The AZ State Circus Returns to Town (10/21)

in Latest News by

.
The jury gets sworn in today (and opening statements begin) in Part 2 of the never-ending AZ State Circus sponsored sentencing re-trial.

We’ll add a new page to the site for each day of the re-trial, so you can comment accordingly as we progress.

In the meantime, these are my comments from September 12th:

“Here’s the bottom line: In the plain light of day with any murder trial, and irrespective of any & all prevailing factors… if the state can prove premeditation… and they can produce clear conclusive evidence to validate their case beyond and to the exclusion of all reasonable doubt… then whoever is on trial should rightly be on the receiving end of a guilty verdict.

It’s when a guilty verdict is returned based on supposition & juror coercion, (and with no valid proof or valid evidence ever produced during the trial) that the whole justice system morphs into BS… just as we had in Jodi’s trial.

Getting back to Jodi’s penalty phase circus, which comes back to town a couple of weeks from now — this is basically how I see things playing out over the foreseeable future:

After several weeks of the new AZ retrial debacle… the jurors, based on evidence presented (or rather LACK of evidence as we had the first time around) will ultimately be split. No way will there be a unanimous DP verdict. Ain’t gonna happen. After all, how can a group of people — however clueless they might be — decide that someone should be killed because they defended themselves against an animal? (Answers on a postcard, please).

That will leave the final decision to Kermit’s BFF, Judge Pickles… who after several weeks (or even months) of pondering (in between her hair salon appointments & typically high-scoring golf games), will ultimately decide on L-W-O-P or some similar half-assed derivative.

Once again the DP won’t (politically) be an option, due the knock-on effect of it more than doubling the current $XX millions AZ has already pissed away on the trial. That of course also being the very same self-defense trial that should never have happened in the first place.

Following on from that — be it later this year or the early part of 2015 — Jodi’s appeals process can finally begin. Then this whole fiasco can finally be exposed for what it really is.

Taking all of that into account, we (cumulatively) have no need to get stressed out or worried over the next 6 months or so. It’s just gonna be a waiting game… until… one day in the future… maybe even in the distant future… justice prevails for Jodi.”

  3. R.Love, I’m going to congratulate YOU for first comment, since SJ had a head start!

    I will be curious to know whether Flores is at the state’s table today. Hope someone tweets about it.

    • ♥ Thanks Journee but SJ is truly the #1 here! 🙂
      Yes I too, would like to know if The Defective Detective is by his side and if so I hope he has his phone on silent otherwise Corinna is going to tweet his big butt right off! I was thankful to SJ for changing the picture on this thread because the last one of Flores smirking was upsetting my stomach!!! We do need to get all of the important news out of the way though, so I wonder what color is the Frog’s ties today?

      Just wondering what happened to the motion about Prosecutor Flores’s Misconduct? Did I miss a chapter?

      • Well, R, that was a part of the motion to strike the death penalty – and as far as we know, the evidentiary hearing that was scheduled for yesterday was supposed to be about that motion. But the hearing was cancelled – vacated, which according to Jeff Gold means not rescheduled. We’re still trying to figure out what THAT means, since it was Judge Welty’s name on the court minutes yesterday, sealing the state’s argument on the motion.

        • My guess is that it is vacated from Stephen’s court calendar and it is now in the hands of Judge Welty, who seems to cater to JM unless I’m mistaken. As you pointed out Journee, that is where Jodi’s motion was referred to when JM shut her down the other morning.

          • Does Welty favor Martinez? I didn’t know that.

            The only recollection I have of Welty’s involvement in this case is that I *think* he was the one who pushed back the retrial date from March. Martinez had sought to delay the Hulsey case saying he had a conflict – Arias case – and the Hulsey judge was having none of it, sent it to Welty to rule on which case should get priority.

            What I am curious about is, IF – and I say if because it was purely speculation on my part – the Motion to Strike the Death Penalty has been handed up to Welty, the obvious question would be WHY?

            And I am hoping the WHY is because the motion shows clear reasons for vacating the original verdict, and maybe the CA’s office finally sees that.

            Did anyone see Heubl’s article after the motion was submitted?

            http://www.crimefilenews.com/2014/10/murder-conviction-and-sentence-of-jodi.html?m=1

            • Wasn’t it only the evidentiary hearing, (speculated by some to be in regard to the alleged TA letters) that was vacated*? I thought that JSS herself was going to take more time with the DP motion.

              *nullified

              • With all of the bullshit in that trial and misconduct it should be a mistrial.
                They don’t need to put Jodi through this. That’s all that they are doing.
                They know she’s innocent, the ones trying to kill her, that’s why they would love to se her get the DP. They don’t want the truth to come out.

