    Jodi Arias is charged with killing her ex-lover in 2008 in Arizona.

    Anyone watching it or reading about it?

    Arias' defense strategy: Blame the victim? | HLNtv.com

    She killed him in 2008 but the trial just began. She is one truly psychotic killer imo. Calm almost serene demeanor. She has offered, I believe, three different stories over the 4 years.

    1-She was not there when he was killed.

    2-She was there but she ran from the killers and never reported it.

    3-She did kill Travis Alexander in self defense.

    His injuries?

    29 stab wounds, many in the back.
    Shot in the face
    Throat slit ear to ear.

    Yeah, sure sounds like self-defense.

    There is no doubt to me that she killed him...I mean, it reeks of 'crime of passion'...and yes, telling 4 dif stories does NOT help her case at all...she f'ing did it...there shouldnt even be a trial...to me it's a waste of time and money.......lot's of money.
    smh...unreal.

    If she was convinced that if she did not kill him, he would kill her, then her actions were justified, i.e., a valid case of self defense. And, if that was the situation, it doesn't matter how many times she stabbed him, slit his throat, cut his nuts off, or whatever. The 29 stabbings, throat slitting, etc. is consistent with a highly emotional person reacting to just having to defend her own life.

    Telling different stories does not necessarily mean guilt. I have had several murder cases where the defendant told police three or four different stories, not because they were guilty of murder, but because the victim died in their presence, no one else was there, and they thought they might be accused of murder, so they lied in order to distance themselves from the situation just to make sure they didn't get prosecuted for murder.

    Aaah but how often does a killing committed in an alleged self-defense and in such a violent manner as this one apparently was cause the killer to flee and call no one? The trial is damning at this point because of the pictures that have been offered into evidence. There was also no prior evidence of domestic abuse or violence by him. Her? She allegedly sliced his tires. I truly look forward to the defense's case.

    Quite often. In fact, one of the murder cases I had which I referred to in my previous post, inovlved exactly that. The deceased died in a fall from a 10-story hotel room balcony. The defendant was present when it happened. He had nothing to do with the death, but was afraid that he might be accused of something, so he left her room, went to his room and went to sleep. He did not report the death. The next morning, another hotel guest saw the body and called police.

    When the police came, the defendant told them several different stories about what had happened the night before, the first one of which didn't even have him in her room at any time, the second one had him in the room briefly and the final story was the truth, which was that he was with her on the balcony when she fell, but he had nothing to do with her fall. (She was very drunk and was perched on the balony railing and then fallen off on her own.)

    It was a not guilty verdict. And rightly so. This defendant was factually innocent.

    I recently started following the trial. It bothers me that she changed her story three times before she settled on self defense. Were that true, why lie in the first place??

    Jodi Arias is a psychopath

    I believe she planned on killing him or not depending on the answer she got when she asked him about the other girl he was planning a trip to Cancun, to get to know.

    She stole her Grandfathers .25 drove from Cali to Arizona and then to Utah, (I happen to believe that Ryan, her new so called love interest in Utah was suppose to be an alibi, but things got so bloody and messy, it took a little longer than she expected to get there from Arizona). 24 hours longer , in fact.

    After they broke up, she hacked into his email, crawled through the doggy door and slept on his couch, slashed his tires ect.......

    She is as guilty as they come.

    She deserves the harshest penalty under Arizona law

    She is a cold blooded, calculated murderer.
    I have only been able to see bits and pieces of the trial....but from what I have seen, and then watched on the late night shows, the bitch is guilty guilty guilty.
    She was pissed at Travis.....and I saw a part where the reason she took along gas cans, was she wanted to buy gas in Utah...because gas was so high in California.....but yet, the dumb bitch filled the gas cans up in Pasadena.
    Today I was able to catch a glimpse of her broken finger crap.
    She makes me sick...almost as sick as Casey Anthony....and I hope Arias gets the max.

    I think I have hit/surpassed my quota for interest in such trials.

    Not easy to escape but I am trying.
