Arizona Woman, 32, faces death penalty 'for brutally stabbing businessman ex-boyfriend to death in his shower after he broke up with her'

Arizona Woman, 32, faces death penalty 'for brutally stabbing businessman ex-boyfriend to death in his shower after he broke up with her' | death penalty whooo | Scoop.it
Prosecutors in Arizona will today begin arguing that 32-year-old Jodi Arias should receive the death penalty for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, who was killed in June 2008.

 

Alexander, a 30-year-old Mormon motivational speaker, was found stabbed 27 times, with his throat slit and with a bullet in his head at his home in Mesa, Arizona days after the savage attack.

Arias, a photographer who had dated Alexander for nearly five months in 2007, has been in jail since her arrest. She has pleaded not-guilty to first degree murder.

   

Accused: Jodi Arias, 32, faces the death penalty after allegedly murdering her ex-boyfriend, right

But investigators and Alexander's friends maintain that Arias became bitterly jealous and 'obsessed' with him after the break up, and even stalked him in the months leading up to his death.

The couple had met at a work conference in Las Vegas in September 2006 and began speaking on the phone every day. Court records show they exchanged as many as 82,000 emails.



In June 2008, Alexander told friends he thought Arias might have hacked into his Facebook account and told her to stay away.

In jail: Arias claimed she had nothing to do with the murder but later said it was out of self defense

Yet on June 4, she visited his home and they had sex before he was murdered. She later told police that they had maintained a secret sexual relationship despite breaking up, ABC reported.

'There's nothing about her that I see in marriage material - or wife material,' Alexander had said, according to his friend, Dave Hall. 'But it's hard to say no to a woman that sneaks into your house, crawls in your bed and tries to, you know, seduce you.'

At first she denied being at his house the day he was killed, yet police found a camera in Alexander's washing machine containing graphic pictures of the pair having sex.

The water-logged camera, which belonged to Alexander, had been damaged in the washing machine, but the Mesa police crime lab was able to recover images, some of which had been deleted.

Among those deleted were pictures showing Alexander posing naked in the shower at 5.22pm, with the last picture showing him alive at 5.30pm. Later photos showed him bleeding while on the floor.

The camera also contained pictures of Arias posing naked on Alexander's bed at 1.40pm.

On June 9, his friends went to his upscale home after he had failed to return their calls. They found him dead in his shower and his body was 'well into the decomposition process'.

Wounds show that Alexander attempted to fight back, court records show. An autopsy found he sustained 27 puncture wounds and one gunshot wound, with the bullet found in his left cheek.

Investigators also found a bloody left palm print with Arias' DNA on the bathroom wall. Her DNA was also found in hair recovered from a bloody wall, according to the Arizona Republic.

After initially claiming that she had not been at his home that day, Arias changed her story to admit she had been there - but had not killed her ex-boyfriend.

 

She later changed her story once again, telling the court that she killed Alexander in self defense after he became angry when she dropped his camera.

She claims he had been sexually and physically abusive throughout their relationship.

'It makes me sick because I know her true side,' Steven Alexander, Travis Alexander's brother, told ABC. 'And I ask people to please not buy into this sweet innocent personality that she puts on.'

As well as the inconsistencies in her story, Arias' case has been plagued with difficulties with her legal representation. 

She asked to represent herself but when she submitted letters to the court that she claimed Alexander had written - saying he was a pedophile - they were found to be forgeries, and she told a judge she was in 'over her head'.

Jodi Arias murdered her ex-boyfriend after he broke up with her. She stabbed him 27 times and had a bullet through his head. For doing this, Jodi could face the death penalty for her crimes. She had pleaded not guilty to her crimes but then she had said she killed him in self defense. She stalked him and was obsessed with him, she changed her timeline of events and changed her story numerous times. Jodi was with her ex-boyfriend the day he died but tried to say she wasn't. She told jurars that he was abusive and mean.

Janae Rensch's comment, May 8, 2013 2:33 PM
Jodi Arias should definitely get executed for stabbing someone 27 times, slitting his throat, and shooting him in the head. If they broke up because of jealous reasons then so be it, that doesn't mean it's okay to kill him because he broke up with you. Her story makes no sense and especially when she's changed it so many times.

Florida has the death penalty out of 33 states. They have had more exoneration's than any other state with the death penalty. There has been more than 20 people that have been released from death row. A little over 70 people have been executed without a fair trial.

Janae Rensch's comment, May 9, 2013 2:09 PM
It's not fair for the people who have been executed without a fair trial, everyone should have a fair trial but there are still many mistakes that jurors and prosecutors should look over carefully. There are not many states left with the death penalty because everyone is getting rid of it. People on death row shouldn't be release unless they have a fair trial and are found guilty of the same crimes or if they plead guilty.
