Jodi Arias on tape: I have never owned a gun

  • Jodi Arias is accused of killing her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, in Arizona
  • Arias says she killed Alexander in self-defense
Jodi Arias told police when she was being questioned about Travis Alexander's death that she didn't own a gun.

Prosecutors in the Jodi Arias trial played a recording Monday of Mesa, Arizona, Police Det. Esteban Flores confronting Arias about the whereabouts of the gun that was used to shoot Travis Alexander in the head.

Arias said she doesn’t have a gun, and has no idea what he is talking about. Flores then reads Arias her Miranda rights.

Earlier Monday, prosecutor Juan Martinez called Yreka, California, police officer Kevin Friedman to the witness stand. He testified he investigated a robbery at the house of Arias’ grandparents on May 28, 2008, just a few days before Alexander was killed.

One of the items stolen from the house was a .25 caliber gun, the same caliber of the bullet found in Alexander’s head. Investigators have never found the gun that was used to shoot Alexander.

In Session legal experts say prosecutors are likely using the stolen-gun report to help establish that Arias premeditated killing Alexander.

When testimony picks back up Wednesday afternoon, Mesa, Arizona, police investigator Michael Melendez will testify about the photos he found on Alexander’s camera that prosecutors says show the killing in progress.

Soon after Alexander’s body was found in June 2008, Arias told police she was not involved in Alexander's death. She later changed her story and told investigators that she witnessed two intruders break in and killed him. She eventually admitted to killing Alexander in self-defense.