      • Can anyone explain to me why Flores was actually there? I’ve never before seen a detective sit at the prosecutor’s table like that, especially his being there for almost all the trial. Is that an Arizona thing? I mean, aren’t taxpayers paying for him to do his job and not sit around at trials all the time? I know he was a witness, but he wasn’t on the stand every day.

        • I thought the same thing but apparently it is a Arizona thing. Weird. I suppose Flores won’t be sitting with the frog any more if he has lost his job. Thank heavens and good riddance to him and his wife! Fingers crossed.

  4. I’m feeling a bit nervious…
    If the law means anything to these twelve people they will be on Jodi’s side.
    Now it’s all in Nurmi’s hands, I hope we will do a better job this time! Give the frog no quarter!

    ♥♥JODI♥♥

  5. I’m praying that the DT will bring in their own Medical Examiner to testify. Is it possible? Dr. Horn was apparently not up on his autopsy expertise!!! LOL

  6. While we wait on important updates. . . .
    ♥ Love to Jodi ♥ http://youtu.be/G-vNNK2r-Cc Jodi did Love Travis more than anyone knows otherwise she would not have tried to protect his character for so long. Thanks to this Prosecutor all of the real dirt concerning Travis has been spilled out into the world for everyone to savor. He made it unavoidable, Jodi once more was made to defend herself. When will the people of Maricopa County open their eyes and see this tragedy for what it truly is…… a giant Farce. Martinez has done a wonderful job of dragging Travis Alexander’s name and Jodi Arias’s life through the cess pools of society. For those who are blaming Jodi for this trial. . . STOP . . .you have Juan Martinez who deserves the standing ovation. He has brought out the worst of Travis and the Alexander family that is left behind. It now is about $$$$ to all of them.
    You, the taxpayers of Maricopa County and the whole state of Arizona are supplementing this madness. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE 🙄

  7. Will Martinez’s theory of gun shot last fall apart in the sentencing trial? He switched his theory to gun shot last to take away Jodi’s self-defense claim that Travis was angry b/c of the dropped camera and body-slammed her, then chased her and she accidentally shot him with his own gun. Martinez got Dr. Horn to testify there was no bleeding from the brain after the gun shot so it couldn’t have happened the way Jodi said it happened. Dr. Horn explained that the lack of bleeding from the brain indicated the “throat cut” came before the gun shot and caused a “bleed out,” i.e., drained the blood from the brain. So Travis was dead when he was shot, according to Dr. Horn (“proved” by the lack of bleeding in the brain).

    BUT, now we know that the real reason there was no bleeding from the brain was b/c the bullet NEVER ENTERED the brain (b/c the dura mater, the membrane around the brain, was intact). SO JODI’S STORY COULD BE TRUE. Are Martinez and Dr. Horn going to insist it was simply a typing error and try to convince the jury that the bullet did enter the brain when Travis was dead but there was a typing error in Dr. Horn’s report? Couldn’t Martinez’s whole “gun shot last” theory blow up in his face? (he said hopefully).

    • And then we also have misspajamagirl who said Travis was never shot. . .no gun shot particles (residue) anywhere to be found. Remember she compared the hole in his head to be made by something such as a stiletto heel, a sharp projectile of some sort. Jodi was not wearing stiletto heels.

  8. I am sending all my positive energy to our girl and to the Defense Team today. Be strong during this rough period and be hopeful that this time around the jury will not be manipulated and bullied into reaching a verdict that the prosecution wants.

    I agree with you about the power of positive thoughts and prayer.
    The amount of strength this poor young woman needs to summon is incredible.
    So many people are trying their best to crush and destroy her, and laughing and delighting at the prospect.
    I really question how their concept of prayer is reconciled with their vindictive malice and hate. They are so adept at rationalizing and justifying it.

  10. I’m going to have to follow Dave Erikson & Monica Lindstrom again, I guess. I blocked both of them so I couldn’t see their comments anymore (plus, they seemed to be gathering hordes of Jodi haters commenting on their every remark). I was going to follow Jen’s Trial Diaries also but she has me blocked. Must have been my tweet about her receiving info from Juan and paying for it in the “reverse cowgirl” position. So sensitive.

  12. Jodi Arias should have been acquitted. This witch trial has been a total corruption of the judicial system. I’d like to bitch slap Lady Justice silly, shake her by the shoulders and tell her to get her shit together.

    Good luck to Jodi and to her DT (luck because we all know that this circus trial was never based on evidence or better off: the lack of ; plus there was so much reasonable doubt that I still wonder how the jury came back with a guilty verdict).

    Jodi you’re in my prayers. Keep your chin up girl!

I’ll hold her still while you let her have it!!!! 😀 You have spoke the TRUTH!!!

