Well, it’s been a long time coming and Jodi Arias had this coming, for sure! The soon-to-be-sentenced (hopefully to the needle) Arias claimed self-defense in the slaying of her ex, Travis Alexander, then commented later that, “no jury will convict me. You can mark my words on that one.”
Guess what, dummy! The jury convicted you! BAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
So here’s the basic timeline of how this went down, for those unaware:
Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander ended their relationship sometime in the end of June 2007, on or about the 29th to be exact. At that point, Jodi moved to Mesa, a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona where she stayed until April of 2008, at which time she moved back to her native California to live with family.
On May 28, 2008 there was an alleged break-in at her family’s residence in which a .25 caliber handgun was stolen. A few days before this, Jodi contacted another ex and asked him if she could borrow a gas can, which he allowed her to do. After the alleged break-in, credit card receipts show her buying gasoline in a number of different locations, the order of which lead to Arizona.
On June 4th, 2008, Travis Alexander was shot in the head in his home. After being shot, he was stabbed between 25 and 30 times in the upper torso. His throat was cut so savagely that he was nearly decapitated.
Jodi Arias denied having seen Travis Alexander since April of 2008, yet investigators found a digital camera in the washing machine which contained images of Arias and Alexander in naughty poses, which were dated June 4th, 2008. Other images from later in that day showed Alexander first in the shower, quite alive and healthy and then moments later on the floor, bleeding terribly.
So, crazy bitch says she didn’t do it. Later, she changed her story to “it was self-defense” and today the jury said “Nah, bitch…you did the caper!”
Now it’s time to pay. With any luck, she’ll get the super sauce and we can be rid of her.
