Jodi Arias Murder Trial – Waiting Game


Disappointed, but no surprise, Judge Stephens still can’t set a firm penalty phase date.

Nurmi and Willmott requested the mini trial begin in January 2014.

Stephens stated she wants to begin jury selection in late September and indicates that pending motions and additional motions she expects will be filed can be resolved prior to September.

The next case management meeting is slated for August 26.

The only good thing was Arias appeared in prison stripes!

    Good morning everyone. Thanks to all for the wedding wishes. I can see problems in wedded bliss already. If the trial starts the week of September 16th. “Hey, Justice of the Peace, do ya want to get this ceremony rolling. Ya honour and obey , whatever. The sidebar is almost over come on. Tic Toc.” I can’t do the honeymoon thing, cause the trial is on. Sorry, Love you. This marriage will be over before you can say Kardashian.

      It was so nice seeing WOBO in her prison stripes. Horizontal stripes make her ass look huge. Heavily guarded, greasy hair up in a bun and no big smarmy psycho grin. Being locked up all on her lonesome looks good on her.

        Well as long as you only obey when it’s convenient then I guess it’s ok. πŸ˜‰ I made sure those weren’t in my vows and that was many many years ago, plus I didn’t change my name. I was going to marry Billy Hirtle in grade 1 until I found out I would have to change my name so I informed him I was very sorry but would have to marry my cousin. Completely forgot the my cousin had a different name! As far as I’m concerned, born with it, die with it.

        Well it’s not too bad today but going to get hot again so I’d appreciate if you would send that north wind again please. Was up with one baby barking to beat the band at 3 this morning and another vomiting about 6.

        Bubble has NO idea what he is in for but it will be fun to hear about it. πŸ˜€

        I’m going to have the obey omitted from my vows. I’m keeping my last name too. Not too many Mac’s on the island. One cat woke me up by walking on my head and big kitty who likes to sleep under the covers clawing at my leg. 2 joys WOBO will never know. Well maybe the rats can nibble on her toes. But even rats have their limits. WOBO, the rat woman of Perryville. Love it.
        Beans, where are you?Bubble, how is Kaya today?

        07/17/2013 at 9:43 am

        Well I do obey when it is to my advantage. Like when she says “Kathleen, you don’t have to go shopping today, we can do that on the weekend”. Then, I am very obedient. As for being told what to do, well you can forget about it. And she doesn’t go there ,nor do I tell her what to do. She is a sweetheart and she loves my cats as much as I do. What more can you ask for.
        How are you today. It’s freezing today.

    Good morning peeps! Thanks everybody for all the birthday wishes. It made it that much more special! Captain bubble you are our hero whether you like it or not! Dp, congrats on your wedding. . Beans, I’ m with you darling. I have disc bulge in L L 4 l5 an and s1. Had series of shots & they did help, but I too have to be very careful in ALL that I do, or else they won’t be able to help me anymore either. Got to stop doin things I normally do or my pelvis gets twisted again! Can’t sleep, stand, sit for very long, much less walk, but my chiropractor is awesome! I’m using voice talk on my phone so excuse the typos! L4, L5, & S1 disc protrusion. Okay enough off topic things. Judge Stephens truly needs lessons!! Great to see wobo in stripes & chains! Jury: “we put her there” always comes to mind! Just wish they would have completed their job!!!! Hope everyone is doing well! Miss u all. I check in, but with little to say. Just know u r all missed & thought of highly!!! Chat layers! Getting sick of this voice talk crap!! Lol!!

      *******wave****** I guess that explains my eaves. 😯

      I don’t think that we have one healthy person on here. Just goes to show that everyone has something and that it can always be worse. We just have to carry on as best we can.

      • janeto
        07/17/2013 at 11:38 am

        Hey MMD. Nope, I can still do eaves! Lol. Just carefully! πŸ˜€ Too much physical jobs under my belt wore my body out! Also have trigger fingers on both hands. Telecommunications of all sorts. (Phones, cable tv., small wires, heavy equipment, & even pole climbing) insurance deductables these days r outrageous!!! Can’t afford surgery on them. 😦 just have to muddle along with the aches n pains!! But, I was smiling big watching wobo in protective custody!!!! She really won’t know what making a living is all about!!
        Never did really when she could have made something of herself!!! Now, just a murderer!! Later all!!

      • dpforjodi
        07/17/2013 at 11:44 am

        Hey, Janeto can’t you get a shot of cortisone for the trigger finger problems and there are splints you can wear. Worked on mine

      • janeto
        07/17/2013 at 6:27 pm

        Hey dp. I gotta GO to the doctor first! Lol! My chiropractor says he’s sure I will need surgery due to I have been wearing splints for 8 months now. I’m hoping for cortisone shots for relief first. Just need to MAKE myself go! But $$ having to fix my siding, & now 2 days ago, had hot water heater go out on me! 😑 will make time soon though…thx for the advice. Mythumb is the worst of the other 2 on the other hand.

