Jodi Arias says she killed her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in self-defense, even though she has given authorities other stories about his death.
After Alexander’s body was found in June of 2008 at his Mesa, Arizona, home, Arias told police she was not involved in his killing. She later told investigators that she witnessed two intruders break in and kill him. Eventually, Arias said she killed Alexander in self-defense.
On Monday, February 4, Arias took the stand with jaw-dropping confessions, including suicide plans and allegations of abuse at the hands of her parents.
“Dr. Drew's Jury" Monday night, Kathy Monkman and Katie Wick, offered insight as they were observers inside the Arias courtroom.
“I don't believe one word coming out of her mouth,” Wick said.
Monkman added, “I think that her affect does not match what she's saying. When she said she was nervous, she doesn't appear nervous.”
But when the women were asked if they thought there was chance that any of the jurors believed Arias, Wick quickly responded, “Yes, I do. That's what I'm fearful of … I think that she could have a chance if she continues to play this ‘woe is me, I was abused, therefore it justifies me brutally murdering my boyfriend’ -- I think it could possibly [work]."
