12/10/2012

After what seems like forever, jury selection is set to begin this afternoon for the Jodi Arias murder trial.

Judge Sherry Stephens said opening statements will begin January 2.

Arias has been charged in the vicious murder of Travis Alexander.  Alexander was shot in the face, stabbed 27 times and had his throat slit in June 2008.

Arias has changed her story several times, she wasn’t at Travis’ condo, a masked man and woman broke in and committed the murder and finally, she acted in self-defense.

Arias has been her own worst enemy throughout the past 4 1/2 year ordeal.  She just can’t keep her mouth shut and gave several media interviews.  In fact, 3 months after she was arrested, she told Inside Edition, “No jury is going to convict me … because I am innocent and you can mark my words on that.”  “No jury is going to convict me.”

The trial has been delayed numerous times as the court was flooded with motions, at one point Arias wanted to fire her lawyers and represent herself, and finally, her lawyer quit!

    It’s about time! I’ve been looking forward to seeing justice for Travis for a long time. She will be fascinating to watch during the trial.

    What a lovely gift for the New Year. I wonder if she thinks 13 is her favorite number.