    How wonderful is to see Wobo dressed up as “serial killer convicted” on her prison fashion outfit and chains plus the disgusting grease hair. Her heavily armed guards is a constant reminder to how danger she ca be. The judge is still being manipulated by Defense team and pleasing them all the time. Either way the Az taxpayers will get to fork the bill for this biatchy and as much as well let’s get some accomplishment from it. Retrial with conviction and nothing less.

    I totally agree. My guess is she’ll let the new jury see he with long hair one day, then cut it off.

    Kaya is sleeping on my feet. It’s strange, I can see the pups moving around. Any way I can post a picture?

    I noticed to she did not have her chair lowered where her chin was resting on the table. I guess no one there that she needs to make think she is “just this small little person that wouldn’t hurt anyone because she is to busy giving her hair to help others and raise money for others”.

    • MMD
      07/17/2013 at 2:46 pm


      That chair will be right back down nearly to the ground once they have a new jury as we all know. πŸ˜‰

        07/17/2013 at 6:31 pm

        You got that right MMD!! I was noticing het chair again also! Rotten a$$ beotch!!!

  7. 07/17/2013 at 3:40 pm

    It appears as she looks today, Life w/o Parole might truly be the punishment that would be justice for Travis. The forever sleep is just too easy. A lifetime of empty suffering could be the ticket.

    If it’s delayed for Arias motions again, and no trial date is set, let’s make some noise, contact the mayor, reps, prosecutor, governor. Stephens boss, chief judge. this is ridiculous.

    • janeto

      • MMD
        07/17/2013 at 7:35 pm

        I totally agree. They need to send her to Florida to show her how to control a courtroom and keep a trial moving. Either Judge Belvin Perry or Debra Nelson. Neither one of them would put up with any of this crap and Wurmi would NEVER be allowed to recline the way he does nor would Gidget’s Jack in the Box act.

      • janeto
        07/17/2013 at 8:25 pm

        LMAO! Can u imagine what either one of those judges would say to Wormi reclining?? And then telling gidget to “sit down, & stop being ridiculous on you objections!” Lol!!! In other words, sit your ugly ass hiney butt down!!!

    Hi everyone, hope all is well….
    A quick question…my daughter and I sent a donation and package to the alexanders and we just received it back and it said, “attempted, not known”. Does anyone have a current address? I used Samantha’s address that I previously used months before ….p.o. Box 130032, Carlsbad, Ca 92013.
    Ty guys!

    Chrissie A, hi. Jill needs Samantha Alexander’s new address to give a donation. Do you have it and can you post it? I’ve been looking everywhere but can’t seem to find it. I love your photos by the way, Just saw the judge grumpy cat one again, lol.

      Do you happen to have Samantha’s new address for donations? Jill needs it. Thanks for this blog, I’d be lost without it

    • donchais

      hi MMD. I was wondering where you were, then I thought oh no weather change migrane time. But you are up so all is good. I saw and fed mother duck yesterday. She was ravinous. So my bet is she has laid her eggs.

      Nope I’m here. A tad hot and muggy but waiting for the north wind that you are sending this afternoon. I’m dying to know how things went with bubble and how many pups arrived if any. I still can’t get over what that poor dog went through until thankfully bubble came along.

      So how are things over on the rock. eh bye?

    BEST KIND, Raining hard. So I can’t paint today, which is ok cause I am a mass of pains and aches. So I have proclaimed it a Lazy Day.
    Just think Captain Bubble was dog free 2 weeks ago, now he has a pack. I just know he will be a good doggiedaddy and poppy.
    I was looking up making a duck coop for momma and babies.

    • MMD
      07/18/2013 at 9:31 am

      Geesh, wish you could send some our way. They promised thunderstorms for last night as well as for today but nada. Need some relief although thankfully it’s not as bad as it could be. There’s going to be a lot of deaths with this heat wave.

      Did you ever get your bbq bolted to the deck? Plus what’s the issue with driving onto the ferry? You make it sound like it’s a raft being held up with tires and pulled by a bunch rowers or swimmers πŸ™„

      • dpforjodi
        07/18/2013 at 9:43 am

        LOL. After living on Vancouver Island and having to take BC Ferries to the mainland, I developed a hatred for them. And bridges too. I don’t think I could cross the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Not good with tunnels either. Looks like I won’t be coming to visit you. Only the ferry and the Confederation Bridge. Planes are ok though. I use to take flying lessons.

