    Ahh… you take such good care of us, Donchais! Thank you! BTW, will you tell us the meaning of Donchais?

    • 05/08/2013 at 2:20 pm

      Much appreciation, Donchais . You do a wonderful job keeping s us tidy and clean her in the sandbox.
      HJ, thanks for asking about Donchais’. ‘Handle ‘ means. I’ve been wanting to ask since day one but thought it would seem to be nosy. Same with Syntara.

        Are you sayin’ I am nosy? HAHAHAHAH You got that right!!!!

        There is no actual translation of Denise in irish…donchais or donnchais is as close as they can feminize “Donnchadh” or Dennis. 🙂

        So now ya knows!

    Jay, if you are following…wrongful death action from the alexander family against JA. Should/ would/could they do this? If so, will it prevent her from making $$ in the future?

    • HJ Madison
      05/08/2013 at 2:04 pm

      Only Jay? Ignore if you like. OJ continues to make $$ — even in jail! No doubt, any contracts JA has to make $$ would have some loophole to prevent that.

      • Dewey
        05/08/2013 at 2:05 pm

        NO offense HJ

      • 05/08/2013 at 2:14 pm

        HJ…. I assume he paid for his own defense?? pretty stupid question I guess.. but I didnt follow the trial but Im assuming he did cos he was rolling in $$$

        so would it be different cos the state paid for Jodi’s could they reclaim future earnings ? spose the family would have it in a 3rd party account so it couldnt be touched if that were to be the case?

      Only if she is not sentenced to DP or life (flat sentence or life plus). Arizona has some strict laws regarding inmates making money . If they can’t find a lawyer to pro-bono it most likely would not be worth their time and money – it can be very expensive and what they would recover in the above circumstances would be a percentage of her monies earned (max is something like 40 $ a month) . She will also be restricted as to the amount of money she can spend at commassary(sp) in state prison — depending on her level (based on length of time she has been there and good behavior) If I remember – DP inmates may have more restrictions on this than the standard inmate. Given her great track record in county — i suspect she will be a trouble maker.

      Arizona has an expanded “son of Sam law” it includes monies made from her crim but has also adopted forfeiture statutes that extend to all income or property

    So if we can step through it that fast.. there has to be some sticking points in the jury room.. cos we all got to guilty really fast based on very basic facts submitted by the prosecution.. and we arent even in the black zone yet!!! We did not embellish in any way.. no remote.. no iffy complications.. just basic facts presented. HAS to be sticking points in that deliberation room.

    Carry over response to Gov Brewer thinking ja is guilty :

    Brewer is Anti-pardon all together. She was questioned by a family member of a convicted man at a press conference (a very controversial conviction) about her consideration for a pardon.. Brewer basically stated (in her own words) that the justice system says he’s guilty and she has no intention of considering it.

    As the attorney on HLN it’s really hard to convict someone that you have listened to tell their story for 18 days.

    • HJ Madison
      05/08/2013 at 2:06 pm

      Really? Even thoigh all she did was LIE LIE LIE! Ok, you need to sell that lawyer some oil, MMD!

      • MMD
        05/08/2013 at 2:11 pm

        we know that hj but some of those jurors could have related to even just one sentence she might have said. BTW, I mean’t to say give the DP, not convict. Ya never know what they could have connected with. Maybe one of them has a son that looks like Wurmi or feels sorry for someone in JA’s family – or simply cannot believe that she could physically do it. Just playing devil’s advocate here – don’t shoot me…………….

  7. MMD
    05/08/2013 at 2:06 pm

    Plus there are a lot of comments that got in, even though they were sustained, or told to disregard, can’t unring that bell. I would think just looking at the Alexander family and comparing them to the JA’s zoo, would be enough to convict.

  8. MMD
    05/08/2013 at 2:07 pm

    My only hope is that some of the older jurors don’t get stuck on the pedo accusation even though there was NO proof. Just the suggestion though to the right person…………………….. and they’re automatically tarred and feathered, sadly.

  9. 05/08/2013 at 2:11 pm

    A lot depends on leadership as well.. if they are flailing around without a keel.. they are gonna flounder around. Some of those descriptions written in that text format NancyB posted the other day were a bit scary… like the one who bascially swivelled in his chair, took no notes and smoked cigarettes all day (can they smoke in court rooms over there? )

    • donchais
      05/08/2013 at 2:13 pm

      No smoking!

      • 05/08/2013 at 2:15 pm

        kk thanks to both of you. Wondered cos over here it’s prohibited

    • MMD

    I just watched the video with Deanna Reid — what a sweet girl. When she was on the stand and Nurmi was throwing the “Did Travis do “this” to you? Did Travis do “that” to you?….Wouldn’t it have been awesome for her to have answered “Act like a lady, get treated like a lady!” I’m sure he would have objected and ask that the statement be stricken, but it would have been out there.

