@ Neoptolemos: "This is interesting because?"
I can understand how some people might not find the Jodi Arias story interesting. Personally, I find it to be one of the most interesting murder cases in U.S. history for the following reasons:
1. Jodi Arias wrote over 600 pages of journal during the time she dated Travis Alexander and then planned, executed, and denied her involvement in his murder. Those journal entries have been released and give insight into the mind of someone who becomes dangerously obsessed.
2. Arias is very intelligent. Intelligent criminals tend to be a lot more interesting than non-intelligent ones.
3. Arias was also a photographer and, incredibly, took her own photographic evidence in the minutes leading up to the murder of Alexander. After killing him, she deleted the photos--but the photos were recovered off the card.
Several other reasons, but I'm hoping you get the gist.

"wait she killed an abusive boyfriend in self defense...?---and she is guilty how?"
no... she claimed in court (after several other lies like 'i hadn`t even seen him in months`) that he was an abusive boyfriend and she`d killed him in self-defence....but all the evidence pointed to the fact it was premeditated murder.
her defence was that unbelievable she may as well have claimed `ex boyfriend? what ex boyfriend? I didn`t even know him... I`ve never had a boyfriend, i`m a fish.`

so I was working out in my apartment building "gym" (a little room with 2 treadmills in it) and this woman was on trial on the TV. The TV was all fuzzy and the subtitles weren't working right, so I had no idea what was going on. And to be honest, I still don`t. She killed some dude and kept changing her story. So what, that happens all the time.
