Jodi Arias Trial Update: Next Hearing Date on Jan. 3, Victim’s Brother Says


The Jodi Arias trial will continue in 2014, according to the latest update from Steven Alexander, the brother of victim Travis Alexander.

The next hearing date is scheduled for January 3 while the trial is set to start in mid-Febuary, Alexander said on the Facebook page “Justice for Travis Alexander.”

“We believe this is a tactic to try and get us to throw in the towel. We will not! I say again it won’t happen,” he said. “Our family will come together and see it through until it is finished. There is a monster that haunts us, but once the correct sentence is given, it’s her who will be haunted until the most the most humane punishment comes to her. Nothing compared to the sentence she gave to a good man. Anyhow, the entire Alexander family thanks all of you. Thank you for having our backs.”

The trial began highly publicize with multiple national media outlets reporting on scene, but the judge in charge of the case has since shut out news agencies and the public from the case.

Arias was convicted of murder in May, but the jury couldn’t reach a verdict on her sentence. Prosecutors are now pursuing a second penalty phase with a new jury in an effort to get the death penalty. No date for a new trial has been set.

Arias, 33, admitted she killed her boyfriend in 2008 at his suburban Phoenix home but claimed it was self-defense. Travis Alexander suffered nearly 30 knife wounds, had his throat slit and was shot in the forehead in what prosecutors argued was a jealous rage.

Judge Sherry Stephens has held hearing after hearing behind closed doors as the next steps of the case unfold almost entirely under a shroud of secrecy. Over the last several months, she has heard arguments over sequestering the new jury, moving the case out of Phoenix, Arias’ desire to fire her lead attorney ,and allowing live television coverage of the retrial, among other issues.

She has denied each request, but quietly with orders released days after the secret hearings as the case languishes without public scrutiny even as Arias’ legal tab is being picked up by taxpayers at a cost exceeding $1.7 million.

Steven Alexander has given updates about the moves on the Facebook page, including the series of defense motions denied.

    Wondering if any meatballs came to Epoch? Seems this article would be good place to ask.

      I’m a sometimes meatball. I followed the trial but haven’t been following closely the last few months.

        Hi Seehowtheyrun, always remember that avatar. nice to see you here.
        If you run into any of the meatball group, please let them know. Its great your post goes up in real time…*HP speed* a few hours if you were lucky, many times it was days, or just squashed all together. Did you check out the thread on ET under tech news about HP, many refugees from HP there.

    • LaFemmeNikitty

      Do you know what the screen name was of the meatball who started the forum? It’s now defunct but I sent the creator an email telling her about this site and disqus. But I can’t remember her screen name …. I’m so terrible about forgetting names, but I’m pretty good at remembering avatars … if you show me a lineup (if they’re using the same avatar) I can probably pick them out. In other words, I haven’t seen any except seehowtheyrun.

  • Amanda Altamirano

    Why do these revengeful Mormons get to force the taxpayers to pay for their vengence? Look, the second jury is going to come to the same conclusion and if they don’t then it just opens the door for a million more appeals for Jodi. Again, at taxpayer expense. And what about the trauma of putting another 16 people through that torture of sitting there for 4 months looking at that stuff? These are the most selfish people on the planet. But they are Mormons, what can we expect? They are all going to hell to be with Travis the pedophile pervert anyway.

    • Jasmine starlight

      If I was you, I would worry about where you’ll end up.
      I see you fall for lies easily, no proof of Travis being a pedophile, just another killer lying trying to get away with murder. How many lies was the CMJA caught in—to many too count. One psychoBitch, a heartless creature.

    • LaFemmeNikitty

      Is that you, Joist?

    • newzjunkee

      Warren Jeff’s is in no way associated to regular Mormons. You see, TA was part of the Mormon church who does NOT practice polygamy. You’re grabbing at straws.

      • Earl Hickey

        A wake-up call: Joseph Smith, the founder of the religion, practiced polygamy (or celestial marriage as he called it), and had multiple wives. He had had a revelation and God ostensibly sad unto him that he should marry multiple wives.
        Sure, in mainstream Mormonism they reluctantly abandoned this practice, but it was only because if they hadn’t they would have had problems with the law.
        And yet in some parts of Utah, polygamy is a par for the course for Mormons who call themselves fundamentalists because they still do it “old school”, like the first prophet did.
        .
        Sorry to rain on your parade, but you need to study Mormonism in a little bit more detail. Mormons are self-deluded (their religion has been proven false by science, including DNA) and perverted (marrying more than one wife, taking underage girls as wives, marrying your won daughters – that’s sick)

        • barry

          You Americans talk a load of bullshit and want blood from anybody
          who does wrong the deed was done and she has paid the price!
          Move on and get a life!