    • I think Lady Justice was beaten to within an inch of her life, sometime in early 2013, then bound and gagged and left to die in an Arizona desert.

  18. Jurors receiving notebook with instructions.
    JS reviewing:
    Decide facts, no speculation. Use evidence, witness testimony–decide credibility. Do not judge on her rulings, approaches, or conferences. Accept part or whole of testimony, qualifications. Your notes are confidential, leave on seat, can use in deliberations. Do not use cells in court. No research on your own……

  19. …..do not talk to anyone, including each other. No social media, no blogging. No talking until over. Questions only to JS. No speaking to anyone on any trial subject, or trial parties. No family talk. No discussion of evidence until deliberations. Admonition applies at all times, including to court staff…..

  20. Lindstrom says she doesn’t see that one juror we were hoping would make the cut, that last guy that sparred with JM about DP

  21. ……in AZ jurors may ask questions to witnesses. Submit to JS. Trial expected to last to Dec 18 Mon to Thurs 9:30 am…….

  22. …….may or may not be media coverage. Jurors are not to be photographed. Trial is decision about LWOP vs DP. Do not bring in your own beliefs. Use evidence and facts. Victim impact evidence is limited. May be offered by prosecutors. Defendant will have opportunity to speak. You must accept prior jury verdict. Verdict found DP eligibility……

  23. ……Mitigating circumstances may be found. MS are factors asking mercy: no prior criminal history, abuse by TA, PTSD, borderline, (more I didn’t catch).

  27. Back in session.
    OPENING STATEMENTS
    Nurmi up

    JM objected during KN’s opening….which was sustained. At issue was KN saying “at a minimum, she will spend the rest of her life in prison”

    Nurmi:
    Two people who loved each other. Graphic evidence is emotional. Look beyond photos, graphic, sexual nature. Story unfolds….they don’t show what relationship was. Degrading texts, emails, terms TA used. You will hear. JA recorded convos of sexually graphic content. Story isn’t complete without knowing who both were when worlds collided that day…..

  28. ……Explaining defense will tell you about TA PPLegal job, bad childhood, LDS……

    …..Jodi worked in restaurants, Sandy took care of her, beat her, Jodi just wanted her love. Father pushed and choked her. At 17 moved out with Bobby Juarez……

    …..worked in restaurants. In 20s involved in second abusive relationship. Darryl Brewer. Had young son. Will hear that Brewer didn’t want to get married, J was good stepmother. J wanted to become photographer and artist. Worked two jobs to buy home with Darryl…..

    …..Jodi looked into other sources of income. Found PPLegal Convention. Will hear about BPDisorder. Anything you hear should be assessed by you alone.

    (Martinez’s earlier objection was because JSS has the option of sentencing Jodi to life WITH parole)

  29. Maybe I don ‘ t have complete and thus accurate information_ and I don’ t know what the law permits in opening statements, but from the fragmentary knowledge I have of Nurmis’s opening statements so far, I have to say he was very wrong to have not began his opening by immediately stating some version of, “This is the tragic story of a young woman who had no choice but to kill the man she truly loved in self defense. “… and he should have immediately followed that by saying something like, ” Jodi Arias was the victim of domestic violence which ended in tragedy.”
    I apologize if my opinion is off because of my having insufficient information; I am reacting to my understanding of what I thought I read the first lines of the opening statement were.

    • Amy – I suspect it’s kinda like prisoners going before the parole board: their guilt is a given, they won’t be paroled by protesting their innocence, only by accepting responsibility for their crime and expressing remorse.

      In this trial, the jury is charged with accepting the verdict of the first jury – the jury which rejected Jodi’s claim of self defense. So it does no good for Nurmi to insist to this jury that Jodi acted in self defense, instead is reconfiguring facts already in evidence to construct a context in which Jodi’s actions were explainable and understandable.

      • Amy, your comment is completely understandable and it reflects my feelings also. And Journee, your response to Amy makes perfect sense with respect to what the constraints seem to be in this retrial. It just doesn’t seem right that the defense has to accept the BPD finding simply because that was the prosecution’s position in the first trial. It was not the finding of either (Drs).Samuels or Geffner, two psychologists with loads more experience than the prosecution’s expert(s).

        Does each and every allegation that the state presented during the guilt phase have to be stipulated to here? Or only the verdict of guilt?

        Jodi should be able to state that she didn’t premeditate killing TA, that she never intended to hurt him, just as she stated in the first trial, but I am afraid that by the time all the BS is steamrolled out and facts are predigested by coyotes out in the Arizona desert and delivered to the courthouse in shrink-wrapped bags, Jodi’s voice will be severely diminished. The jury could again end by only seeing her through a haze of personality disorders and hearsay.

