On Tuesday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew interviewed Hollie and Jacob Mefford who provided the show with video of Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander that has never been shown to the public until now.
Setting up the video, Jacob explained that friends were hanging out after a convention in Oklahoma City in 2006. During the gathering, Jacob’s wife felt compelled to videotape a story Travis had told before about a near-death experience at a robbery.
During the recording, Arias can be seen with her head resting on Alexander’s lap.
In part, Alexander is heard saying, “I got this gun against my head -- and all he needs to do is squeeze, you know. So, I'm like, this woman is going to get killed. And I'm like looking at her with all the despair I can muster up in my retina.”
Hear Dr. Drew and his special guests, including lie detection expert Janine Driver, comment on what they believe they’re seeing in the video regarding the demeanor of Jodi Arias.
Arias claims that she killed Alexander in self-defense in June of 2008, even though she had given authorities other stories about the circumstances of his death. She faces the death penalty if convicted in her trial.
