defense is expected to argue why she should be spared a death penalty sentence, which would mean life in prison.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
