On the fourth day of cross-examination, prosecutor Juan Martinez continued to grill Jodi Arias about the lies she told after Travis Alexander's death in his Mesa, Arizona home.
The jury was shown text messages and heard a voice recording meant to disprove the defense’s claim that Arias wasn’t always a willing to comply in sexual episodes with Alexander.
Arias though, who claims self-defense in the brutal slaying, said during direct examination last week that she can’t remember much about the day Alexander died, including the moments where she stabbed him 29 times.
However, on Wednesday night, famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos took issue with the amount of time Arias has been on the stand.
“I just don't think that the longer you keep her up there, the better it is for the prosecution,” he told HLN’s Dr. Drew. “My feeling is that you humanize her.”
He added, “If she connects with just one juror, at some visceral level, so that they don't want to kill her, the defense has done their job and the prosecution has helped them do it.”
