Jodi Arias Retrial: Defense To Put On Case, Hoping To Persuade Jury Convicted Murderer Shouldn’t Get Death Penalty
Jodi Arias’ defense team will begin their case to try and save the convicted murderer from the death penalty when the sentencing retrial resumes Thursday in Arizona’s Maricopa County Superior Court.
The trial of the 34-year-old, who murdered her boyfriend Travis Alexander in June 2008, will enter its’ sixth day after Judge Sherry Stephens gave jurors an off day Wednesday.
So far, the retrial has had similar themes to the first one, as prosecutors have shown jurors dozens of gory evidence items in making their case against Arias, who they said stabbed and shot Alexander, 30, in a jealous fit, thinking their relationship was coming to an end. Arias has maintained she was acting in self-defense in the violent killing.
