It appears Kirk Nurmi may be getting closer to the end of Jodi Arias's redirect. It's being reported that the jury has 100 questions for Arias! Arizona is one of the few states that allows jurors to ask questions of the witnesses, and they have been seen putting pieces of paper into a box throughout her testimony. Once the redirect has concluded, the judge will review the jury questions with attorney's on both sides and decide whether or not each question can be asked of Arias.
Jodi Arias has been on the witness stand for 15 days straight - this is like nothing I've ever seen, and I'm wondering how the judge is going to handle the large volume of questions in that box. I wouldn't be surprised if they had to take time away from trial to review the questions, but I have no idea how it will work.
This afternoon, Nurmi finally got around to the events immediately surrounding the murder. Nurmi asked Arias if she would like to remember what happened on June 4, 2008 - since there are many "huge gaps" she testified to having and she described being in a fog. Arias answered "part of me wants to remember because I feel I'm the one who should sit with those memories because I'm the one who caused it, I'm responsible". Nice to hear her admit she is responsible - at least she remembers that much. Arias talked about nearly having a nervous breakdown after her previous long term boyfriend Darryl Brewer yelled at her! Is she really that fragile, or is this all a huge act?
Arias claims that when she entered the closet on June 4, 2008 she didn't go in there with the intention of getting his gun, rather she thought of it when she was already inside the closet with Alexander in close pursuit. Here's another problem I have with her story. She still insists the gun she used to shoot him is not her grandfather's stolen gun. We know that after she killed him, Arias attempted to clean up the scene and she took with her all the evidence she believed would tie her to the crime. She only left the camera there because she thought those pictures she deleted were gone. Otherwise, I'm certain she would've taken the camera as well. If that gun was Travis Alexanders and not her grandfather's stolen gun, why did she take it and throw it in the desert? Why not just leave it there, wipe her fingerprints off and leave it there? She put the knife in the dishwasher, I'm assuming she wiped it clean first so why take the gun if it's NOT her grandfather's gun?
I can't wait to hear some of the jury's questions and get a better feel for if they are buying this story or not. I'm not, are you?