        • KC S Ahoe

          No religion allows sex before marriage, so it does not matter if he was Mormon or Catholic, you stupid fool… And your AriASS was a fake “Mormon” as well so why was she offering sex to anyone and everyone willing to put it in? Lets not forget she broke up with Daryl or should I say stopped banging him because as she told him she needed to save it for marriage, yet she continued to live with him and bang Travis and god only knows who else, maybe her hookering at the purple plum will come out in the end.

    • Xiaomin Feador

      Was Travis a pedophile? HELL NO!
      Was Travis a saint? HELL NO!

      But i agree with you, the taxpayers should not be made to pick up the tabs for murderers.

    • KC S Ahoe

      another sick F*** that believes anything they hear, go read your national enquirer for your daily news update… damnnnn some people just are to dumb to be American.

    • Markie

      wow, i bet you would believe anything you read, or hear, so read this outloud to yourself
      “i am the dumbest american to ever live, with the brain the size of a dried pea. A person with downs & running a campaign with Jerrys kids has more potential then me.”
      Theres a little something from Canada, and a proud support of TA.

  • Earl Hickey

    That brother iof Travis has some nerve accusing Jodi of being a “monster”
    Travis was the real monster!
    He abused her, molested her, sodomized her, and now everybody is guilting her for standing up for herself!
    Well we Jodi supporters, won’t throw in the towel either
    We will come to the court to cheer for her, we will donate money, we will petition, we will see to it that real justice is served and Jodi’s conviction is overturned!
    There’s so much wrong with this case
    They even didn’t bother to follow up on Dustin Thompson and on that bloody shoeprint!
    Sloppy investigation!
    No evidence of stalking!
    De-Marte was green, she had no business evaluating Jodi because it was not in her wheelhouse to conduct such a complex evaluation! Dr Samuels was much better qualified, despite Martinez’s lame attempts at discrediting him! He fell in love with Jodi – for all I know DeMarte fell in love with Martinez!!!

    • newzjunkee

      How in the *&^% can you say he molester and sodomized her? She was more than willing when it come to s*x. Go ahead and throw away your money to a monster. It won’t get you far. There are A LOT more TA supporters than there are JA supporters and there is a good reason for that. Dr. Samuels and LaViolette were only in it for the money or to get in her pants. Come back to earth, Earl.

      • Earl Hickey

        I know TA has a lot of supporters – Hitler had many supporters too, but it didn’t work out for him that well did it?
        What matters is the quality of supporters. TA’s supporters are not very bright from the looks of it, and Jodi’s supporters are more level-headed and analytical! We didn’t buy into the hype around the case, we saw straight through Martinez’s lies and his bizarre far-out theory of the crime.
        DeMarte was green, she was NOT qualified to diagnose PTSD, but you believed her because you wanted “justice” (revenge). I’m telling you, this was a modern day Salem’s witch trial, and there will be a retrial, you can take it to the bank! We won’t leave an innocent woman in the lurch! Jodi deserves a second chance!
        Jodi is the most decent person I’ve ever seen.

        • newzjunkee

          Hitler and TA had nothing in common. Not one thing. You’re grabbing at straws. Us TA supporters are a lot more stable mentally than any of you JA supporters. She is laughing at all of you for being so ignorant and is most likely shocked that a few of you believe her lies. I say “a few” because there aren’t many at all that support her. Most of us can see through her lies. But hey, go ahead and make fools of yourselves. Doesn’t bother me for one second.

          • Earl Hickey

            Haha, you’re stable?
            Then I guess all those death threats (even those that were sent to the jury foreman’s son) were a sign of your compos mentis, right?
            Don’t make me laugh! You’re like powder-kegs! We, Jodi supports have gotten a lot of grief from you!
            Sorry, Jodi is not laughing, she’s suffering because she was wronged by the state! She did not receive a fair trial and we won’t rest until her verdict is overturned!
            I personally will do everything I can to help her through this rough time! She deserves sympathy, not hate!

          • newzjunkee

            Yes, I’m stable as are many other TA followers. We’re simply seeking justice for TA who suffered immensely at the hands of JA. Yes, Jodi is laughing. Still cannot believe some of you actually believe her lies.

