Dr. Drew On Call

Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Anthony and Arias: Common characteristics?

NEED TO KNOW
  • Travis Alexander was found dead in his bathroom, throat slashed, shot and stabbed at least 29 times
  • Jury has been sworn in; opening statements are underway

Travis Alexander’s ex-girlfriend Jodi Arias is facing the death penalty for allegedly killing him in his Mesa, Arizona, home

Police say Alexander’s body had at least 29 stab wounds, his throat was slit from ear to ear, and he’d been shot in the face.

Her attorneys argue she killed him in self-defense, even though Arias has given authorities several stories about how her ex-boyfriend was murdered.

There's no question that this trial will be watched closely. Some are even noting the similarities between Jodi Arias and Casey Anthony.

“This [again] is something that grabs the attention and certainly grabs the imagination of the viewing public -- but in terms of the outcome, I don't think it's going to be the same [as Casey’s trial], famed attorney Marcia Clark told HLN's Dr. Drew Wednesday night.

Hear all the interesting comparisons in the video player above.