        DT’s efforts now, of course, are focused on keeping Jodi off death row, and I know that JW also asked the jury to spare Jodi based upon BPD in the first trial. But JW was able to say then, and the jury knew, that it was the position of the state that she had BPD – that it was not the finding of the defense’s own
        witnesses. And jurors were allowed to consider, therefore, that it might not be actual fact. We don’t know that the four who voted against the DP did so because they believed that Jodi was mentally ill. It was probably a combination of factors including the proven psychological abuse from TA – (or “unhealthy communication” – the jury did see the abuse, however it was characterized by the prosecution’s Dr. Demarte).

        It should still be Jodi’s right to freely state, unencumbered by inappropriate evaluations with respect to her capacity for self-control, that she DIDN’T MEAN to hurt TA. Period. If that is her TRUTH, and what experts on her side can support, she should be allowed to BRING IT AND the remorse for having taken TA’s life. A NORMAL person will always feel remorse about having to defend themselves to the death!

        Just my opinion; I know the DT is doing the best they can under the perverted legal circumstances.

        • whichtrial?,

          Here is the end of Vladimir Gagic’s article “Why the Felony Murder Allegation Against Jodi Arias is Nonsense.” It seems to be along the lines of your thinking. To newcomers: Vladimir Gagic is a Arizona criminal defense attorney.

          “An interesting point about this minute entry is that the government seems to have conceded Ms. Arias did not have premeditation, or intent to kill Mr. Alexander. Aggravated Assault, which is the government’s underlying felony for the burglary predicate, is intent to injure, not kill. If the government believes, as they told the court in their motion, that they believe Ms. Arias committed a burglary by having the intent to only harm Mr. Alexander after permission to remain on the premises was revoked, that is in direct conflict with the allegation she intended to kill Mr. Alexander.

          If I was the defense attorney, I would consider reading the government’s motion supporting its theory of burglary by way of aggravated assault and ask the question “if they government told the court Ms. Arias’ intent was to only harm Mr. Alexander, ie, aggravated assault, why on Earth have they charged her with intentionally killing Mr. Alexander? Even the government doesn’t believe Ms. Arias intentionally killed Mr. Alexander.”

          • Thanks, cc53. I did see something Gagic wrote about the Felony Murder charge over a year ago, but I’m not sure if this ^ was it.

            To me, it’s strange enough that they brought both charges in light of the fact that one of them is Premeditated Murder. But to top it off, the Final Jury Instructions state that the jurors can vote for either or both of the charges, while the Indictment reads, “Or in the Alternative” – then charges Felony Murder after Premeditated Murder.

            This all suggests to me that, for whatever range of reasons, the state didn’t have their feet on the ground as they examined Jodi’s relationship with TA and her actions on the road trip; didn’t have sufficient conviction about either charge. The last-minute switch of the gunshot from first to last in the wound sequencing represents yet more flailing around, even theatrical posturing by the state, as they lodged the Felony Murder charge and contradicted themselves about the evidence at the scene and the use of the weapons in so doing.

            It is appalling that the news outlets just ignored this injudiciousness in apparent pursuit of wit¢h hunt “info”tainment dollar$. They never gave one serious second of airtime to consideration that Jodi’s claim of self-defense could be true. But it is even more appalling that the state endeavored merely to make Jodi LOOK guilty, and that they manifested their confounding maneuvers to do just that – they never made a good-faith effort to really PROVE Jodi’s guilt, and anyone who really studies the evidence in this trial will eventually see that.

  30. Slide up with mitigating factors.
    1 No prior criminal history
    2 27 yrs old when committed offense
    3 Remorseful for conduct
    4 Suffered physical and emotional abuse as child
    5 suffered physical and emotional abuse during relationship with TA
    6 Abusive nature of J’s relationship with TA caused J to suffer extreme emotional stress at time of incident.
    7 J has been diagnosed with PTSD
    8 J has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder
    9 J’s psychological makeup impaired her ability to cope with the tumultuous relationship she had with TA

    Nurmi’s done. It sounds like his thrust is mental illness and a murder two description of the case. Should have tried that the first time.

    • Nurmi is in fighting condition and ready to mix it up with the pipsqueak. His emotional/mental illness approach was good, too.

  32. OMG did JM actually say that in open court?

    Nurmi still objecting vociferously that Martinez is vouching, argumentative, misstating the evidence. Most overruled.

    F**king midget!!!! Still pulling the same tricks!

    • Martinez should be charged with prosecutorial misconduct for lying about, ” staging a burglary”.
      I don’ t know who oversees judges. I saw Kiefer tweeted something earlier about two judges getting in trouble or something( I didn’ t read the article).
      How can the judge allow Martinez to blatantly lie?
      The judge should be reprimanded and penalized by any higher ‘ overseer with authority’.
      It is corrupt that she allows Martinez to blatantly lie, and SHE KNOWS he is lying, and he has no legal right to make such statements.