      • dpforjodi
        07/18/2013 at 9:49 am

        BBQ is bungeed to the deck

      • MMD
        07/18/2013 at 9:54 am

        But the Confederation Bridge is not like a regular bridge, it is a fixed link. It’s kind of like taking a nice scenic drive over the water for 10 miles. It truly doesn’t feel like you are on a bridge because there aren’t any tall towers or anything. I love flying onto the Island it is so pretty. Looks just like a patchwork quilt.

        I’m hearing rumblings that the latest issue that they are trying to resolve with JA is that SHE wants Wurmi gone because she doesn’t trust him. If that turns out to be true and because of some AZ law he’s allowed to leave, it’s going to be a hell of a long wait for the penalty phase. πŸ‘Ώ

    • MMD
      07/18/2013 at 10:15 am

      She tweeted about turning down a plea deal. Yeah right, as if they even offered her a deal. She truly still thinks that she should get life with parole (22 years) and has been turned down each time. I don’t think she gets the concept that it is the state that offers the deals not her πŸ™„

  20. 07/18/2013 at 1:14 pm

    Hey ya’ll. A nosy neighbor; an old german woman I call Anne Frank, did some kind of detective work involving facebook and tracked down Kaya’s owner. So last night the cast of Duck Dynasty came by and picked her up. I was sad to see her go but giving her back was the right thing to do. I’m just pissed Old Anne Frank stuck her nosy into my business.

    • MMD
      07/18/2013 at 2:07 pm

      Ah no bubble – did they explain why Kaya was in the water to start with 😯 Under no circumstances should they have gotten her back after what happened especially since she had not even been chipped!!! I’m so sorry bubble. I truly am.

      I don’t blame you about being pissed at Old Anne Frank! I would be livid in your shoes!!!

    • MMD
      07/18/2013 at 2:23 pm

      Another good example of why I refuse to use FB!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. 07/18/2013 at 1:15 pm

    Also, is it true she asked for new counsel?

    • MMD
      07/18/2013 at 2:12 pm

      Dunno, but that is floating around and the meeting took place in chambers with JA, the defense but NOT JM. I can totally see her pulling this to delay, delay, delay. After all, she’s probably getting tired of being on lockdown 23/7 and wants to be back running the show. Nothing she does would ever surprise me!!! After all, she probably thinks she’s still “winning”. 😦

    • 07/18/2013 at 8:22 pm

      Thanks, Mom. Dropped a note to the Alexanders today. Let them know there was a great band of folks here supporting them, and a community of supporters worldwide. Sent them a medal from my service overseas, as I don’t really have cash on hand to send, but told them that I commended them for their courage, honor and dignity in the face of evil and that they were in our thoughts and prayers everyday. I shouldn’t have shared that. I’m not looking to impress anyone or fish for compliments, I was just a bit sad and wanted to connect with my family here…

      BTW, I typed in JA last night to see any updates on the case and saw her artwork site, clicked on the Write Me tab and saw where I could send her a postcard…Hmmm, what can I do?

      • donchais
        07/18/2013 at 8:38 pm

        You have family here, always! The Alexanders know that also. How cool is that Travis brought us together???? He reached farther than he ever knew…or maybe he did, and just gave us the ability to pay it forward for him!

    Hi all! Enjoyed catching up on all the posts! Very interesting happenings with all our lives, huh?
    ….I especially love the medal from bubbles! Money can’t buy that kind of thing. How amazing. What a precious thing to give up….they will be so shocked to receive something so valuable…. I would b so honored to get that. Wow….tearing up..
    Ty Dpforjodi! U r so sweet to get me the correct info for alexanders address. It’s a shame because two numbers were just transposed and I have to pay shipping for the package all over again. :(. You’d think the postal service could have figured it out by the name and the rest of the address. Oh well, it’s worth it! Ty again.

    07/19/2013 at 7:53 am

    Bubble – my friend you constantly amaze me and in a good way!!! What you did for Kaya/Lucky and then the Alexanders shows how kind you are. I’m sure that letter and medal will mean more to them than any of the donations because it came from the heart. You have affected so many people in a positive way. I know that you feel that your service was for naught but I’m sure there are many people that you have no idea how you have improved or changed their lives. Look how we feel about you on here πŸ˜€

    Most people when they are feeling down have a pity party but you do the opposite, you give. That is a truly incredible quality to have. Hell, I was ready to have a pity party for you because of Kaya/Lucky πŸ˜‰

    Please keep sharing the good and the bad. That’s what family does and we most certainly are one here thanks to our awesome host donchais and Travis Alexander. πŸ˜€

    I’m casting the evil eye on Ann Frank for contacting duck dynasty. I doubt very much they paid the vet bill that Bubble had to fork out.

    • MMD
      07/19/2013 at 10:13 am

      I doubt they paid it either. But that’s not the point really. Obviously they didn’t care enough about that dog to have it chipped or tatooed and how did it get in the river in the first place!!! It infuriates me because Bubble would have taken such good care of Kaya/Lucky whereas they didn’t even appear to even be looking for her!!!!! I have never watched duck dynasty so I have no idea what kind of people they are but I think Anne Frank was just looking to make a quick buck, imho.

