Prosecution has completed its summary of the evidence against Jodi Arias

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Good morning:

The prosecution has completed its presentation of a summary of the evidence against Jodi Arias who was previously convicted by a jury of the premeditated murder of Travis Alexander, her former boyfriend, in a cruel, heinous, or depraved manner.

Arias is back in court for a new penalty phase hearing because that jury was unable to unanimously agree that she should be sentenced to death. The prosecution was unwilling to settle for a life-without-parole sentence, even though four jurors voted for it. Instead, they decided to try and convince another jury to sentence her to death.

Court is in recess today. Tomorrow, the defense will begin to present its mitigation case.

There is no television or livestream coverage of the retrial.

For particulars on the lurid details of this case, go here.

Frankly, I think this retrial is an aggravated waste of time and money. Arias will not be a danger to anyone in prison. Executing her is ridiculous.

DISCLOSURE: I am opposed to the death penalty in all cases, regardless of the circumstances.

    Life without possibility of parole is enough. Premeditated murder, especially by the state, is unacceptable, it would put the state in same moral place as the Arias. Leader of the murderous cabal is the prosecutor.

      seems like a mad rattle snake who cant dial back the venom one notch

      • Years ago, my nephew and his girlfriend were murdered (unsolved in Indiana). There wasn’t the internet then like it is now. I cannot imagine the mindset of a person who would do such a thing as post autopsy photos. Only a sociopath, but even then, at least a sociopath is capable of giving the appearance of being a human being on occasion, and may consider it best, in order to appear human, not to post autopsy photos of a dead teenager on the internet. It is so vile it defies words.

    State-sanctioned vengeance is just that, vengeance. Not to mention that Arias has some personality disorder or another. Locking her up is sufficient. Arizona would rather spend money on stuff like this than taking care of the homeless or hungry children. I’m also disturbed by the family of the victim not being happy with a life verdict – they’d best find peace in that.

    Blood lust must be satisfied. That’s why we have all of these stupid wars.