          • Jennifer Lynn

            She’s suffering because SHE MURDERED A MAN IN A HORRIFICALLY AWFUL AND DISTURBING MANNER! She did a horrible job at hiding the evidence and got caught because she was stupid! If she’s innocent Earl, then why wash the digi camera? Why delete the pictures? Why try and destroy the evidence? If she was attacked and abused, why didn’t she go to the police after she defended herself? Why didn’t she go and explain that she was acting in self defense? WHy? Because she had another hookup to get too…more booty for psycho!

            This isn’t an attack on the Mormon faith. A man lost his life! She should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

        • Jennifer Lynn

          Hey, you thought Casey Anthony was innocent too didn’t you???

          • Xiaomin Feador

            i bet you he did. LOL

        • JCF

          Sorry guy– you are delusional and under the “spell” of JA. A jury of her peers found her GUILTY, now they just have to determine life in prison or death. Stop drinking from the trough of Jodi Arias “Kool-Aide and find something else to latch onto.

        • Xiaomin Feador

          You “saw straight through Martinez’s lies and his bizarre far-out theory of the crime.” ??? LOL

          So, in your ‘analytical’ mind, Jodi’s self-defense theory is more plausible? I guess it is just as plausible as her ‘two ninjias killed Travis and left me alive and run.’ story?

        • imamale4sure

          Earl, apparently you are not the bright one. It is a proven fact that Jodi lied under oath time after time. I don’t think you are the sharpest pencil in the box or the brightest crayon in the box. I think you blew a breaker and your light bulb is out. Come on Earl. Quit being a dupe. I think you want in Jodi’s pants as you said others were trying to do.. That will not work Earl. I thought the DODO went extinct years ago but apparently not. There is at least one left. Jodi decent? Don’t make me laugh. I guarantee you one thing, IF her conviction is overturned, I will never serve on a another jury. Believe me. I know how to get excused.

      • Earl Hickey

        And you think Samuels and LaViolette were in it for the money?
        Well, news-flash: DeMarte didn’t do it for free either, neither did Martinez! I assure you DeMarte was generously rewarded for her services by the state, so was Martinez and any other State expert witness/prosecutor for that matter. Expert witnesses are not free for both sides.
        Martinez did it also for recognition – he won a prosecutor of the year award once and he wants another one! Also look up a picture of him posing with a baseball bat he had been awarded for “prosecution” (aka, harassing witnesses)

        • newzjunkee

          There is a reason Martinez won prosecutor of the year award. He’s excellent at his job and extremely thorough.

          • Earl Hickey

            He’s excellent at contributing to other people’s misery!
            I wouldn’t be able to go to sleep knowing that I’m making money contributing to other people’s misery, yet he doesn’t miss a night’s sleep! He’s the real monster – not only is he putting Jodi and her loved ones through hell, he’s also putting TA’s relatives through a lot of pain because he was intransigent and refused to deal and insisted on a trial! He could have pleaded it out years ago and avoided this public spectacle/debacle that cost US taxpayers well over 2 million dollars (this money would have been used for public school funding for example, but Martinez wanted to satisfy his ego and he robbed society of millions of dollars), he’s a true megalomaniac!
            Martinez is scum, I despise him for being so pigheaded, egomaniacal and callous!

          • Xiaomin Feador

            Oh, Martinez refuse to give Jodi a deal, how awful! … You really believe that Alexanders family would want a deal less than a murder conviction and a death penalty?

    • Jennifer Lynn

      Someone has a lil crush on psycho don’t they?

      • newzjunkee

        HAHA Exactly what I was thinking. These men actually think they will be able to get some of that nasty action from Arias. Desperation at it’s finest.

    • Jasmine starlight

      LOL—how Jodie liked to pose for pictures at the drop of a hat, plenty of ‘lovely’ pictures on the web for you—-I see she’s your type of gal.

    • Xiaomin Feador

      Earl Hickey, i dont believe Travis Alexanders was a saint as his family, friends (and some supporters) had portrayed him to be, but your accusations of “He abused her, molested her, sodomized her” is equally groundless: 1. You get all that from Jodi, and we all know Jodi is a liar (as good a liar as that Orlando piece of —-), so, “What Jodi says goes … right out of the window.” 2. IF Jodi was being molested, sodomized, why wouldnt she run away from the abuser? Mind you, SHE was the one showed up at HIS place, uninvited.