  34. dpforjodi
    07/19/2013 at 10:25 am

    I am just heart broken about it. And how did Kaya get that scar. Bubble would have been such a good poppy. Ann Frank just didn’t want Bubble to have more dogs.
    I don’t watch duck dynasty but I’ve seen it advertised.

      • MMD
        07/19/2013 at 11:04 am

        Isn’t it on Netflix? If not, you can probably download it from iTunes but I bought the series for $75 on Amazon.ca. Suits is about the top law firm in NY but it really more about the characters. The lead is known as the best closer in cases and his associate really doesn’t have a law degree. Doesn’t get any respect because it is on USA but I enjoyed it. Now watching season 3 on Bravo.

    I’m enjoying a lovely north wind and it’s supposed to rain, although they keep saying that but tomorrow it’s back to over 100 with the humidex. Actually turned off 3 fans and closed a couple of windows. Enjoying it while I can but can feel the start of something in my head. Truly hope I’ve nipped it in the bud!!!

    Rec’d an email from a friend today who drove close to 3 hours for a short annual vacay with a couple of friends from back in school and they spent their time in cottage country in the house with the A/C blasting while they enjoyed the view of Georgian Lake. LOL So much for getting out of the heat!!!

      Nope, never watched it. I rarely watch tv. Just find a good show and then buy the dvd and go on a marathon. Need to come into the 21st century and get on demand. I truly don’t do change well 😦

      • dpforjodi
        07/19/2013 at 11:27 am

        It’s probably for sale on the pbs website. Oh, it was so good. About a Scottish vet that moved to the Yorkshire dales of England and set up practice with 2 other vets. The first series is pre WWII and the other after the war. Saw it many times over and never got sick of it.

    It’s so nice of you and your daughter to send a parcel to the Alexanders. I’m sure that they will be most appreciative, especially with all the delays that JA is causing. I truly hope that they are having a nice break away from everything in Arizona and not having to see or hear about JA!!!

      07/22/2013 at 3:07 am

      Ty, MMD! Yes, it is a cruise. We will fly to anchorage and leave from Whittier. Then, we will cruise to Vancouver and stay a week there. Maybe Vancouver island. We are still getting our reservations for a place to stay. Any suggestions on any ‘must sees’ in Vancouver? Not sure if you know the area at all or not, but maybe you know something we shouldn’t miss..ty..take care, Jill

        Hi Jill. The summer I spent in Vancouver was just work and sleep. There is the Vancouver Aquarium. Stanley Park. Sorry I can’t think of anything else. I think trialwatcher is from Vancouver. I am familiar with Nanaimo and Protection Island. Some of the cruise ships stop in Nanaimo. If you go there I can help you. There is a foot ferry that leaves the Boat Basin in Nanaimo to Protection Island. It will take you to the Dinghy Dock Pub. Which is a fun place to eat on the water. Calamari is tasty. Then you can walk around.Its not a big island about 1 mile long. As your going over the blue house on the water with the cedar gable was mine. I had a dog friendly B&B. Spyglass Lookout is nice.
        If you are there during the week of the bathtub races. There are lots of celebrations. Hope that helps some.

    OT – just googled Beth Karas and discovered that she has a really nice website http://bethkaras.com/ and is doing consulting as well as working with all the networks plus other projects. I dropped her a note telling her how glad I was that she escaped HLN and how much I admired her unbiased coverage on various trials.

    • 07/20/2013 at 11:04 am

      Beth was the guest on Tricia’a True Crime Radio last Sunday. She talked about her site, which she will be blogging from at some point and also said she will be working with Wild About Trial in the future. Just to clarify, she said she never actually worked for HLN, it was TruTV that she left.

        Sheesh, I wasn’t getting picky with you merely passing on what she said as many people, including myself, thought the same thing. Kinda bummed about the Z trial and seeing Stabby again and realizing how this bullshit is going to drag on forever for the Alexanders, I needed a breather so I hunkered down with some books and tunes – Have a great book recommendation for you if you want a break from crime stuff – Cathie Pelletier – “The One Way Bridge” Check it out on Amazon.

      Most of us have been around since the start of the trial but now most people just pop in now whenever something is happening with the case. We are from all over the world, literally and everyone has something to contribute. We’re respectful of each other’s opinions, thoughts and feelings and have each other’s backs at all times so jump right in.

