It's April 24, 2013, day 52 in the first-degree murder trial of Jodi Arias. Arias is accused of shooting 30-year-old Travis Alexander in the head and stabbing him 27 times on June 4, 2008, resulting in his death. Arias and Alexander dated in the early part of 2007, but continued to have sex together, even though they had officially broke up and were seeing other people. Photo evidence showed that
The medical examiner testified that there is no way to determine whether Alexander was stabbed or shot first. This was due to the level of decomposition that had set in by the time friends discovered Alexander's body on June 9, 2008. An autopsy revealed that Alexander had defensive stab wounds on his hands, so it is clear he put up a fight against a knife. Arias claims she accidentally shot Alexander while defending herself in an argument she described as domestic violence. The prosecution contends that Arias stabbed Alexander then shot him after he was dead.
