Another attractive, young, white woman is awaiting trial for a brutal murder, one so horrific that we ask can a jury find her guilty? And when deliberating, will they honestly weigh all the evidence and look beyond the pretty smile and demure manner?
Jodi Arias is accused of shooting her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, in the face and then stabbing him 27 times before slitting his throat from ear to ear. Could she have been acting in self-defense as her attorneys are suggesting?
Like the Casey Anthony trial, this trial promises to be the next media event, covered gavel to gavel by the networks, and pundits will examine every minute detail of the testimony, and you can bet all eyes will be on Jodi Arias.
Dr. Scott Bonn, noted criminologist and author, will analyze the nuances of this case on The Dr. Laurie Roth Show Wednesday, January 2 broadcasting at 8-9 Pacific, 11-12 Eastern time.
In his last appearance with Dr. Laurie Roth, Scott Bonn discussed the violent culture of the US. Will society’s acceptance of violence allow another killer to go free as in the Anthony case?
Doc Bonn has compared the defendant, Jodi Arias, and her psychological similarities to Casey Anthony, looking beyond the headlines and into the mind of cold blooded killers. Read here.
Similar to Casey Anthony, Jodi Arias is an attractive young woman with no prior criminal record who is accused of committing an unimaginable murder—in Anthony’s case, the killing of her own daughter. Similar to Anthony, Arias faces the death penalty. And, eerily similar to Anthony, Arias exhibits sociopathic tendencies in both her demeanor and behavior. Specifically, she appears emotionless and detached when she describes her ex-boyfriend’s death. Claiming that Alexander’s death was an act of self-defense, Arias exhibits neither sadness nor remorse. In fact, her demeanor seems almost cold-blooded at times.
The Jodi Arias trial begins January 7 when prosecutors present their evidence and the defense attorneys offer that this was merely a burglary gone wrong and Arias acted in self-defense. As in all trials, the jury will decide the guilt or innocence and attempt to bring forth justice for murder victim, Travis Alexander.
For extensive background coverage on this case HLN TV writer, Carol Gantt, and other staff writers, have been examining all aspects of, not only the circumstances surrounding the crime, but the depth of the relationships of Jodi Arias, Travis Alexander, and other family members. Read here for several outstanding articles. In Session’s live coverage of the Jodi Arias trial begins January 7 on truTV from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET.
Listen LIVE Wednesday, January 2 to hear Dr. Scott Bonn give his opinions on Jodi Arias, the criminal mind, and analysis of the crime.
