Jodi Arias Finally Describes the Day She Killed Boyfriend Travis Alexander (VIDEO)

That's Criminal 4

Jodi Arias

If you've been following the Jodi Arias trial, today was ground zero of testimony -- the day that Jodi described the day she killed her lover, senior Mormon Travis Alexander. Jodi has admitted that she shot her lover and also stabbed him 27 times and slit his throat -- but she's claimed all along it was in self-defense. Jodi has spent much of the trial painting herself as a loved-starved naive doofus -- and Travis as a cruel sex-crazed pervert and potential pedophile. Much of the testimony does point to the fact that Travis wasn't exactly a stand-up dude -- he was sending Jodi threatening text messages in the weeks before his death -- but then why did Jodi keep dating him? Probably for the same reason many women date jerks. They keep hoping he will change. Or she thinks she doesn't deserve better. Or it feels familiar to her. You know the drill.

In today's testimony, Jodi described the day that Travis died. It started out with them having sex a couple of times. But this being Jodi and Travis, it wasn't just any old missionary-style ho-hum sex, my friends. It was, according to Jodi, violent, and involved her being tied up, having her arm twisted, and being bent over so Travis could penetrate her from behind ... if you catch my drift.

They then took sexual photos of each other and made a sex video. (I guess a simple brunch was out of the question.) But things took a turn for the worse when Jodi apparently dropped Travis's camera and he allegedly yelled at her, called her a "stupid idiot," and body slammed her into a counter.

At this point, Jodi apparently ran into a closet to hide and, remembering that Travis kept a gun in the closet, grabbed it in order to scare him. Then, somehow, "the gun went off." Yeah, she didn't deliberately point and shoot, it just "went off." Of course it did.

Travis then allegedly attacked her and called her a bunch of names. Here's where Jodi's memory gets -- well -- spotty. She says she doesn't remember stabbing him or slitting his throat. Nor does she remember taking pictures of his dead body. Isn't that conveeeenient?

She does remember driving around in the desert. And she remembers throwing the gun in the desert. Creepily, she says she "still loves" Travis. That's the kind of love no one wants.

I really wish these two had found the strength to stop torturing each other and go their own ways -- they were about as toxic as it gets.

Do you think Jodi really doesn't remember killing Travis?

I love how they make her look all plain in court. I used look like that when I left my mom's house to go out as a teenager, and five minutes down the road, it was full face makeup, jacked up hair, and the skirt hiked up to the bottom of my butt. And I was just a kid going out. This heifer is literally trying to get away with murder. I would love to see her as she regularly looked with her victim. I bet it wasn't this Sister Wife drag she has on. I really hope the whole courtroom peers through her Plain Jane routine and sees her for the psycho bitch she is.

What is a "senior Mormon"? Oh, that's right. There's no such thing. And even if there were, the title would not apply to him since he held absolutely no position of authority in the church.

It really rubs me wrong to see him described as a "devout Mormon," as he so often is. He may have been a Mormon, but I'm not sure how "devout" you could call him since he was not living the religion's most basic tenants.

In any case, it's a tragic story.


Are you fucking kidding me with that question? Didn't she remember when it was a self defense plea ? Maybe she can't remember because the Ninjas did it(remember the Ninjas?). I'm ready for them to fry the bitch. And really, who gives a rats ass if the dude was devout or not. He was murdered because he didn't want a skank as a girlfriend and that pissed her off. There are certain woman that certain men marry and those that they fuck. She was a way to get his weenie wet(aka A USE)

. Believe me there was a reason he didn't take out in public. She wasn't a good Mormon girl. @ Tuffymama I also think she can't have any makeup while she's locked up let alone bleach for the hair. I'd love to see her tarted up too.