    I just hope an astute juror is reminding the others that they should not be considering the sentence at this point. They are, at this stage only to decide guilt or innosence.
    i figured if I was in on this jury, knowing this would be the ONLY time to look at all the evidence, I would use the time to do so. Just reading all her journals would take days! Maybe they divided in to smaller groups and each group has an area to study then come back together on it. If each of the 12 want to look at evthing individually, we could be here till Christmas!

    • Jay
      05/08/2013 at 2:28 pm

      They’ve already taken a straw vote and know where they stand, If yesterday’s separate lunch groups are an indication, they’ve already broken into factions. If today’s groupings are the same that may confirm it.

    OJ did pay for his own defense … in all his trials. Multi-millions. He is in jail now in Nevada on a different crime. It caused quite a stir about the inequality of trials between the rich and the less so. There are many ways around the intent of the “son-of-sam” laws … my guess her parents will make a bucket off their first interviews. I do, absolutley think the State should go after anything she has made currently. I do not know how you can claim “indegency” and then tweet you are buying candy for other unfortunate inmates! 😁

    Thanks for participating in the mock jury… it was very interesting and fun experiment… at least now I am sure they must be stuck!! Not very reassuring.. but pretty clear things are not going smoothly. Either that or they just like talking amongst themselves and keeping everyone waiting cos lawd knows they have been kept waiting over the past 4 months.

    The jury has all they need to bring a verdict in this case. And for those of you who may be worried… I tried to breakdown some of the “stronger” points in Nurmi’s closing. I’m no pro but figured I’d try to put in words.

    “It was a fight, a fight for life, on both Jodi and Travis’s part” – Where’s the evidence? The only evidence shows Travis FOUGHT for his life and Jodi fought to take it from him.

    “Fear, love, sex, lies and dirty little secrets” – FEAR: Travis’s fear of JA. In writing, he was EXTREMELY afraid of JA. Where did she write about her fear or TA? LOVE: Jodi’s overwhelming love for TA – If I can have you NOone can! TA’s love for doing what was right – trying to get help from his bishop and telling JA to leave him alone. SEX: JA’s NASTY sex. Her controlling him with sex. The only thing she has to get guys to want her. Evidenced by the NASTY thing called her va jay jay. Where’s TA’s sexual activity other than with JA? Just Deanna, his first love! And we all know what she said about their sex life! Linda was on the stand… she didn’t testify to having a sex life with TA. If there was one you know damn well Nurmi would have said it. DLS: The only dirty little secrets in this case is all the BS she did before and after she viciously planned and executed his murder.

    “It may be that Jodi didn’t know when to stop” She simply snapped” – Nothing but evidence! She said it herself. He just wouldn’t die. So, of course, she just didn’t know when to stop. Hence, 29 stabs wounds, slit throat and bullet to the head because even when dead his body was still going. She snapped… thinking shit, he’s gonna get away and I’m gonna get caught!

    “This could account for much of what you see in the pictures, the chaos, the blood everywhere, the stab wounds, the slit to the throat – all of it in some ways a sad symbol of a toxic relationship,” – JA’s toxic obsession. But this is not what you see in the pictures. What is shown is TA’s will to live! And boy did he try! The chaos is him giving everything he has to get away from that monster.

    Ultimately, if Miss Arias is guilty of any crime at all, it is the crime of manslaughter and nothing more. = I’ll simply leave this for JM … “If a naked guy…is in the shower shouting at you, that’s not enough to justify manslaughter,” said Martinez

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but does anyone find out the verdict before hand? Like the judge or lawyers, etc.

    • MMD

      NO

    • nyccowgirl
      05/08/2013 at 2:58 pm

      I don’t think so. I thought the CA judge had said he had to re-read the verdict before he handed it back to the jury foreperson to read as he could not believe it so I think even the judge gets it right before it is announced.

      • MMD
        05/08/2013 at 3:00 pm

        He did say that. Love that Judge Perry!!!!

        FYI: There’s no death penalty in Canada since the 1970s. The last execution up there was in the 1960s! So if you are wanting to see people who commit capital murder be subjected to the CHANCE of “getting the needle”, you should pretty much stay put!

    azcentral just interviewed a woman who has come to the trial everyday, She was quite herky jerky talking with emotion and said she, like wobo,” was shaking like a chihuaua”–now a part of our culture I suppose.
    They also interviewed a retired Judge, on the phone, who was asked about the process after the verdict.He didnt know which elements were to be discussed in the aggravator stage. FOL gave a MUCH better synopsis. The announcer also just said that wobo spent “a lot of time…19 days I think, on the stand..” eyes roll.

    was gonna go for a latte but just dont want to risk leaving at this point. mercy mercy
    and please may the verdict show/prove mercy for Travis Victor Alexander.

