It's big news here in AZ, but is anyone else following?

Shot in the head, throat slit, and 29 stab wounds....a bit of overkill for self defense and this chicks story has changed 3 times. Not to mention the sex and shower photos taken of her AND him only moment before his was murdered....and pictures on his camera of his dead, bloody body....is there any way this woman in not guilty??

I'm glued to this trial....


UPDATE 2/20

I've been keeping tabs on all the comments and I have to say, as far as girls wanting the acceptance of a male figure, they do what they can to please them. That's a fact. So he could have been humiliating her sexually. No one but those two can know for sure. I know women who do what they can and aim to please an abusive man. I also know that many abusive men aren't abusinve where everyone can see, so I don't think any of us can say she's lying about that. Because we just don't know.

HOWEVER, she has had 5 years to study up on battered woman syndrom and psychology when it comes to any type of abused woman and figure out what her story will be. I can't say no he wasn't abusive, because I don't know them. I wasn't a fly on the wall when everything was going down, so unfortunately we have to (to a point) go by what she is saying. But as far as her testimony today, and watching her interviews from the past, I find the fact that it wasn't premeditated and the fact that it went down the way she claims it did, VERY hard to believe. So I believe she should get life for premeditation. 

I get a woman who is so sexually or physically abused by a man she loves snapping and blacking out and killing him because, sometimes you just cannot take it anymore. BUT I just cannot bring myself to buy her story of what happened the day she killed him. The evidence strongly points at him being blitz attacked. That he didn't see it coming.

Keep weighing in ladies! 


3/7/13

WOW!!! An awesome insight into what the jurors are thinking. They don't seem to be buying her "I don't remember" bs about killing Travis. They also seem to be leaning more towards it looking like premeditation. They asked pretty good questions IMO. 

What do you think about the jury questions??


3/25

IMO this "expert" has crippled the defense instead of helping them. I'm almost wondering why the state doesn't rest now lol. Why is the defense keeping this man on the stand. He's suppose to be back up there but this go round is with Juan Martinez (who i love by the way he's like a little chihuahua nipping at your ankles lol). After this, I almost see no win for the defense. ALSO: new evidence about Jodi being the original companion for Travis' Cancun vacay, then bumped for another woman....slam dunk motive. Do you agree or disagree?



5/3

Wow....I can't believe its almost over. What did you tihnk about Nurmi and Martinez' closing arguments? What are your verdict predictions?? Remember...people were so sure OJ and Casey Anthony would be found guilty.....My prediction is the state will get what they want with 1st degree murder. 

Let us all hope that justice is done for Travis and his family whatever the outcome!


5/8

In case you haven't heard GUILTY 1ST DEGREE FELONY AND PREMEDITATED MURDER.....will she get death or just life in prison? 

Justice for Travis and his family has been done. RIP TRAVIS ALEXANDER

Finally. This long trial is over. Now the case is in the hands of the jury.  Boy I never thought I would see the day when Jodi shook with fear. They when the jury left court to start deliberations, she started shaking like a leaf. She should be worried.   Is it just me or did Nurmi seem like he really didn't want to be up infront of the court giving the closing statement? Unlike Martinez yesterday, Nurmi just seemed like he wanted to get today over with.   To be kind, Nurmi put me to sleep.  I thought that the defense would at least try to make sense of the nonsense that  Jodi spewed on the witness stand.  Instead Nurmi just proved that the defense had no case, and that everything the defense had to go on was based on the lies of the defendent.  Sorry, but I didn't buy the self defense claim 2 months ago and I still don't buy it.   I also had to laugh at he fact that Nurmi was basing alot of his "evdience" for the self defense claim, based on the defense's so called Domestic Violence expert, who was proven durning her cross examination to be a liar.  I can't wait  until the verdict comes in. I am praying that Travis's family will finally get the justice they deserve, and that Jodi never sees the light of day again.  I really hope she gets life without parloe. I think death is too good for her.

I think JM did a superb job!!!!  I think Nurmi did the best he could do, considering his client cannot speak a truth regarding anything.  I find her actions repulsive as she ignored the closing arguments of the state, laughed, mouthed the words....bullsh*t, as JM describing no physical abuse per Travis.  I find her smiles repulsive & purely evil.

Unfortunately this is dominating the news.  I think it's sad that this trial is getting as much airplay as it is.

Before closings I was thinking it she would get 2nd degree, But after the closings I don't see how she doesn't get first. Martinez did an amazing job of wrapping it all up and showing the many ways it was premeditated. He was brilliant in closing.

I felt the same way about casey anthony too though....