      Normally when court is in session it is fast and furious with the comments but during this down time our awesome host donchais lets us go slightly off topic as long as we play nicely and don’t wander too far. If we do, she’ll let us know. πŸ˜‰

    Bubble, I think the time has come for you to change your name to Bubble love. Yes, yes, I know the story behind Bubblebutts, but it simply will no longer do; you have shown your real self. I have always called you Bubble love when responding to you directly, and it is now obvious it is a much more fitting nom de plume for you, and far more befitting a hero such as yourself. You are like those bubbles that children so adore; they delight the children, and they delight the adults watching children play with them. Those silly little bubbles just magically appear out of thin air and soap, asking nothing but bringing joy, love, and a smile to everyone’s face. Then they gently float away, only to magically reappear and bring renewed enjoyment. If that isn’t a description of you, WOBO really IS innocent.

    I hope you take my advice, because if ever there were a hard headed woman, it is I. (Grateful acknowledgements to Cat Stevens.)

        Not well, by any means, just waiting to see a specialist on the 5th of August, then probably surgery. It was going to be a 3 month wait, but they had a cancellation; my friend said “Someone probably died waiting for their appointment!” I may be next. I’ve taken to calling every morning at 8:15 to see if they’ve had a cancellation. So far, no luck.

        My mind is going — where are you exactly? PEI? Many, many, many years ago I spent a summer in Nova Scotia riding for a pony club in the Prince Philip Cup Games. We competed every weekend, either in the Cup Games or other pony shows. My pony’s name was Gingerella (she came with that name — I am far more creative!) and she was every bit as hard headed as I was. That is not necessarily a good combination, let me tell you! We actually won in Nova Scotia and in New Brunswick, and whatever the next level was. I can remember even then people told Newfie jokes, but being a damn foreigner, I didn’t get them.

        LOVE Carole King — did you see on PBS when she was the recipient of the Gershwin Prize for songwriting? Only the 6th (5th if you count Burt Bacharach and Hal David as one) recipient and the ONLY woman! She is 71 and still rocks like nobody’s business! Watch “Grace of My Heart” — it is basically her story, all about the Brill Building era and then some, but it is a hell of a lot of fun to guess who the others are. It wasn’t big at the box office, but has a pretty good cult following on DVD.

      • 07/20/2013 at 3:37 pm

    Hello to everyone here on this wonderful blog from Anna the banana. OT as usual…I’m afraid to admit I’m still in island-shopping mode. I talked to some Time-Warner rep in the Philippines for like 5 hours the other day (no really, it was about 5 hours…), and he claims that they have a better snorkeling area than the Great Barrier Reef. (I know….but he said it’s cuz there’s no sharks there…and that just wakes me up to much safer fun ideas!) Anyway it’s called Boracay and apparently their Paradise Island is something to behold. Well, we can’t afford the Philippines, and btw they suffer 6 months of β€˜rain season’…which I’m really not in to. Definitely need to research weather conditions for our new home. So in the meantime, if you’d like to dream along with me, check out these islands for sale…you can even rent one… (lol…just having fun…trying to pass on a bit o cheer mmkay?): http://www.privateislandsonline.com/islands

    I hope it’s o.k. to share this.

    This beautiful song “Oh Heavenly Day” by Patti Griffin has always reminded me of Travis and his fabulous full of life smile. I heard this song for the very first time around the time I learned about his murder back in 2008. It has stuck with me DEEP, especially one particular line in the lyrics “The smile on your face I live only to see”. Then I learned why Patti Griffin wrote the song. She said it was her first love song and she actually wrote it for her dog. Well then I was in a pile! So every time I hear this song I picture Travis and Napoleon running, playing, laughing and Travis smiling that amazing Travis smile.

    Oh heavenly day, all the clouds blew away
    Got no trouble today with anyone
    The smile on your face I live only to see
    It’s enough for me, baby, it’s enough for me
    Oh, heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day

    Tomorrow may rain with sorrow
    Here’s a little time we can borrow
    Forget all our troubles in these moments so few
    All we’ve got right now, the only thing that
    All we really have to do
    Is have ourselves a heavenly day
    Lay here and watch the trees sway
    Oh, can’t see no other way, no way, no way
    Heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day

    No one at my shoulder bringing me fears
    Got no clouds up above me bringing me tears
    Got nothing to tell you, I’ve got nothing much to say
    Only I’m glad to be here with you
    On this heavenly, heavenly, heavenly, heavenly
    Heavenly day, all the trouble’s gone away
    Oh, for a while anyway, for a while anyway
    Heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day

    MMD, it seems mother duck and the 2 male ducks have left, since I haven’t seen them in 4 days. However the other female has laid her eggs. Good news is that the gulls are nesting somewhere and are not around. I do hope they comeback. The grub is really good, premium duck feed. Do tell me they are coming back?

    It’s called the shoe darlin’, the shoe πŸ™„ That is pretty close to what JA is going through now except that she has her one hour to shower/use the phone, etc. That is a federal prison, not state which is much different. That is why I don’t want her to get life. She would have too much freedom if allowed in the general population which ya know she’ll manipulate herself into. She needs death row which is like the shoe so that she will have no contact with another human except through air grates while she slowly goes insane waiting for her execution date.

