After hearing weeks of testimony from Jodi Arias about the killing of Travis Alexander, we wanted to know what the evidence showed.

So we asked for the opinion of Joseph Scott Morgan, a professor of forensics and a former senior investigator for the medical examiner of Fulton County in Atlanta. He's also the author of "Blood Beneath My Feet: The Journey of a Southern Death Investigator." You can follow his updates on Facebook.

Morgan told us one of the most telling parts of the autopsy was the stab wounds on Alexander's back. We also asked him about one of the most important elements in this case: Was Alexander alive when Arias pulled the trigger?