      • Yes, Amy!!!! You are so right.

        We’ve been saying this since the beginning: Martinez was allowed to use this EVEN during his Closing Arguments, for crying out loud! Jodi was NEVER charged with the burglary at her grandparents’ house, NEVER. It was never proven, never nothing. Jodi says she was away that day with her sister. martinez has no proof, no nothing! It is saddening and wroong, just plain wrong to twist the Law to such a pathetic degree and having a Judge who does nothing to control ”the Prosecutor”.

    • And why is that, might I ask??? When did he become above the law. . . oh right. . .Judge is under his thumb, he is allowed to do anything he wants.

  43. Well now, I’m ready to go to the closet and unleash my twin if things don’t get better. Why oh why, is that frog allowed to LIE in a court room time after time. . .who is it that is paying this Judge and Prosecutor???
    It is apparent they are in cahoots together. She knows he is lying, she has to!!! IMO Judge Stephens is another Judge who needs to hit the dusty trail!! Quick!!

    • Does the law allow such a thing as the ‘ disinterested(?)’ public to file complaints against Martinez’s misconduct, especially his blatant lying?
      He should lose his right to practice. He knows his ploy about the ‘ staged burglary’ is a lie and illegal.

  44. Nancy Grace is up to her old tricks too. Projecting her beliefs onto the viewing public! She even said that Jodi is sitting lower in her chair as a trick for the jurors viewpoint. ?.? SMH These people are ridiculous!!!! Blood thirsty disgusting bunch.

    Juan- Now we have car rental away from her home town. She rented it with blond hair and wound up in Phx w/ brown #jodiarias #3TVArias

    This is so puzzling to me that everyone still accepts this idea that she changed her hair color for the trip. There were photos entered into evidence you room full of twitty tweeters. Someone should put together a picture slide for them and highlight them.

    • The written autopsy report: This is what JM – probably more than anything – didn’t want to have to deal with in a second trial. And the typoz will be a big WTF to this jury, even more so than to the last. If they try to keep the document out, they will look like conjurers having to perform sleight-of-hand to put the “r” back in “poof”.

  46. I pray that Nurmi comes back from lunch with his mind made up to not take any more crap off of the beady eyed little frog! How he doesn’t raise his voice is beyond me. Maybe just a little every now and then might help!?!

    • William Pitts ‏@william_pitts · 4m4 minutes ago

      And the objections start again. Nurmi won that one. And I swear he objected again before I finished this tweet. #JodiArias

  47. Nancy Grace said that one of the jurors was riveted to every word the frog was saying, on the edge of her seat shaking her head yes!!!!! Agreeing with him. Are they allowed to do that??????

    • Appears to be bias to me and the case has just started. Do they know at this point how many of the six men will be on the panel or is that done at the end?

      Nurmi objected twice in the first two seconds of kermie’s opening and I don’t think it’s going to stop any time soon.

    • She shouldn’t be allowed to do that because the other jurors can see it. Defense should ask for her immediate dismissal.

    Here’s our answer – make a date for Dave to be on the NG show and watch the fireworks. Sorry Dave….

  49. TRAVIS ALEXANDER WAS A USER AND AN ABUSER! He was no SAINT before his death and after his death!! He was an abuser hiding behind the veils of his cult like religion. Travis is the reason he is dead today! His very own actions brought him to his death! His family needs to realize it! Jodi is not guilty she was only protecting herself from a vicious abusive attack!! Jodi is INNOCENT!!!

  50. Back in session….

    Nurmi is objecting to every other word out of JM’s mouth….. Somewhat distracting – making the jury focus MORE (in my view) on his words…

  51. And here we have the infamous camera again.. Going through how the Mesa PD retrieves photos off the hard drive.

          • Im going to have to agree. Morticia was on dope and probably still would be had this not happened. She should, instead of seeking blood and vengeance, thanking God that her life turned around and is now married, off the streets and no longer using drugs. Without getting into specifics, I had something similar happen in my life where my life turned around for the better after a tragedy.
            She wasnt even on speaking terms with most of her family back in 2008. Jodi getting the DP is not going to change the fact that she was a dope shooting, mile long record having, 3 baby daddy having floozy back in June of 08.

      • I checked out the segment of the loop that covered Jodi during the day, and today the trial consultant made JJ look kind of stupid, none of the callers were over the top horrible and two in a row were supportive. One woman from AZ said that Jodi was talented and could do a lot of good things to help in prison if given the opportunity. The next caller was a woman from NY who said that Jodi loved TA and that he abused her and he should know better because he was a mormon. I never heard one positive caller last year, and there was also one yesterday. They also showed some of the coverage the trial is still getting online and it really made some people look dumb. I don’t think I will make it through NG though even with fast forward.

