The State laid out a case for Murder One against Jodi Arias that gave the jury no other choice than a verdict to convict. I believe the jury will have no choice but to vote yea in the next phase of the trial as well; that Arias murdered Travis Alexander in a cruel manner. The manner of Travis Alexander's murder was horrific; it was carried out in a cruel and torturous manner by Arias.
Premeditation was too difficult to ignore in this case. There was the matter of the gas cans. The proven intent to cover all traces of her being in the State of Arizona. Buying gas outside Arizona to avoid stopping to refuel in Arizona. Turning off her cell phone in Arizona. Renting a car from Budget. The license plates (upside down & removed). The convenient burglary of her grandfather's gun shortly before the murder. The clean-up after the fact.
The murder of Travis Alexander. The taking of his life is tragic. The fact that Jodie Arias felt she had to kill Travis. The fact that Jodie Arias ruined the life of Travis and herself is sad. But it is what it is. And the jury got it absolutely correct. Yes, I agree with the Murder One conviction of Jodie Ann Arias.
