Janet on Facebook wants to know: "The autopsy of Travis showed defensive wounds so that means Jodi was on the offense... so how can she claim self defense? She had no defensive wounds."

And Elizabeth sent us this question on Facebook: "Is Arizona a state where overkill (escalation) cannot be used as self defense, i.e. if someone attacks you with fists, you cannot use a knife and claim self defense, or if someone attacks you with a knife you can not claim self defense using a gun?"

Criminal defense attorney Holly Hughes answers these questions in the video above!