There was no reason to bring those photos up again because they already have found her guilty. . .he did it for the SHOCK to the jury and for that he is a SICK man. Scoopy is nuts to ever give him a second look!!! He is a fouled mouthed PIG! The worst.

            • JM is counting on the jury to be indignant about the sexcapades, even prudish and judgemental about its documentation. But since it sounds as if many on the jury are younger women, and there are more women than men, this “strategy” of calling it pornography and blaming Jodi for all of it is likely to backfire.

              First of all, everyone knows that the only people who really know what is going on in a relationship are the two people in it. Young people photograph everything these days and they are not likely to be as shocked as the prosecutor seems to assume. There are no unusual sex toys in the pictures or bizarre costumes. So JM simply comes across as an utter fool in search of nothing, consumed with vindictiveness when he shows the explicit photos of private parts while trying to characterize Jodi as a seductive witch.

              JM’s courtroom presentation continues in the same viciously vacuous fashion as before, but since the guilt phase is now over, it should only help Jodi that he is seen to so furiously grasp at anything and everything in his quest to kill her.

              • Exactly! I have been thinking the same thing. Younger people are pretty accepting of and comfortable with ‘ racy’ sex.
                Also the young women will likely read his ploy as a condemnation, insult and judgment on them, and also__ since young women nowadays are pretty well sensitized to gender issues and misogyny, they might consider Martinez less credible and less worthy of respect.
                And younger people probably view Brazillian waxes as common and mundane as manicures and pedicures; just ask the Kardashians.

          • He has nothing else to work on! So he’s trying to cause a commotion w/ the nude pics and sex tape. I’m sure that he must’ve pulled on his salami multiple times while ‘reviewing’ those pics and especially the close ups (ahem ahem – how many hours does it take to review a close up of Jodi’s snatch? Just sayin’). Fucking pervert!

        • Especially since it was stipulated that it was authentic in the first trial – he himself agreed it was authentic. What, now Martinez the frog has changed his scheming mind all of a sudden?
          Rat bastard!

          • It is another prime example of his deviousness and lack of integrity.
            His unethical actions should be considered prosecutorial misconduct.
            His newest ploy is so flagrantly an effort to deceive, but even more telling and condemnatory is his shameless confidence that he feels he can ‘away with it’ without even trying to disguise his obvious effort to deceive.
            Even the judge realized his dishonesty.
            Martinez’s unabashed disdain for any legitimate constraints upon his methods, motives, and actions, demonstrates his narcissistic attitude that he is ‘above the law’ that is his sworn duty to adhere to.
            A lawyer who shows a pattern of attempting to, and succeeding at acting unlawfully, should not be able to practice law.
            I don’ t know if any ‘overseeing’ regulatory body actually even cares enough to insist that
            Martinez adheres to the ethical standards of the legal profession.

  83. Robert Hirschhorn, a juror specialist who has been on 2000 DP cases, says the makeup for a penalty phase is different than guilt. Women tend to be more judgmental, but more inclined to be lenient when it comes to final punishment. On HLN this afternoon

      • If it was up to kermit, he would have taken a third, forth, fifth …. try on DP phase until he got the verdict he wanted… 🙄

        • I think Sigmund Freud would have supposed that Martinez is sublimating an unconscious desire to kill, transforming an unconscious attitude into a socially acceptable professional position: the prosecutor who can put into motion the process of executing human beings.
          I also suppose Sigmund Freud would deem the existence of the death penalty as a form of sublimation on a collective scale.
          One day, I would like to find out how much Martinez seeks the death in comparison to his colleagues.

  84. So this trial is not broadcast . . .but HLN finds that it is important to replay the first part of the trial crammed packed with all of the lies that Martinez, Flores and Horn created. . . is that in case we have some jurors who might watch Nancy Grace tonight. The media is still doing everything they can to create an atmosphere of HATE and Blood Thirsty revenge! HLN should be BANNED from the air waves permanently. They should be held accountable for the injustices that they are responsible for!

    • Well, seems like Nancy Grace has been described so many times using her initials. …I will step up and be the first person (I think) to address Nancy Grace by her proper initials.
      ..Nancy Grace is Nancy Ann Grace, …so I will be first to call her: NAG or nag. …Google nag & see if it describes a person’s personality or method of communications.

  85. I have always felt we will all be wonderfully surprised by the final outcome of this retrial. It’s just a gut feeling, but why is it there despite my knowing the odds are not favorable? This goes beyond mere wishful thinking. It is in the realm of mysterious things. Well, we will see!

