Stephens on December 10, Initial jury selection began on December 10, Judge Stephens ruled that the prosecution had shown no bias in the jury selection. Kirk Nurmi and Jennifer Willmott, who argued that Alexander's death was a justifiable homicide committed in self-defense.
She told him she had cut her hands on broken glass while working at a restaurant called Margaritaville. A detective testified no restaurant by that name had ever existed in the Yreka area; at the time, Arias was working at a restaurant called Casa Ramos. In addition, in the final days before his death, Alexander had called her a " sociopath " and "the worst thing that ever happened to me", and stated he was afraid of her.
Arias said that they eventually had intercourse, but less often. Afterward, Arias said "he went to kick me again, and I put my hand out. This was the third differing account of Alexander's death given by Arias,  which both prosecutors, courtroom observers, and later jurors felt severely damaged her credibility.
Rebuttal witnesses from the prosecution included several of Alexander's other girlfriends, who stated he never exhibited any problems with anger or violence. In the interview, she had said: You can mark my words on that. So I was extremely confident that no jury would convict me, because I didn't expect any of you to be here.
I think she was not a good witness," he said. He said Arias was likely suffering from acute stress at the time of the killing, sending her body into a " fight or flight " mode to defend herself, which caused her brain to stop retaining memory.
In response to a juror's question asking whether this scenario could occur even if this was a premeditated murder, as the prosecution contended, he responded: Arias to move on from the relationship Alexander has been abusive to women.
Furthermore, Arias's claimed total memory loss for long stretches of time was inconsistent with traumatic amnesia associated with PTSD which manifests as much shorter gaps in memory.
Robert Geffner, who said that DeMarte's borderline diagnosis was "not appropriate" and that all tests taken by Arias since her arrest pointed toward an anxiety disorder stemming from trauma.
He also said the tests indicated that she answered questions honestly, without lying. Horn, who testified further on the gunshot wound, and called Dr. Jill Hayes, a forensic neuro-psychologist, who disputed Geffner's testimony that the MMPI test was not geared toward diagnosing borderline personality disorder,  concluding a long day in court at 8: Webb said that according to Walmart's records, no one returned a five-gallon gas can on that date, and that Arias returned the gas can a week later rather than on June 3.
The relationship, the relationship of chaos, that ended in chaos as well. There is nothing about what happened on June 4th in that bathroom that looks planned Couldn't it also be that after everything they went through in that relationship, that she simply snapped?
Ultimately, if Miss Arias is guilty of any crime at all, it is the crime of manslaughter and nothing more. Nothing indicates that this is anything less than a slaughter. There was no way to appease this woman who just wouldn't leave him alone," he said.
On April 3, a member of the jury was dismissed for "misconduct". Out of twelve jurors, five jurors found her guilty of first-degree premeditated murderand seven jurors found her guilty of both first-degree premeditated murder and felony murder. People outside the courtroom began cheering and chanting.
Arias's attorneys, who had repeatedly asked to step down from the case, gave only brief opening statements and closing arguments, in which they said the adrenaline rushing through Alexander's body may have prevented him from feeling much pain during his death.
Prosecutor Martinez showed photos of the corpse and crime scene to the jury, then paused for two minutes of silence to illustrate how long he said it took for Alexander to die at Arias's hands. After less than three hours of consideration, the jury determined that Arias was eligible for the death penalty.This is Jodi Picoult at her best: tackling an emotional hot-button issue and putting a human face on it.