    I loved it last nite when Deanna was asked how Travis would feel about all this. She very proudly stated that if this were for a friend of Travis, he would most certainly want 1st degree and justice.

    Reminiscent of the Scott Peterson Verdict! What a great day that was! The thing that makes this even better is that it’s a beautiful, cool, partly cloudy day in Phoenix. The kind of day that makes you appreciate your life and freedom. I really hope WOBO gets about 1 minute of fresh air before they put her in the jail van. I hope the guard taking care of her says something like this….”enjoy your last breath of fresh air you nasty Wench, I hope they fast track you to death row and that every day until then you have the worlds worst migraine.”
    I do believe I will head down to the courthouse for the festivities.

    I am so afraid that they agreed on a compromise verdict of a lesser charge. If so, they will be shocked to learn that the punishment will be much lighter than they thought. They were told not to consider punishment in their deliberations. They know death at one end of the spectrum but not that she could actually walk on the other end.. No one would want that, but they may not know it’s a possibility. I just cannot stomach a joyous DT. It’s got to be more than Murder 2!

    • 05/08/2013 at 3:31 pm

      Exactly right! Anything less than M1 & Jodi gets the last laugh!

  132. 05/08/2013 at 3:24 pm

    Dd anyone hear Beth Kara’s saying no matter what the guilty verdict, 1 ,2 or manslaughter they go directly to aggravating phase to determine if cruelty was involved. That the opening statement for that phase could actually begin this afternoon’? Defense goes first, then prosecution. Can call witnesses? If anyone can clarify thi I’d appreciate it. Im not certin I got it right. And I’m all jittery. Think my BP is way up. TY

    • 05/08/2013 at 3:28 pm

      oy.. Aggravation stage. Not aggravating. . I’m aggravated though. I don’t want to wait for another hour… If I were a juror I wouldn’t be able to eat.

    • WhereIsSHE
      05/08/2013 at 3:57 pm

      The aggravator phase should only take place if Jodi is convicted of 1st degree murder.

      • WhereIsSHE
        05/08/2013 at 4:05 pm

        Unless AZ law requires it for the others, of which I am not aware.
        But the aggravator phase is REQUIRED by Arizona statute in the case of murder in the first, because the jury cannot even consider the DP unless and until they find the presence of at least one othe statutorily enumerated “aggravators”.

      • WhereIsSHE
        05/08/2013 at 4:31 pm

        Now I understand there is also an aggravator phase if the verdict is Murder 2 as well.

    I have a three-legged Yorkiehuahua (part Chihuahua) named Samson and he definitely is a shakin’ over the verdict. He told me so – yes I’m a dog whisperer. He wants WOBO to pay for her visciousness which was her choice. It’s time for her to pay for her own actions, not anyone else.

    My lazy-ass kidneys are on permanent vacation, meaning they don’t work anymore, so I have to watch the amount of fluid I drink…that said, I have myself a shot of fine Cabo Wabo tequila waiting to be downed when the verdict is read: a celebratory shot in honor of Travis if she gets M1, or a consolation shot if she doesn’t.

    But it’s got to be premeditated murder, right? Anything else means they had to ignore all of the overwhelming evidence of planning and they sure seem smarter than that. Hope, hope, hope.

        We can. In our minds. A great chance for an imaginative embrace. Who is to say what is more “real.” There is a beautiful poem by Wallace Stevens called “A World of Meditation” and in it Penelope “sees” her Ulysses in the sunshine on her bed. “he was there and he wasn’t” and perhaps we can do the same in the sandbox.

    Judging by the emotional reactions of the trial watchers outside the courthouse, I think everyone who wants justice was so stunned by the Casey Anthony verdict that we’re all skittish. I keep telling myself, different set of circumstances, different jury, different verdict.

    • 05/08/2013 at 3:38 pm

      gotta be…. right???

      • WhereIsSHE
        05/08/2013 at 4:18 pm

        ABSOLUTELY.
        This is a vastly different case.
        The CAUSE (knife wounds to chest and throat) and MANNER (homocide) of death are KNOWN here, and are undisputed.
        (Yes, the defense disagreed with the ORDER of wounds, but NO they did not disputewhat CAUSED Travis to die.
        They only attempted to dispute the REASON for the killing and whether not it was planned.
        NO JURY is going to let this woman walk.
        It is only a matter of degree of the conviction.

        I don’t see any way it could be even manslaughter.
        SHe killed him once, twice, three times (NOT A LADY!)

        IF it isn’t 1s degree, then it was a compromise, because the evidence is too strong on premeditation for all12 jurors to disregard it.
        I think 1st degree is the most likely verdict, but… we shall seein a few short minutes.

