Accused murderer Jodi Arias made a stunning accusation during her murder trial Tuesday, alleging that victim Travis Alexander was planning to have an affair with a married woman, Shannon Petersen. HLN’s Nancy Grace
talked with Petersen, a married California mother, on Tuesday night to get the truth behind Arias’ explosive testimony.
“I feel like everybody knows everything that comes out of her mouth is a lie,” Petersen told Grace about Arias’ accusation. Petersen had been watching the trial live yesterday and said it was a shock to hear her name in open court. According to Petersen, she met Alexander at a Mormon church, and the two began a friendship but never had any romantic involvement.