I said we would pay for the materials. I saw one gull and chased it away. Must go and take food in so not to attract any crows or gulls. I also gave her some kibble.

        Hello Schaeffer. Great explanation on my Crimson Tide, thank you.

        Well, the original trial plan was supposed to be Premeditated, M1, DP by the end of May and WOBO locked down in Perryville with an occasional headlines of her getting her Ariass beaten by Angela, so I had hoped; but as usual in her aggravating fashion, this convicted murderer #458434 would drag this trial out into football season. May she have many run-ins with the gnarliest hungry roach each night she lays down to sleep in a very, loud, noisy cell.

    From Travis’ blog written after he met Nick Vujicic a motivational speaker from Australia who was born without arms or legs:

    “The difference between a Stumbling Block and Stepping Stone is the Character of the individual walking the path. To me this is a lesson learned that any of us no matter what lot we have been given in life, can, like the Phoenix rise from out of the ash and accomplish absolutely anything that we choose to. All that is required is that we acknowledge what we have and the source of where it comes.”

    A few days later, Travis wrote this on several brown paper bags filled with toiletry items and passed them out to homeless people he came across on the street. If you want to learn the stuff a person is made of, study his actions.

    So sad what the Alexanders, his friends, Napoleon and the world has lost…a beautiful, loving, kind, giving and decent human being.

    As for the convicted murderer #458434, I can’t name one kind, loving, decent humane act she has ever done in her vile 32 year life.

    Hello all, Do any of you guys know if the Richard Chrisman trial in Arizona will have cameras in the courtroom? Juan is prosecuting this one, too. I think it begins July 31, 2013.

    • MMD
      07/23/2013 at 7:32 am

      Don’t know yet. I know that there was a petition at the local AZ station to get it covered. This is the latest on it. As of now, there is a question mark as to the start date. As we discovered with the JA hearing a pool camera does not mean live streaming 😦

      Court date: 7/29/2013 @ 8:30

      Case #: CR2010-153913

      Case event: Pretrial Conference (Trial 7/31?)

      Camera ruling: Pool Camera Approved/No Hallways or Lobby

      Judge: Sherry Stephens Prosecutor: Juan Martinez

      Defendant: Richard Chrisman Defense attorney: Patrick Gann

      Case notes: Phoenix police officer charged with 2nd degree murder, aggravated aasault and cruelty to animals (misd.) He allegedly used excessive force by shooting a man and his dog while responding to a criminal damage incident.

  72. 07/22/2013 at 9:16 pm

    So WOBO is blaming the taxpayer expense on Juan Martinez because he won’t accept her plea deal (which I’m sure would have her free in 20 years!) I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that she lays the blame everywhere but herself! I want just one crack at her — JUST ONE!!!

    These are her followers:

    Associated Press

    PHOENIX (AP) — A New York man has been arrested on allegations that he made threats on Twitter against two Turner Broadcasting anchors who angered him with their coverage of the Jodi Arias trial, Arizona authorities said Monday.

    David Lee Simpson of Bath, N.Y, was infatuated with Arias and became upset by comments from the two female anchors, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.

    Investigators found guns, handcuffs and other items in Simpson’s car after taking him into custody in Bath, Arpaio said.

    The sheriff declined to name the two anchors because he says Turner Broadcasting had asked his agency not to publicly identify them. But he did say one works out of Atlanta and the other out of New York.

    An indictment that charges Simpson, 48, with three counts of computer tampering and two counts of stalking had not yet been made publicly available late Monday afternoon.

    Simpson also is accused of threatening a Phoenix woman who defended the anchors online.

    Arpaio says Simpson quit his job last week at a Bath auto repair shop and was later pulled over by police as he was leaving town.

    The sheriff said investigators don’t know whether Simpson was intending to carry out his threats, but he said items found in Simpson’s vehicle were disturbing. Authorities found several guns, handcuffs, zip ties and a news clipping about last December’s mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

    Simpson is expected to be brought to Arizona on Wednesday, Arpaio said. Court records show he does not yet have a lawyer.

    Earlier this year, a Maricopa County jury convicted Arias of murder in the death of her boyfriend Travis Alexander, but the jury later deadlocked at the sentencing phase of her trial.

    A new jury could be impaneled to decide sometime in late September whether Arias should be sentenced to death or life in prison.
    Another whacko behind bars!!