  151. 05/08/2013 at 3:37 pm

    they reported that a jury was crying!!!! how do we interpret that?

    • truejustice
      05/08/2013 at 3:43 pm

      wow .. where was that reported ? I’m watching the wrong channel.
      Maybe they are elated to be done, maybe they are sad to be parting (hope not cause that would mean no penalty phase )

    • WhereIsSHE
      05/08/2013 at 4:12 pm

      No way to interpret that BEFORE the verdict is read in open court.
      Could be tears of joy vs. tears of sorrow.
      Could be a simple release of tension.
      Could be a juror who suffers from “dry eye syndrome” (which causes water –not tears, but water– to run from one’s eyes, particularly in very dry weather).
      Could be a raw onion nearby!

      The verdict is in, so tears or smiles or whatever some HLN reporter says he or she sees.. it doesn’t matter.
      The verdict is all that matters now.

  152. 05/08/2013 at 3:38 pm

    Someone please tell me re Napoleon. He was locked outside of Travis’ bedroom, right? if so, how did he eat for 5 days – weren’t his roommates in and out during that time. Did they feed him or notice him acting weird. Maybe he had an auto feeder. I would just think he would be whining, barking so roommates would notice SOMETHING!

    • Robert in Rotterdam
      05/08/2013 at 3:43 pm

      good question. Wobo did set up a dog guard so that the dog never went up the stairs. But still; poor thing must have sensed the horror.

    TOO funny!!!!!

    When she has her opportunity to address the jury I order what she’ll say. And if she’ll say it in big girl voice. Not that phony, sweet, little girl voice. She repulses me. Hopefully she goes off at some point.
    Wonder if judge will continue with next phase this afternoon?

    • 05/08/2013 at 3:53 pm

      I hope … if it’s murder 1 that the family walks out when she speaks.. like Schaeffer said the families for Dennis Rader’s (BTK) victim’s did. They took his power away by not listening to him and Schaeff said the room was nearly empty

      here is the az sentencing guidelines : I believe this is up to date (Arizona has lighter sentences for murderers that some drug offences)

      1st Degree Murder Sentence of death or imprisonment for life or natural life, as determined in accordance with the procedures provided in A.R.S. §13-703.01. A person who is sentenced to natural life is not eligible for commutation, parole, work furlough, work release, or release from confinement on any basis. If the person is sentenced to life, the person shall not be released on any basis until having served 25 calendar years if the murdered person was 15 or more years of age and 35 calendar years if the murdered person was under 15 years of age, A.R.S. §13-703.\

      2nd Degree Murder Except as provided in A.R.S. §13-604(S) or A.R.S. §13-604.01, imprisonment for 16 calendar
      years with a possible increase or decrease of 6 years for aggravating or mitigating circumstances.
      Except as provided in A.R.S. §13-604(S) or A.R.S. §13-604.01, a person previously convicted of
      2nd degree murder or a class 2 or 3 felony involving the use or exhibition of a deadly weapon or
      dangerous instrument or the intentional or knowing infliction of serious physical injury on another
      person shall be imprisoned for 20 calendar years with a possible increase or decrease of 5 years
      for aggravating or mitigating circumstances, A.R.S. §13-710

        yeah, thats what I expect. I also dont expect her to “finally” show remorse. But she’s a lousy gambler; she could have pled guilty and thrown herself at the mercy of the court, Instead she played everyone in sight, including the taxpayers of AZ. She’ll even continue to think that she has a chance at appeal, but I think anyone with any degree of experience will tell you she has far far less than 1 in a million of being sucessfull at appeal.

    So we all know the verdict is in and we’re waiting. I’m watching HLN, and could there be a worse conversation than between Nancy Grace and Jean Casarez? They’re speculating about all the ways the verdict can still get “messed up.” And Jean is talking about a female juror seen with tears today being the same one that she saw looking “distressed” yesterday as well. So Nancy says, “Oh, she must have been dragged into a verdict…blah blah blah.” Gag me! They are so annoying. And they’re also speculating that they also already compromised on no death penalty. Give me a fucking break!
    I also heard that juror 8 and 11, the two men excused previously, are present to hear the verdict. I think their investment in wanting to hear this verdict shows that they really care about the outcome. And I think that means they want JUSTICE!! 3 days of deliberation is not a long time. It’s perfect for a trial of this length.
    I so believe it will come back Murder1 and I cannot wait to see Jodi’s face. But I wouldn’t be surprised if she shows zero emotion. Just saying.

    we have been in and out but one constant: the announcers are, as a rule, stupid. They dont know the case; they talk down to TV watchers of Law and Order by stretching out informatuion as if no one had ever known that. Otherwise, minutes to go….