    • julia marie green

      omg, you are nuts. quit eating paint chips

  • Natalie Waters

    Inmate Arias is looking a bit pale these days. Yes, she has lost the right to be addressed as “Jodi”. Not even a pile of stage make-up during her next media-op will mask her rapidly fading, once known as “good looks”. Actually her looks were chiseled away in direct correlation to her true nature being exposed.

  • Geofrey

    Just a thought, the Alexander family should find room to forgive maybe not forget but forgive. After all doesn’t the Church they belong to teach them to forgive. I wonder if their temple recommends are on hold, wait I hope that their bishop puts it on hold for them and calls them in to tell them to let it go already? These are the kind of people who should not be allowed to have recommends. Jodi did something wrong here we cannot dismiss this at all but to have revenge? Jodi, will spend the rest of her days in prison!

    • newzjunkee

      Maybe the TA family will forgive her once JA apologizes to her and comes clean with all of her BS lies. Wake up.

      • Earl Hickey

        I think Jodi did come clean!
        You just don’t believe her because you want her to be guilty,
        But she’s innocent! It was self-defence

        • newzjunkee

          The only reason I don’t believe her is because she told numerous lies! Also, has she apologized to the TA family? No. She is a heartless monster.

          • Earl Hickey

            Her previous “lies” were not of her own volition – she suffered PTSD and wasn’t herself. Her acting strange while in custody was a defense (coping) mechanism (look it up).
            She partially recovered from PTSD while in jail, a year or so later, and she confessed to killing him in self-defense.
            .
            Sorry, but put yourself in her shoes – you have been abused by your boyfriend/girlfriend for months, then your partner attacks you and you have to use deadly force against them. Would you apologize for killing tour abuser who threatened to kill you? I don’t think so.

          • newzjunkee

            I’ve been mentally and physically abused. I didn’t kill the man, I picked myself up, brushed myself off and ran in the other direction. She wasn’t abused. If she was, she wouldn’t have gone to the extreme in order to keep TA in her life. She had plenty of opportunity to remove herself from the situation. She was obsessed with TA.

          • Earl Hickey

            It’s called battered woman syndrome. Many abused women are afflicted by it, including Jodi. The crux is you cannot leave your abusive partner even if you understand the relationship is going nowhere. Look it up.
            .
            Also, if Travis wasn’t obsessed with her, why were they going on all those trips together, why did he keep seeing her and having sex with her? If he didn’t want her, all he had to do is slam the door in her face! But he kept inviting her! I don’t buy this “Travis was not into Jodi” story!
            .
            Travis was controlling, manipulative man! He manipulated Jodi like a puppet, he used her for sex, called her nasty insulting names, abused her, snapped her finger!

          • newzjunkee

            Come on, Earl. They used each other for sex. They were both willing partners. It doesn’t give her the right to do what she did to him. It was a brutal murder, one that was premeditated. She manipulated TA like a puppet, by using her body. Oh my, he snapped her finger? Can’t compare that to stabbing him 27 times, slitting his throat and SHOOTING him.

          • Earl Hickey

            Does it give him the right to abuse her, to snap her finger and not take her to the hospital afterwards (probably was afraid of being arrested), to insult her constantly, to date other women right under her nose, to lure her in only to break her heart by cheating on her openly, to give her false promises?
            And don’t forget that on that day he assaulted her for dropping his camera! Yes, I’m NOT buying Martinez’s bizarre story that a 115lbs woman managed to get the better of a 190 lbs kick boxer using just a kitchen knife! That sounds bizarre! He had 70 pounds on her! He would have grabbed that knife out of her hands in a jiffy and had her in a chokehold! There’s NO way in hell she stabbed him first! It had to have been the gunshot first, otherwise it makes no sense.
            .
            Read the autopsy report and Florez’s report – they both are in agreement that he must have been shot first. But then Martinez, wanting to get in a cruelty factor to seek the death penalty, decided to have them change their findings (commit perjury) and say that the gunshot was last! That’s ILLEGAL what Martinez did! He suborned perjury to get a conviction!

          • Jasmine starlight

            Earl stay out of the jury box, your logic is crazy. So many killers would walk free with the likes of you.

          • julia marie green

            get with the program. shes evil

          • Kimberly

            Earl..you seem to be forgetting….EVERYTHING YOU ARE TELLING ALL OF US ON YOUR POSTS WAS PUT INTO YOUR MIND BY A KILLER!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU for NOT being on her Jury!

