March 25, at 8: Familiar with the trail and the surrounding area. Just all seems off… Kristina says: I think if they compare truck drivers who deliver in Delphi as well as Iowa where the similar murder of the cousins they may find a match i would hope this has already been done prior in the investigation Raina Sanford says:
A new year and it begins with a murder trial! The trial has indeed captivated the public with the elements of an Oscar-nominated blockbuster film-love, lies, and murder. And like most publicized murder trials, the alleged killer has already been handed a guilty verdict from the public opinion of her peers.
But, unlike most publicized murder trials, the killer has already admitted culpability for the crime. Thus, the killing of Travis Alexander is not about proving who did it, but rather proving whether or not Jodi Ann Arias deserves the death penalty as her punishment. As a public defender and contrary to popular belief, I believe that the testimony of the Medical Examiner spared Miss Arias from the death penalty and may have even set the stage for the premeditation murder charges to be dismissed.
Also, I find it perplexing that the State went so far as to indict her for burglary. If that is the standards of an Arizona burglary then chain me to the wall! And please do not even think for one second that the burglary charges are for supposedly stealing the. The State of Arizona would not charge her for a crime which was committed in California; Yreka is well outside the jurisdiction of Arizona.
Generally speaking, it seems that the consensus among the public is that the sequence of weapon use is irrelevant. Oh, but I beg to differ!

See testimony excerpt below on sequencing: Because the prosecution has argued that Miss Arias stole a. Proof of actual reflection is not required, but an act is not done with premeditation if it is the instant effect of a sudden quarrel or heat of passion.
The prosecution has rested the premeditation aspect of the charges purely on circumstantial evidence.
But, the question still remains: Did Miss Arias steal the. Juan Martinez has only implied, but not proven she did in fact steal the handgun.
Therefore, we have the existence of reasonable doubt. If I were her attorney, I would recall Dr. Then I would recall the police officer who responded to the robbery of the Yreka residence and have him testify that no knives were reported stolen.
It is now conceivable that Travis Alexander remained a threat to her even after being shot in the face with a very weak caliber handgun. On the other hand, I would have a very difficult time believing he was still at large after Miss Arias supposedly slashed his throat. Shooting him in the face after slashing his throat was really just adding insult to injury… no other way of putting it.Forensic science is the application of science to criminal and civil laws, mainly—on the criminal side—during criminal investigation, as governed by the legal standards of admissible evidence and criminal procedure..
