Jodi Arias Murder Trial – Day Twelve
What a wild day yesterday!
Have to wonder who will be called as witnesses today.
Lisa Daidone is called by Willmott.
She is an ex of Travis. They met in church and started dating about a year later. They dated for 7 to 8 months, but it was on and off.
They emailed, texted, IM’d and spoke by phone.
Travis dated Lisa after he booted Jodi.
Travis started talking marriage early in the relationship which made her uncomfortable because she was only 18.
The first time they broke up it was because Travis was cheating on her with Jodi.
They got back together and she thought they were dating exclusively.
She was aware Travis was texting and calling Jodi and another woman.
She saw Travis and Jodi together several times. She never saw Travis be affectionate with Jodi, but Jodi did try to be affectionate with Travis.
Did you ever have sex with Travis? No.
Did Travis profess to being a virgin? Objection, hearsay.
After he died, you found out Travis wasn’t a virgin? Objection, hearsay…sidebar.
Willmott hands Lisa a copy of an email she wrote to Travis 12/23/07. She asks it be moved as an exhibit. Martinez objects…sidebar.
The defense hasn’t shown carp for their case!
This email was about breaking-up with Travis. She hoped Travis felt the same and she didn’t want him to continue to contact her.
Did you tell him not to grab your butt in public? Yes.
Did you tell him not to talk about sex to much? Yes.
Did you feel he was trying to mold you to be what he wanted? Yes.
Did you feel he didn’t respect your wishes? Yes.
I sure hope the jury gets it how the defense takes everything out of context!
Did you tell him you thought you made out too much? Yes.
Did you tell him you felt partly to blame? Yes.
Did you tell him you were stressed out about some things and he didn’t care? Yes.
Did that hurt your feelings? Yes.
Did you tell him he was selfish for calling to talk late at night when you were too tired? Yes.
Did you tell him you were sick of hearing about Jodi Arias? Yes.
Did you tell him if he really cared about you, he would tell Jodi to back off? Yes.
Did you tell him you felt cheated on and lied to? Yes.
Lisa says this email was written out of anger.
Holy cow, this email goes back to the first breakup between Lisa and Travis!
Lunch recess is called.
Court resumes; yup you guessed it, 30 minutes late!
It was reported that several people in the gallery were joking and laughing at some of the evidence. Judge admonishes the gallery.
Lisa Daidone back on the stand.
Travis was having some financial troubles and didn’t feel he could be attentive her, so they broke up again.
Travis contacted her by phone several times, but she didn’t answer her calls.
She spoke with him a week before Travis was murdered.
Martinez on cross…
Ooops, sidebar first.
2:09 MST, Judge Stephens sends the jury out, omg!
Court PIO reported that a juror was approached by a reporter!
Strange things began to happen? Correct.
You and Mr. Alexander heard noises outside? Yes.
You asked Mr. Alexander to stay that night? Yes.
Did he make any sexual advances on you? No.
You were at Mr. Alexander’s house and someone showed up? Yes.
Was it the defendant? Yes, she came in the front door, saw us and turned around and left.
Travis never forced you to do anything sexual? Correct.
Did Travis ever scream at you for breaking up? No.
Martinez went to show a grizzly death photo (slashed throat) of Travis and defense objects…Sidebar.
Travis’ sister runs out of court, Jodi is pretending to cry, Lisa looks upset…lots of folks in the gallery wiping tears away.
With all the stuff they say Travis did to you, do you think it’s appropriate to slash someone’s throat?
You had some conversations with people after he was killed about his virginity? Yes.
Willmott on redirect…
One of the times you were kissing, Travis had an erection. Yes.
That upset you, but he didn’t stop kissing you? Yes.
Oh boy, jury questions!
Did some one tell you Travis was texting Jodi and another female? No, they were texting and phoning back and forth and I was aware of it.
Did you refer to Jodi as a stalker of Travis? Yes.
Travis ever call you names? No.
Did he ever make sexual advances on you? No.
You referred to Ms. Arias as a stalker? Yes.
Did Mr. Alexander ever say crazy things about her? Yes, but I saw some of it.
Did Travis apologize to you for his temper? Yes, one time.
Afternoon recess called.
Court resumes with yet another, sidebar…
Nurmi is asking that the ‘stunt’ Martinez pulled with the picture to be reason to declare a mistrial.
Judge says nuh, uh!
Lisa back on the stand.
Martinez asks to approach…
The display of Mr. Alexander’s anger was his throwing a telephone in response to damage to his vehicle? Yes.
Defense calls Desiree Freeman. Senior at Brigham Young.
Daniel Freeman is her brother and she knew Travis through her brother and she met Jodi.
She and her brother would hang out with Jodi and Travis during 2007 until 2008.
She traveled several times with Jodi and Travis.
She says Travis treated Jodi very well. They were affectionate together.
Was Travis flirtatious with other girls? Yes.
Martinez on cross…
The Mormon faith says there should be no sexual touching? Yes.
You should do nothing that could arouse yourself? Yes.
There was and argument and Desiree thought what Travis said was over-the-top.
This girl was 13 when all this happened and can’t remember what was said even though she thought it was over the top.
Daniel Freeman is called. He is a Mormon missionary.
Nurmi is asking how the process works in the missionary work.
Daniel met Travis through PPL.
At first they didn’t get on because Daniel thought Travis was cocky, but eventually became friends.
He met Jodi through Travis.
Says he and Jodi became good friends.
Daniel was Travis’ roommate for 3-4 months.
This is such a waste of time. I’ve stopped typing, lol. Nothing more than normal behavior here. None of this is even relevant.
Daniel and Travis went out to dinner with Lisa and one of her friends. It seemed to him (after Travis booted Jodi) they were on a double date.
Court ends at 4:29 MST.
Defense made no headway here today!