      Yep I’m awake but not up yet. Yes The Killing is good although the actor/character of the replacement detective kinda bugs me. Can’t figure out why yet? I had read previously somewhere (it was in a review) that they had a problem watching it on a computer because it was shot so darkly and it wasn’t until they watched it on a tv that they realized how much they missed. I’m watching it on a laptop and although it is dark, I don’t have any problem watching it. I love how they are shooting it in British Columbia but then keep throwing in a shot of the Seattle space needle (through the pouring rain). Love Brent Sexton and Billy Campbell. πŸ™‚

        Sounds good. I just added it to my wish list until I get through my tv marathon. Thanks for the heads up. Always looking for new authors/books since one of my favourites, Stephen White is finishing his series this year after 20 books 😦

      • 07/23/2013 at 8:38 am

        Missed you too, I’ve been catching up, thanks for the laughs.

        I’m re-reading all the ‘Parker’ books by Donald Westlake(writing as Richard Stark) while waiting for all my holds to come in – like Stephen White too.

    well I am off to paint, only 1 more chair and part of the chaise. Then its bath bombs Homeland security these are bath fizzies that look like cupcakes, not the exploding kind.. Petuli, Ylang Ylang and either neroli or some sort of citrus essential oil. Going to smell like an old hippy. Well a clean one. Do you think if I add paint thinner I could get rid of this greenish hue? I don’t like oil paint.

    Schaeffer, this is OT but as a fellow fan of Carole King I wanted to tell you about a cd I just found at the library. It’s called ‘The Legendary Demos’. It contains all the original demos she made to pitch songs before she was a recording star – very bare bones and beautiful. Sending positives vibes concerning your health issues, hope goes well.

      Ya have to wonder what’s missing in a person that would lead them to become obsessed with a psycho killer in the first place and then think it’s a good idea to hang someone you disagree with and ‘gut them like a deer’. Thank goodness he was stupid enough to tell somebody what he was planning and they had the good sense to turn him in.

      A prime example why I refuse to go on FB or Twitter. They provide a direct line into your private life, activities and schedule. Even though Turner asked that Sheriff Arpaio not release their names they still have been by some sites and they would be everyone’s first guess. I’m just surprised it didn’t happen sooner, sadly.

      • 07/23/2013 at 3:41 pm

        Agreed, this is the only place where I feel somewhat safe. OT, but two more author suggestions if you haven’t read them and appreciate amusing modern lit. are Jonathan Tropper and Richard Russo. Russo wrote ‘Nobody’s Fool’ – one of my favourite books ever – among others.

    • 07/24/2013 at 8:35 am

      Anna, I really like this one – wasn’t aware of this guy – thanks. Check out more Reckless Kelly, a really under-appreciated band, imo. Don’t know if they’d be to your taste or not but I also suggest looking into The Subdudes, they’re from New Orleans – broken up now but were together for about 20 years – folksy, bluesy, countryish.

      • Anna

        I don’t think that she gets to read her twitter feed because there are a lot of negative comments. But then, she probably figures that she is still “winning” and they’re just haters. Can’t wait until she gets her just punishment!!!! Truly cannot wait until she ceases breathing!!!!

    And how ’bout 10 minutes of old Steven Wright comedy? I mean I know he’s really weird (I’m not tho…lol). We went to see him in Atlanta once and he was so stoned he couldn’t perform. He pretty much just sat on his winged back chair and stared at us. But I think he used to be good…comedy is a personal opinion…i post, you decide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5ErMolRE8M

    07/25/2013 at 11:49 pm

    Wow, I was just thinking about the time this whole arrest and trial has taken. In the time it took for jodi to be arrested, tried, convicted, and eventually sentenced, I managed to move 5 times, have 4 jobs, get married, and pop out two kids. That is blowing my mind….

    Btw, hello everyone! Been a long time, but I always have the Alexander’s in my thoughts and prayers. But it has done my soul good to not be seeing or thinking of jodi everyday

    • MMD
      07/26/2013 at 6:49 am

      Sad isn’t it Katie especially when other states can get it over with much faster. What the Alexander family has gone through no family or person should ever have to suffer.

      I do agree with you though that it has been really nice not to see, hear or listen to anything about JA for the past while. As long as she is still on 23/7 lockdown I can live with that for the moment.

      Hope you’re having a good summer Katie πŸ™‚

    Hiya DP πŸ˜€ The schmuck partner was just growing on me and then he turned into a real dick again. Now that he is seeing the light I have hope for him again, maybe. I can’t figure out how they will do season 3 without Billy Campbell or Rosie’s parents………

    • dpforjodi
      07/26/2013 at 9:45 am

      I had to look up Billy Campbell. The schmuck partner I thought was from season 3. Hope I didn’t give anything away. Season 3 is just as good. Rosie’s father kind of reminded me of James Gandolfini. While I was watching it he had died. What a loss.