          • imamale4sure

            And everything you are saying is put into your head by what? A KILLER!! She told lie after lie while under oath. Where do the lies end and the truth emerge? Who said TA “snapped” her finger? Who said she was abused? I will give you here guesses Earl and the first two don’t count. So you still don’t know who made the abuse statement? Well Earl, it was Jodi herself and no one else. With all the lies she told during the trial, you still believe her? BOY! EEarl you need the shrink not Jodi.

          • KC S Ahoe

            The slut-bag admitted on stand she injured her finger on the 4th, the day she was brutally murdering Travis. So get your facts right… LOSER

          • Jasmine starlight

            He didn’t snap her finger—she injured it stabbing poor Travis, a soulless creature…who followed him, and kept stabbing him in the back, before shooting him in the head, and cutting his throat. What woman could do this, she’s not human.

          • Jennifer Lynn

            you’re making me laugh with this stuff hahaha

          • newzjunkee

            Earl is grasping at straws. I don’t feel sorry for any of the JA followers. Completely ignorant.

          • julia marie green

            i agree

          • Xiaomin Feador

            One thing agree with you, travis used jodi for sex, … but that justify the brutal killing?

          • julia marie green

            you are an idiot, i watched the whole entire trial. and i got none of what you are saying from this trial. maybe you should watch it. that woman is evil

          • Jennifer Lynn

            Dude, are you serious? You really believe this chick was abused? She’s many things…psychotic, a killer, a liar, sick…but abused was not one of them…

            As an abuse survivor, I took a lot. I never killed any man in any kind of defense and I certainly didn’t stalk my abuser.

          • Ellipsis Von Hammersmark

            The fact that his character is now defamed because she scrambled for legal protection sickens me. There are plenty of REAL abuse cases out there and she honestly thinks she was abused? No, there was no PTSD, she went insane. There is a difference, PTSD means she was disturbed by the whole event.

            Lets back up to January 3rd, 2013 when this article was published: http://abcnews.go.com/US/jodi-arias-trial-defense-claims-victim-sexual-deviant/story?id=18119972

            According to them (and many other sources) Jodi stabbed Travis 27 times, slit his throat, and shot him in the head.

            It doesn’t matter what order it was done, the fact of the matter is she did a heinous thing to another human being. Even if she was “abused” (what, emotionally?) the reciprocation of the crimes do not equate.

            Some more food for thought since I cannot actually tell you what was going on inside her head:

            1. May 28, 2008: Jodi Arias’ grandparents home was burglarized on May 28, 2008. The only things reported missing was a .25 caliber handgun that was never recovered.

            2. June 2, 2008: Arias rented a car from Redding, California, which is 100 miles south of her home, and told the Rental Company that she was only driving locally.

            3. June 4, 2008: Travis Alexander misses a “very important” conference call.

            4. June 5, 2008: Arias calls Alexander’s voicemail several times as well as leaving messages. She also accessed his voicemail via remote.

            5. June 7, 2008: Arias returns the rental car she rented from Redding, California. Although she mentioned driving around locally, the car had accumulated 2,800 miles in just 5 days. The car, as well, had its floor mats removed and there was “red stains” on the seats. (car was cleaned before police got to it)

            6. June 9, 2008: Alexander wasn’t answering forms of communication so the family had him checked on. The roommates he had found a key to his room (the master bedroom) and opened the door where they found Alexander in “pools of blood” inside the master bathroom. They dial 911 and tell the dispatcher about an EX-girlfriend named Arias who had a history of stalking, slashing tires, and invading his internet privacy (according to previous statements from Alexander pre-humorously)

            7. June 10, 2008: Alexander’s trip to cancun is effectively canceled.

            Now, it would seem weird I would add number 7 but as an armchair detective I think it holds significance to her motive.

            After she was arrested in July for the murder of Alexander here is what transpired.

            -Police found a body with 27 stab wounds, a slit throat, and a bullet wound to the head. They determined that the firearm used was a .25 caliber handgun. (#1 for circumstance)

            -Police found a camera showing Arias and Alexander in sexually suggestive poses with the timestamp starting around June 4, 2008 at 1:40 pm to the last photo with Alexander alive at 5:29 pm on June 4, 2008.

            -After 5:29 pm the photos of who it is believed to be, Alexander, bleeding on the floor of the bathroom are taken.

            -Also there was a bloody handprint on the wall with both Arias and Alexander’s DNA placing Arias at the scene of the crime.

            Now onto speculation since those are all the facts we have.

            According to witnesses’ accounts, the jealousy or deep resentment of Travis from Jodi was the motive. They were in a relationship for an irrelevant amount of time (February 2007 – June 2007), as it gets interesting in April 2008, not May or June 2008.

