Jodi Arias Makes More Outrageous Claims

Wow.  Jodi Arias took to the witness stand for the 4th day yesterday, and made more outrageous and serious claims about murder victim, 30 year old Travis Alexander.  IMHO, this gets more unbelievable every single day.  To summarize the allegations Arias has made thus far:

  • He had an affair with a married woman
  • He was attracted to young boys
  • He initiated sexual intercourse with her while she was asleep
  • He broke her finger and kicked her in the ribs
  • He subjected her to humiliating sexual acts (his "antics") for the fulfillment of his own fantasies
She is still expected to testify about a phone sex recording she made, in which Travis tells her she sounds like a 12 year old girl - or something to that effect.  How many different deviance themes are they going to come up with here?  How believable is it to think that a 30 year old man with ALL OF THESE behaviors would not be discovered by anybody other than Jodi Arias in his life?

This is simply outrageous - and I can't wait for her be cross examined about these allegations. My sense is that MAYBE she is mixing 5%-10% of truth in with 90% fabrications - maybe he did have some fantasies he asked her to participate in, but in my opinion she was a willing participant.  What are the chances that this man was attracted to YOUNG boys (5-6 years old), teenage girls, married women - and also had a fairly normal sexual appetite for Jodi Arias?

Remember, the police did a thorough search of Alexanders' home, computer(s) and phone - they never recovered anything related to children on any of his computers or found any such evidence in the home.  They are all over the map, and I hope Martinez nails her on every inconsistent allegation she has made.  Hey, guess I could be wrong and she could be telling the truth.  Highly doubtful that she would be the only person in the world who knew all of these things about Travis. Every act she accuses him in are considered highly immoral in the Mormon faith - and in most religious faiths.  

All the while she is painting herself as the submissive, "I went along with it", coy little girl who was just controlled by this overbearing deviant man.  This is hard to watch folks!  Can't wait to see what she alleges today.  They are running out of things to slander him with and when the prosecution gets their shot, watch out!  What do you think of her testimony?  The jury will be instructed that Arias's testimony is NOT evidence, so hoping they see through to the truth.

My last question - why did Arias feel the need to record the so called phone sex tape?  Had to be one of two reasons.  She either wanted to relive the moment, or use it AGAINST him.  Also, what happened to the Spider Man underwear we've heard so much about? She seems to have photos of everything else that could help her.  Where are these?



    1. I CANNOT wait for the cross exam! This is painful to watch - Arias goes mostly unchallenged. But her time is coming.....

Dr. Janeen DeMarte - A Look At The Prosecution's Expert Witness

Dr. Janeen DeMarte is expected to take the stand in the Jodi Arias murder trial as a key witness for the prosecution. Think of DeMarte as the State's response to Dr. Richard Samuels and potentially Alyce LaViolette. It's unclear when DeMarte will testify, but with Alyce LaViolette's testimony wrapping up, I thought it would be helpful to take a look at who the State's expert witness is.

Dr. Janeen DeMarte is a licensed clinical psychologist who has a private practice in the Phoenix area. She holds a master's degree and PhD in clinical psychology. with a concentration on forensics - and graduated from Michigan State University and fulfilled her doctoral residency at Arizona State Hospital.  Her clinical training was done at outpatient clinics, correctional facilities and inpatient unit settings. She has served as the Clinical Director of a large outpatient behavior health clinic in Phoenix and "oversaw the practice of numerous multidisciplinary treatment provide…

Is Alyce LaViolette Cashing In On Murder Trial?

As the defense finishes questioning their star witness, domestic abuse expert Alyce LaViolette, many are disillusioned by her choice to take the stand to portray murder defendant Jodi Arias as a battered and abused woman.  Maybe I'm the one who's crazy, but wasn't Travis Alexander the one who had the life stabbed, slashed and shot out of him at the hands of Jodi Arias? Who battered whom here?  Are Travis Alexander's not-so-kind text messages to Jodi Arias PROOF that he was a womanizing batterer and bully who held all the power in the relationship between Arias and Alexander?

Alyce LaViolette seems to think so. Does she have any idea the feelings of outrage she is bringing out in the hearts and minds of the real victims of domestic abuse all over the country? Before LaViolette began testifying, I kept asking myself "why would a woman who is so well respected in her field choose THIS case, defend THIS woman?"  Could it be the money? I suppose $250-$300 an hour c…

Was Trip to Cancun Catalyst to Murder? Jodi Arias Murder Trial

Marie "Mimi" Hall was the first prosecution witness to take the stand in the Jodi Arias Murder trial. She took the stand on January 3, 2013. Hall told jurors that she met Travis Alexander through the Mormon Church. Although they initially went on a date, it was quickly recognized that they were a great match as friends, and they remained such good friends that Alexander invited Hall to accompany him on a work retreat to Cancun, Mexico. The trip was to begin on June 10, 2008. Travis wouldn't live to see that day. Friends found him murdered in his home in Mesa, AZ on June 9, 2008. Coincidence, or catalyst? Travis's close friends have told investigators that Arias had been engaging in stalker-like behavior in the months preceding the murder. Twice, Alexander had his tires slashed after going out with other women. He told close friends his Facebook account had been hacked into. Arias even reportedly would use the doggie door to gain entry to Alexander's home. …

A Look At Alyce LaViolette And More Strange Video Footage of Arias Arrest

Yesterday, as Dr. Richard Samuels finished up his testimony the Jodi Arias defense team called their next expert witness to the stand, Alyce LaViolette. LaViolette is a very legitimate expert on the subject of domestic violence, having been one of the early leaders back in the 1970's when this was not a topic that was spoke of often. Jennifer Willmott had LaViolette introduce herself and her educational background, and list her many accomplishments helping battered women and even helping the men who battered them, hoping to return these women to a safer environment. She is likable, and she is a legitimate voice on this topic. The prosecution should not expect this witness to be as sloppy in the trial casework and reporting as Dr. Samuels was. 

While it's unknown exactly how far out on a limb LaViolette will go for Jodi Arias, she is expected to testify about some of the characteristics of battered women, why they return to their abusers - and what some of characteristics are of…

"Cold Justice" Heats Up Unsolved Murder Cases

This is my third blog post on TNT's new reality show, "Cold Justice".  Cold Justice pairs former Texas prosecutor Kelly Siegler with former Las Vegas CSI Yolanda McClary, who travel to small rural towns across America to look at unsolved murder cases.  Their first episode which aired Tuesday has already delivered results - the arrest of Ronnie Hendricks (see yesterdays post for details) for the murder of Pam Shelley. TNT lists an episode guide online, and 
I couldn't resist taking a peek and looking for details on those cases.  I was astonished at what they have accomplished in their first season.  This is more than just another crime drama, these ladies are committed and determined to bringing justice to those who may have escaped it previously in small towns that may lack the resources to bring a suspect to trial.

You can see the episode guide on their website. They give a brief description of the victims and circumstances of their deaths. Here is a list of this seas…
