GMA: Jodi Arias Break Up Murder
After eight days of seeming like a meek and mild witness, a new, fierce Jodi Arias took the stand for cross examination today. She sported a sharp black suit and smug attitude as she was grilled. The prosecution asked her why she has memory problems when trying to remember killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. She said that when men, like Alexander or the prosecutor, yell at her it scrambles her brain. She smiled at answered the questions cooly.
The jury had been getting bored after eight days of extensive details, but when the tennis match-style interrogation began they listened intently. Good Morning America‘s legal analyst Dan Abrams said Arias is an excellent witness but horrible at the facts. Her story makes little to no sense. The best thing Arias could do now is to get the jury to feel sorry for her. She faces the death penalty if convicted.
The funniest part about her story is when she said Alexander broke her finger, leaving it permanently bent. She showed the court multiple times and then the prosecution pulled a photo from months after the beating where her finger was straight. Arias still insisted it was bent.