            In April 2008, Alexander told his company that he would no longer be taking Arias to Cancun (#7) and in her place would like to take another female friend. We don’t know as she is the only one with a side of a story now, but its safe to assume that Alexander and Arias were “broken up” or “separated” and no longer in a happy relationship. However, since Jodi knew prior to April that he was going to Cancun, she knew how much time she had left to either rekindle their relationship and still go with her Significant Other or rekindle their relationship so that he will come back to her. In May, Jodi may or may not have anything to do with the burglary. However, in June, she met with him and something tells me it wasn’t a “run-of-the-mill crazy girl get away from me situations”. Most likely, Jodi and Travis rekindled something to allow her inside his home and into his shower. Perhaps they were mending things over between 1:40 pm and 5:29 pm however, as much as things can get fixed in that amount of time, things can go wrong.

            So the speculation? She killed him out of resentment, not jealousy. She resented that he was still moving along with his life after their relationship, possibly more distraught over their “breakup” than he was. She made a plan to kill him if she couldn’t have him so she stole her grandparents gun and drove the 933 miles from Redding, CA to Mesa, AZ to give him one last chance because she loved him, she didn’t want to just kill him. When they saw each other, there was probably more kissing and hugging than screaming and yelling. Allowing her into the home where the two mingled for about 4 hours doing whatever they do before something he said or she realized and she snapped. She took the opportunity she had created for herself because he didn’t say the right thing or make the right gesture to her making her go into a blind rage that resulted in his death.

            The reason why she is a real bitch wasn’t the murder. It was how it was committed. Murder is wrong, don’t misunderstand me, but what she did was deprived that I only imagined would happen in slasher films. Since his hand print was on the wall and there was so much blood, something tells me the stab wounds were first. Then she slit his throat and while he gasped for his final breaths, she shot him…it wasn’t calculated due to the 27 stab wounds, she went into a frenzy.

            What we see with the car rental, the gun burglary shows that she half planned it out. The photographs show she may have had second thoughts or there was an attempt at something else. When it didn’t work out, her half-cocked plan went into full swing making a huge mess and a whole debacle with her word to boot.

            I won’t go into how she is a liar, I’ll let you figure that out but to help you along the way, check this out:

            She lied to police saying she hadn’t seen Travis since April 2008. Later, she changed her story saying that she was with Travis the day he was murdered but were attacked by two “robbers” who murdered Travis (stabbed him 27 times, slit his throat, and shot him) and attacked her (she got away with just a cut). Two years later (2010?), she decides to go with self-defense saying that Travis was abusive towards her.

            That is three different stories and you bought the most recent. I wrote this all out for you to help you, all I can ask is that you think about what you say before you get all the facts. The fact of the matter is, she can’t keep her stories straight for the last few years. Why believe anything that comes from her mouth?

            Oh I see months of abuse–ridiculous she traveled a thousand miles to go see him, she lived in another state for months before murdering Travis out of revenge…no one leaves Jodie and takes another to Cancun.

          • Kimberly

            EXACTLY Jasmine.!!!!!

          • Xiaomin Feador

            “… you have been abused by your boyfriend/girlfriend for months …” … Then what do you do? You go back to your abuser for more? … You need to have your head checked, and replace it with a functional one.

          • alinicky

            I happen to be a Domestic Violence Specialist. Let me tell you something… If that butcher would’ve been suffering from any type of “domestic abuse” by Travis, as she has related, she would’ve NEVER come back after she was out of that house! A victim will experience problems “leaving,” but once they’re, they’re GONE!!! She’s nothing but a pathological liar, a sociopath, the master of manipulation & control. When she could not longer control Travis, she butchered him!

          • Kim David

            Travis dated her for a few months. Once he realized she was not the one he broke up with her & was brutally honest with her. You have to be Engaged, Living Together, Married or have children in order to be a Survivor of abuse. WHY DO ABUSE VICTIMS STAY? They don’t have any other place to go. WHY DID ARIAS KEEP SHOWING UP AT HIS HOME UNINVITED?

          • julia marie green

            sorry but you have no clue what you are talking about

          • Kimberly

            OK 1st of all the camera freak doesn’t have ONE picture of abuse, YET there are many of them showing her goodies. Explain please? And, oh BTW…IF she had or has PTSD..(AND THAT IS A GIANT IF) she brought it upon herself by killing another. Funny it took her FIVE years to come up with that. Come on Earl…think about all this and PLEASE remember SHE ADMITTED TO KILLING HIM!!!!!!! HELLO????

