Could Arias prosecutor's testy approach backfire?

NEED TO KNOW

  • Prosecutor Juan Martinez criticized for being too aggressive

Prosecutor Juan Martinez has been criticized for his aggressive style during the Jodi Arias trial.

Martinez sparred with defense witness Gus Searcy.

Martinez shocked the courtroom Wednesday when he threw a picture of Travis Alexander's slit throat onto the screen during testimony from Alexander's ex-girlfriend. Arias' attorney immediately objected to the use of the picture, calling it "completely irrelevant."