  87. Well, all I can say is interesting. I have been busy with life, problems with the old cathode ray tubes not working in the data box. So I missed all the tweeting, did I miss much? How was she dressed, did Oscar de la Renta dress her? And how much weight has K Nurmi lost, I need to know as I”m on a huge diet, have to lose 30 kilos, lost 16 so far. Will this penalty phase stress me like it did to Mr Nurmi? I look forward to this vital info. Oh, I hope she’s coping. I vaguely heard she didn’t have many supporters, where are they all? She’ll be alright I hope.

    • Angela, hi, I hope your diet works out for you. Let me be the one to tell you that Jodi has many supporters. And yes, Jodi will be alright.

  88. Hi everyone,
    I have to ask someone.
    Is there any news except CNN 206 reporting on this?
    I quit watching after Jodi’s trial last year.
    I know that she was tried in the media. Everyone on CNN was against Jodi from the beginning
    and now a retrial? Is it a trial to see if it’s death pentalty or life or is it a whole new trial?
    I will not watch the babblers on TV. It looks like they’re doing the same thing that they did earlier.
    I believe it’s again for shock value and media money again.

    Will Jodi testify in this one and why?
    Is there a chance she can get less than life in prison or death.
    I keep hopinthat she will get out.
    I stiil believe Jodi was framed, she didn’t murder Travis and some how justice will prevail.
    Life in prison or death is not justice.
    The investigation was zero.
    Why are they calling this a retrial?
    Thanks,
    been gone a long time, but I’m here again for the truth, not the NG’s and bastards on TV.
    Aly

      • Glad to see you back Aly! I feel the same way you do! The truth will prevail, we just have to be patient, that is the hard part! The guilty in Maricopa County should pay for their crimes not Jodi. I’m afraid they have moved on from there so the true authorities might have to do some traveling before they get the real guilty ones.

    • Hey there Aly, great to see you back again. It’s been a long time indeed. To answer your questions:

      1. Most of the reporting while trial is in session is being done via twitter. We post all tweets here at the site to help everyone know what’s going on at the trial.

      2. This is a re-trial of the sentencing phase. LWOP or DP. If there isn’t a unanimous verdict it will be up to the judge to decide and she can give Jodi LWP if she thinks fit.

      3. Although this is a serious part of what will happen, the most important part is after this phase is over: THE APPEALS. That’s where everything will happen.

      4. I don’t know if Jodi will take the stand again.

      I agree that Jodi shouldn’t be where she is. It was her sworn testimony that travis was killed in Self Defense. Self Defense is the right to all human beings when they are in danger.

      I hope we see more of you. Be well.

      ((((Aly))))
      ((((Free Jodi))))

      • Thanks R. Love and Pandora,
        I was hoping that you would remember me.
        It’s so hard to stay up with this and now I know that I should.
        I can not stand the treatment that Jodi got and all of the hate on HLN.
        They never had nothing new, just always the naked poctures and still the same
        old BS that anyone in their right mind would know this was all a frame.
        They showed the pictures time and time again without any reasons.

        They are the perverts in this whole thing, they wanted her found guilty and they are the reason.

        This doesn’t dound like a retrial. It sounds like the first one.
        Same old lies.

        I have one question among many, but after Jodi went to see her boyfriend after they claim she did this, did she go there with her hair still braided in pigtails?

        I still feel the roomates did it and his so called church friends all knew before they left.

        • I noticed, from the Flores report, I think, that one of the roommates, supposedly due to car trouble, missed the church service that he regularly attended at a consistent time each weekend.
          On the particular weekend mentioned in the Flores report, the roommate, supposedly due to car trouble, attended church service at a different time than was customary for him.
          I found this a convenient thing to do if the roomate did not want to run into the usual crowd of people who knew Travis at the traditional time they both had been attending church service.
          The roommate would not have to answer any questions about Travis, like where Travis was and what Travis was doing.
          …. if these were concerns the roommate might have had.

  89. Jason Lam, Defence Attorney on the NAG show last night stood up for Jodi: He spoke for me.

    “Juan Martinez is actually hurting his own case by showing those nude photos; he is abusing her; he is disgracing her in a completely unnecessary way. He’s getting in all those anal sex escapades. He’s doing as much as her abuser did.”

    NG’s only comeback was that Jodi took those pics. What a cow and how impossible!

    • Jodi’s PI Bond, was on NAG’s show. His message was again that Jodi is not happy with her first counsel, and he does question some of the things that Nurmi did to defend her. Working towards appeal, either verdict. He was asked if, like the rumours, he had been looking for witnesses of dv abuse for Jodi, and he said, no, he was not hired for that reason. He is a very serious guy, straight to the point.

