A bizarre video, just-released, shows murder suspect Jodi Arias primping her hair — with her hands cuffed behind her back — in a police interrogation room prior to her mug shot being taken.
The video — culled from police surveillance tapes taken June 15, 2008 — shows Arias wearing a dark shirt and light-colored pants while sitting on the floor, rubbing her eyes and whipping her head back to make sure her hair isn’t cascading over her eyes (she did not have her trademark bangs at the time the clip was shot).

At one point, a female official pokes her head into the room to check in on the accused murderer, who asks if she can have her handcuffs removed. The official tells Jodi that the detective on the case will be able to do that once he arrives.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Jodi and her defense team spent much of Wednesday’s proceedings trying to refute claims established by the prosecution in cross-examination on Tuesday.
While Arias has admitted stabbing her on/off again lover Travis Alexander 29 times, slitting his throat and shooting him in the face in his Mesa, Arizona apartment on June 4, 2008, she claims it was in self-defense.
She’s pleaded not guilty to first degree murder. If found guilty, she could receive the death penalty.
