Jodi was estranged from her parents and living with her grandparents in Yreka, California, when she was arrested or killing Alexander and extradited to Arizona.

William was rarely in the court during her 2013 and 2015 trials, where the jury found her guilty of first degree murder.

As Radar previously reported, Jodi was slapped with a disciplinary action during her first year in prison, getting her contact visit privileges revoked after calling a guard a “c**k-blocker”

Living in a tiny cell in the Perryville maximum security prison, Arias made extensive commissary purchases including sex toys, zit cream and Beano.

When her grandmother died in 2016, she did not ask for special permission to leave the prison to attend the funeral.

Jodi's appeal was in the works two years after she was convicted of killing Alexander.
