On Monday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew conducted an exclusive interview with Travis Alexander's best friend Chris Hughes.
At one point, Hughes talked about the time he and his wife had Travis come up to their room to discuss Jodi Arias’ behavior.
“Jodi was there, but she was downstairs in a different bedroom and sleeping,” he explained. “So we're talking for a couple hours and all of the sudden, my wife -- she's got a sixth sense about things – [whispered] ‘Oh, my gosh – [Jodi is] out there. She's listening.’ [And then] there's a knock at the door and it's Jodi [asking if everything is OK].
When Arias had left, Hughes’ wife had the same sense that Arias was outside the door once again. This time, Alexander jumped off the bed, jerked the door open and there stood Arias.
“We were so freaked out,” Hughes said.. “We laid there in bed, my wife and I, wondering, ‘Are our children safe?'"
In court, Arias claims that she killed her ex-boyfriend Alexander in self-defense in June of 2008 at his Mesa, Arizona home -- even though she had initially given authorities different stories about the circumstances surrounding his death.
Closing arguments will begin in her trial on Thursday, May 2, meaning the jury should get the case by the end of next week.
Arias faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.