          • Kim David

            Kimberly… you are right.
            Arias told so many lies with her bubbly personality & it’s all recorded. Her Narcissism helped her dig her own grave. Execute this monster!

          • imamale4sure

            Abuse?? Abuse?? Who says she was abused? Jodi and Jodi alone claims abuse. She went everywhere with a camera. Why is there NO PHOTOS of this alleged abuse? She is as guilty as sin and needs to pay for her deed.

          • julia marie green

            i agree with that

        • Reality Overdoing Fool

          Stop eating lead pencils!

        • Xiaomin Feador

          You stab somebody dozens of time, slit their throat, and shoot them in the head, in self-defense?

        • julia marie green

          you are an idiot

        • Kimberly

          OMG! REALLY???? That;s what you are going to go with Earl? Please enlighten me why she changed her story SO many times if she was “coming clean.” Truly, I need to know.

      • Geofrey

        Wake up? what part did you not like the putting the temple recommend on hold or Jodi did something wrong.
        I already moved on with this case, she is not innocent we know that! The Alexander family needs to just move on forgive! I would like to know what ward they belong to, so that I can go talk to their bishop.

        • Reality Overdoing Fool

          Yes, and you should also have a looksie at the autopsy photos. Maybe you could share them with the bishop!!

      • Kim David

        Too Late. She’s done everything she could to hurt this family & you can’t unring the bell. Even if they execute her… The Alexanders still lost. She was an evil monster & he was a good soul that helped many people.

    • Jennifer Lynn

      Are you serious???? Would you…could you forgive someone for what she did to their sun? Their brother, their friend? Then to get on the stand and trash his character like she did? You could let that go? I’m thinking you haven’t thought this through on a personal level…

      • Reality Overdoing Fool

        “SON” not “SUN”.. They are really dropping the ball in schools these days aren’t they ?

        • Ellipsis Von Hammersmark

          An ellipsis is used to omit a word, sentence or a whole section from whatever text is being quoted, also, it can indicate an unfinished thought, end of a sentence, or a trailing off into silence. Therefore, you improperly used the ellipsis by not quoting the entirety of her sentence as well as it not being inside the sentence as well as improper typing of the symbol as a whole.

          An ellipsis is properly constructed: … (not) ..

          If you wish to attack someone on an educational level, try not to be a jackass while doing it. Especially with petty bullshit like grammar and spelling. This is not an essay, it is not an academic paper or important document. It is an internet discussion forum where all uses of the language are not for syntactical construction, but for comprehension.

          Seems to me that you were able to comprehend her post therefore, there is nothing wrong with it. I mean, at least she can properly type out the three dots for the ellipsis…

          • imamale4sure

            What the hell is this? An English lesson? You are showing your ignorance by downing another because of their spelling.

        • Jasmine starlight

          I do believe Travis was their ‘sun’ they loved his warmth, many stated that about Travis.

      • Jasmine starlight

        Jennifer I agree, she even trashes Travis’ name in death, someone here must speak on his behalf. Such terrible lies she made up about him years later, all that time sitting in jail, crafting her defense. The first two tales didn’t fly, so then came the self-defense lie. I find the Alexander family to be a class act, and are just seeking justice for their beloved ‘SUN’ – their brother.

        • Xiaomin Feador

          Was Travis a pedophile? HELL NO!
          Was Travis a saint? HELL NO!

          • Jasmine starlight

            Tell me who rises to Sainthood?
            Jodie doesn’t rise period.

    • BoyintheMachine

      It’s hard to forgive someone who still continues to lie and refuses to be honest. To this day she still claims she is a victim of abuse and that it was self defense. Finally, the family can’t forgive her for anything. The only person who can forgive her is dead. God can forgive her if she is honest with herself and accepts what she did and repents.

    • Reality Overdoing Fool

      They are expected to forgive a demon who’s never shown a morsel of regret or even good old fashioned human shame? Her fake crying isn’t an apology, smirking and acting like a complete succubus in human form is not redeeming. She’s a devil and as such needs to be sent back to hell where she belongs. Anyone “supporting” this savage beast is very disturbed!

    • Xiaomin Feador

      Geofrey, no offense intended, just for the sake of argument. :) . Forgiveness is a noble thing to talk about, to suggest, but a very hard thing to do. IF i close my eyes, imagine that if it was MY brother being murdered, stabbed dozens of times, throat slashed, head shot … that picture becomes 100 times worse.

