Jury Skepticism Most Likely to Render Guilty Verdict in Jodi Arias Trial

Updated on March 9, 2013

Jury Questioning in Jodi Arias Trial

The jury who will decide whether to convict Jodi Arias of the murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander were allowed to ask Jodi Arias a series of more than 100 questions. Arias is facing the death penalty for stabbing Alexander 29 times, slashing his throat and shooting him in the face.

After Alexander's death, Arias maintained her innocence and even said, "If I killed Travis, I would beg for the death penalty." However, as the investigation unraveled and clues about the murder were discovered, Arias said that she witnessed two ninjas killing Alexander and ran for her life. Arias later admitted to killing Alexander when evidence of her renting a car to drive to his apartment and also hacking into his voicemail emeged.

But, after Arias' confession, her lawyers manintained that she kille Alexander is self-defense because he was abusive and sexually deviant. Arias late confession made it hard for people to believe anything that she said and many experts described her story as a "web of lies."

Arias is the fourth person facing the death penalty in Arizona and because of the nature of the crime and her lies, the jury was allowed to ask her more than 100 questions to try to get facts about the murder of Alexander.

Some of the questions that the jury asked Arias include: "How come you remember having sex with Travis, but you don't remember killing him?," "Did you ever photograph yourself after Travis hit you?" and "Why did you put the camera in the washing machine?"

Clearly, these questions prove that the jury do not believe Arias' story. Many people were worried that because the prosecution were seeking the death penalty, Arias would not be convicted of the murder. Many people described the beginning of the Jodi Arias' trial as similar to that of O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony. However, the questions of the jury reveal that it is very likely that Arias will be convicted of Alexander's murder.

      I sure hope so. I have been following this trial everyday. I have "friended" several FB sites in support of Travis and finding justice. On of them posted the police report. Things in it are very revealing about Jodi. She was never an abused woman. She was the abuser and very much a stalker.

      Good hub voted up and useful.