  91. NG’s notes from trial that I found interesting.

    You know, one thing that I noticed he spent a lot of time on was the key pad. The key pad. He showed a photo of Travis`s home to the jury and that you get in through — with a key pad, not a key. And then once you get in, there`s an alarm on the inside of the door. You`re got to know the code to turn it off.

    Out to Matt Zarrell. What is the significance — that`s the exact photo Martinez just showed the jury, right there that we`re showing you. What is the significance of the key pad, Matt?

    ZARRELL: Well, that Arias went in there — or she claims Travis knew she was coming. But the state says Travis had no idea she was coming, but she had access to house and could get inside the house with him being aware that she was coming.

    GRACE: Uh-huh. OK. He really was hammering that home. Everybody, we are here for opening statements in the Jodi Arias death penalty sentencing trial. It has just commenced behind us. Let`s go back
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    ..
    MARTINEZ: Victor started to not look so good, because inside the garage is this black Prius, this black Prius that`s Mr. Alexander`s. He`s not answering the door, the dog is going crazy, and his Prius is in the garage, so they decide to walk in.

    They walk in — and this is a two-story house. They walk in, and to the right is the washing machine and the dryer. And then they take a left, and to the left is bedroom. To the right is a study. And as they continue on to get to the stairs to go upstairs, Marie Call (ph) notices there is this strong, pungent foul odor in the air. That Napoleon, he must have really been having real problems here, because this doesn`t smell very good at all.

    And so they walk up the stairs. And when they walk up the stairs, they come to the first door on the landing, on the left, which is Mr. Alexander`s room. And I say “room” because Mr. Alexander wasn`t living alone. He actually had a number of roommates, and the bedrooms were on the second floor, and there were other — two other people that he was renting rooms to. They opened the door, and when they opened the door, Marie Call (ph) stays behind and the two men go inside. But she`s able to see through the crack all this blood that`s in the hallway.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    I was looking through my notes from today. I noticed that Martinez kept talking about — when police get there, they see that Arias has poured water over Travis Alexander`s bloody body. Why? The jury was transfixed as he described that she had tried to clean up this horrifically bloody crime scene with a cup of water.

    He went on to show the jury shots of the washing machine full of bloody cloths where she had tried to wash them. There were bloodstains on the top of the washer — state marker`s number 1b and 1a — Travis` blood diluted with wash water covering the top of the washing machine. And there practically on top of the bloody clothes, a towel practically red was the digital camera. The camera Jodi Arias used to take photos of their wild sex all afternoon just before she slits his throat. Martinez then goes on to lay out the diagram of the bedroom where Travis Alexander had sex with her and the adjoining bathroom where he died.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    Nurmi’s objections – To break Martinez`s flow of his opening statement.

    And I noticed Martinez has a trick. When Nurmi interrupts with an objection, Martinez doesn`t even turn and look at him. He pauses like he`s frozen. He says nothing. He waits until he hears the judge say “Overruled,” then he quickly launches back into the same sentence he was in so as not to disrupt the flow of his opening statement.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    GRACE: As we take you through the crime-scene gallery, to Matt Zarrell. Explain to me the significance of this crime-scene photos Martinez has just started to show the jury.

    MATT ZARRELL, ATTORNEY: Well, part of it shows that the — part of the evidence photos is about the premeditation and part of it is about the sequence of the murder, that the state says that Arias stabbed him in the heart first, then slit his throat from ear to ear at the sink, and then shot him in the head. The defense says it was the other way around, that the gunshot came first and the stab wounds came after.

    • Ok, here are my rhetorical questions:

      1. So the ‘friends’ that started climbing the stairs smelled the odor of decomposition BUT the roommates never smelled anything???? 🙄

      2. “…when police get there, they see that Arias has poured water over Travis Alexander`s bloody body. Why?” : how can that be possible? How was he wet after 5 days??????

    • I had always assumed, during the five days that Travis’s dead body was in the house, that Travis’s dog would have acted in a way to show it was obviously disturbed because his sense of smell could detect something was wrong.
      I saw on a site that featured confirmed scientific research that stated that a dog’s power of smell is so incredibly greater than a human being’s, that a fitting analogy of the degree of difference ( and the study made it clear that the hypothetical analogy is not using hyperbole, or citing the difference in distance in a merely metaphorical manner),
      but literally meant by way of analogy to describe the extreme difference in capacity of smell.
      The analogy was that if you hypothetically compare the human and canine sense of smell to the power of vision of each,
      Imagine what a person would be able to see 1/3 mile away, a canine would be able to see 3000 miles away.
      That, and the dog’s reliance upon its sense of smell as a form of intelligence and understanding,
      causes me to be certain Travis’s dog must have been noticeably upset for days before Travis was found.
