Jodi Arias: The trial of 2013

NEED TO KNOW
  • Travis Alexander was found dead in his bathroom, throat slashed, shot and stabbed at least 29 times
  • Jury sworn in and ready for opening statements on January 2, 2013

The Jodi Arias trial, after years of delay, will finally begin January 2, 2013.  In what many are already calling the trial of the year, Jodi is accused of brutally killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. Investigators say Arias shot Alexander in the face, stabbed him at least 29 times and slit his throat from ear to ear.

Arias’ story of what happened that day has changed a few times. Originally, Jodi said she wasn’t in the apartment at all. Then she changed her story saying she was there but two masked intruders burst into the home and attacked them, killing Travis. Finally, Jodi Arias admitted to killing Travis but claims she did it out of self-defense.

Jane Velez-Mitchell gives a preview of the trial.
