62 seconds to kill: Could Arias have done it?

NEED TO KNOW
  • HLN is covering the Jodi Arias trial live every step of the way
  • Jodi Arias is accused of killing Travis Alexander, but says she did it in self-defense

HLN has been bringing you every detail of the Jodi Arias trial for 11 weeks. Arias is on trial for the 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander -- a killing she says was pure self-defense but prosecutors call premeditated, cold-blooded murder. Travis was stabbed 29 times.

This week, Arias finished her daunting 18-day testimony by answering a long list of questions from jurors. Prosecutor Juan Martinez questioned Arias' breakdown of the killing--countering there is no way it only took 62 seconds to kill him. Martinez argued the severity of Alexander's wounds-- he was shot, stabbed multiple times and his throat was slit from ear to ear-- are proof that Arias' actions were especially cruel. If convicted, she faces the death penalty.

Natasha sat down with HLN's Vinnie Politan and criminal defense attorney Joey Jackson to break down the latest on the trial.