    Dpforjodi — thanks for the news about Jane Velez-Mitchell. That is great to hear that someone has written a book that centers on (the details of) the Jodi Arias case. That releases me from that chore. Somehow, I got roped into writing about the evidence presented at the Trial, so that the case could be understood prior to the Retrial [of the Penalty Phase of the Sentencing Proceeding]. There were so many twists and turns because of the contradictory statements that had to be worked in, that it was taking a lot longer than it should have. In other words — it was very, very, VERY time consuming.

    I’ve been working on (a report that was supposed to be a brief description of) the case for several weeks, preparing for the Retrial — and, there was no time left to do anything else. It was actually VERY frustrating, because there seemed to be no end in sight when accomplishing nothing other than rehashing the events of the Trial [on paper] — although for the benefit of those who really wanted to know more of the details prior to any involvement. Because [it was figured out that] I had followed all of the Trial, and also watched quite a bit of the updates on the cable channels, the job was mine to get the facts tied together into an understandable fashion, in order to prepare everyone for the second go-round.

    The responsibility for an unblemished update was handed to me, which I accepted, believing the chore to be one that would be easily taken care of. I still might finish it, since I’m about three quarters through, but there is no rush now — because it seems that putting everything together in one simple packet has already been accomplished by someone else (with much more access to those with knowledge of all the minute details). Since I had been restricted to only what could be explained or proven, some of the testimony was not able to be worked in the way that I thought would best fit. (Did I mention how frustrating this was?) Actually, there was quite a bit that could not be worked into the report that had morphed into a book [from the ever-growing length].

    We have discussed some of these problems in this room (which I felt should have been able to be rehashed in a report on the matter [especially since those in this room understood this particular case and could address certain facets of the case much better than any of the high-priced commentators]). However, it was decided this additional material would have thrown the novices off. Oh well — If there is a real need to know the background right now, my friends can purchase the book [by Jane Velez-Mitchell] that can provide more insider information. TIME FOR A BREAK! Then back to the cause.

      jad…whatever, if true, jvm has written will be self-serving and lacking truth, facts and details as all of her work does…you have provided enormous research and don’t let it your talent go to waste!!!

        There would be no way I could read that book without hearing her voice screaming every word….I’d read a book written by Beth Karas however.

      Jad you provided a very important service to us on this blog with all your information and perspective and we all learned from you. A lot!!!!!!!!

      Anything from JVM will be a waste of money and not worth the time nor effort to read. In other words, it will be a sensationalized piece of drivel not even up to the standards of the worst tabloids. As for your friends, tell them to read all the posts you have put up here at the university. They are more insightful than all the talking heads combined!!!

      I defy anyone to write and explain this entire case in 272 pages as JVM plans to, probably double spaced. I made the mistake of reading something she wrote before and never again!!!!! Now you finish your work, that I will read with pleasure. πŸ˜€

        JAD – Agree 1000 fold with Donchais, ByeByeJA & MMD! I would not consider anything JVM pens as anything but a money making scheme and tripe. You are the real deal and with talent to spare so I sure hope that you don’t drop the book.

        I got this email today from Chris Hughes about the Travis Alexander Legacy Fund:

        Nancy ,

        We are excited to announce the 1st annual Travis Alexander Legacy Day of Service! It will take place July 28th, 2013, and continue every year on July 28th, Travis’ birthday.

        This is a day when we can honor Travis by doing what he loved to do most…serving others. It was Travis’ goal to help better the world, and he will continue to accomplish this through each of us! You can do something that is important to you, or something that was important to Travis. Some examples:

        – Hand out brown paper bag hygiene kits to the homeless with Travis’ quote: “The difference between a stumbling block and stepping stone is the character of the individual walking the path.”

        – serve food at a homeless shelter

        – volunteer at an animal shelter

        – fundraise for an animal shelter

        – plant some trees

        – clean up a park/street

        – Become a big brother/big sister

        – Read/learn/teach personal development/leadership

        – Buy reusable grocery bags (maybe even a set for a friend)

        – Be a friend to someone in need of a friend, or a better friend to one you have

        – Random acts of kindness

        The list could go on and on! These are just a few examples. You can do it alone, with friends, family, or organize a group!

        We would really appreciate it, if you send us your experiences via pictures, video, or in written form. We will be posting these pictures and experiences on his official website: travisalexander.org (Still under construction, but it’s there.)

        You can email pictures, videos via YouTube link and experiences to servicejuly28@gmail.com.

        Also, if anyone can think of a really great name we can call this day, besides Travis Alexander Legacy Day of Service (a little long), we are open to your ideas! We would love to take credit for this awesome idea, but it wasn’t ours. A woman suggested it to me (Chris Hughes) on Twitter (If you see this, please send us your
        name- we would love to give you credit:).

        We are so excited to see your pictures and videos and to read about your experiences and thank you in advance for your participation and for making the world a better place as we honor Travis on his birthday!

        With love and gratitude,

        Chris Hughes