      • Geofrey

        No offense taken, I have experienced death in my family and it is hard to come to a conclusion of why did it have to happen. The act is totally wrong, but for another to seek revenge is just as bad. Again, I am all for seeking what is right for the family and the person who did the crime but at some point when is enough, enough! and let it be in the hands of the Man upstairs.

        • Xiaomin Feador

          i just know IF i were in that position, i wouldnt be able to find the strength to forgive, nor would i want to. Actually, IF it were me in the position of the Alexanders family, there would be no trial. Jodi Arias would have to take her story to ‘the Man upstairs’, IMMEDIATELY.

        • Kimberly

          Geofrey…The Alexander family is NOT seeking revenge…they are seeking justice. There is a HUGE difference.

  • newzjunkee

    Once JA is in prison, whether it’s LWOP or DP, things will settle down. Also, once she apologizes to the TA family and the Arizona taxpayers, maybe some forgiveness will set in. Until then, MOST people will be enraged and against the murderer. All of you JA followers are too ignorant to realize that she LIES, non stop. She planned the murder and she went through with it, admitting to killing him and went above and beyond to make sure he was dead. If this was self defense, how do you explain the wounds to his back and HIS defense wounds. She had no defense wounds other than a cut on her hand. She thought she would get away with this murder with her non stop lies and sympathy from a few idiots who she’s convinced she was abused. Show the evidence of abuse! Lets hope this next jury has the brains to give her what she deserves.

    I have many Mormon friends and let me tell you, they are some of the most genuine, good hearted people that I know.

      I have already read it. Very incompetent article.

  • jordan hamilton

    The death penalty isn’t severe enough for Arias. She ought to be given life imprisonment without possibility for parole.

    • Xiaomin Feador

      i agree. the idea of anguish in a solitary cell for the rest of her life would be excruciatingly painful for Jodi Arias, before the murder, she had been doing everything to enjoy life to the fullest, her cell would be coffin for her.

    • Kim David

      She’s too dangerous to be around other inmates. She needs to be isolated.

  • Xiaomin Feador

    This murder case has got nothing to do with Mormons or any religion.

  • Xiaomin Feador

    Are you blaming Mormon, the religion for the murder now? This is straw is a little too flimsy dont you think?

    • KC S Ahoe

      its the bending straws, especially made for people like him.

  • TruthBeTold

    Arias is nothing more than manipulative narcissist who cares only about herself and lies each time she opens her mouth! She needs to be put in isolation for the 1st 5 years and then life in prison for the rest – NO PAROLE! Death row would bring the isolation upon her like a stack of bricks – we all know she will not be executed but, the isolation is what we all want. Justice for Travis!

  • Dln Gil

    The sole mormon who slaughtered Mr. Travis Victor Alexander is this infamous murderess. I don’t think she’s getting the DP, though. She has to be held accountable for her heinous crime.

  • julia marie green

    get with the program, she is evil

  • Kim David

    She’s worked hard to get the Death Penalty. She’s lied, changed her lies, created detailed stories about who killed him & she’s still lying. She had the audacity to premeditate perjury. She sat there under oath & lied to the jury about how Travis beat her when he’s never hit anyone in his life. The self-proclaimed Artist/Photographer who never goes anywhere without her camera and not one pic of abuse? Over 8,000 emails/texts and not one word about abuse. She’s pure evil & she’s the reason why we have the DP.

    • Chiron

      I don’t believe Ariass’ would know what the ‘truth’ is or was even if it fell out of the sky, landed on her face and commenced to wiggle; all the while screaming ‘It’s me the truth! it’s me the truth!’.

    • imamale4sure

      I very much doubt Jodi will receive the death penalty. That would NOT be my vote though. But I do believe that IF she gets life without parole, she should NOT be able to collect any revenues from what she calls her art or anything else that would create income for her. It cost close to $2 million dollars for her trial. If she gets life, put her in isolation. I honestly believe isolation would be the worse thing she would have to endure. She is too much into herself to be able to take isolation.

      • Kim David

        I would agree to LIFE ON DEATH ROW.

  • Kim David
  • imamale4sure

    Ok. The penalty phase trial for Jodi was supposed to have been last fall and was postponed so many times. has the judge finally got off her butt and scheduled it? This article says January 3rd. January has come and gone. February is just about gone. So what is the verdict? has it happened or not? I keep checking but can find anything pertaining to this event. Death or life without parole? What’s it to be?
