Will Jodi Arias Take The Stand?

When the Jodi Arias murder trial resumes next week, one question is on everyone's mind:  will Jodi Arias take the stand in her own defense?  Many believe she must take the stand and tell her story if she has any chance of having her life spared.  Thus far, there has been much said about murder victim Travis Alexander's sex life - the victim has been on trial since the defense began their case.  This is a common tactic, and given what defense attorneys Jennifer Willmott & Kirk Nurmi have to work with, I can't say it surprises me.

There is a mountain of physical evidence against Jodi Arias - in addition to circumstantial evidence of premeditation.  There's the "stolen" gun from her grandparents Yreka home 1 week prior to the killing, there is the unexpected detour on the way to Utah, where Arias rents a car and drives to Mesa - stopping to borrow 2 gas cans from her ex-boyfriend in California, among other suspicious activity from Arias.

She didn't help he…
