Normal Who's Who In The Jodi Arias Murder Trial Of Travis Alexander

Post by NiteSpinR on Wed Jan 30, 2013 4:45 am


Travis Alexander, a 30-year-old motivational speaker and legal-insurance salesman, met Jodi Arias at a conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, in September 2006. Alexander and Arias began dating in February 2007, but broke up nearly four months later. Although they were no longer dating, the couple maintained a physical relationship. In April 2008, Alexander made a blog entry stating: "This Year will be the Best year of my life. This is the year that will eclipse all others. I will earn more, learn more, travel more, serve more, love more, give more and be more than all the other years of my life combined." Alexander was found dead in his apartment on June 9, 2008. Advanced decomposition suggested that he had been dead for several days. Large amounts of blood were discovered throughout the master bathroom, including on the floors, walls and sink area. It was ultimately discovered that Alexander had been shot in the right brow with a .25-caliber gun -- the bullet was found lodged in his left cheek -- and that he had been stabbed 27 times. Someone had also cut his throat from ear to ear. Investigators found several vital clues inside Alexander's bedroom and bathroom. A spent .25-caliber shell casing was located on the floor near the sink, a hair and a small latent print in blood were found near the entrance of the bathroom hall. Also, a digital camera was found in the washing machine in the downstairs laundry room. The camera appeared as though it had been run through the wash cycle. When questioned by police, Alexander's friends and family members indicated that Arias should be questioned. While waiting for the lab test results to come back, investigators were notified that several shocking images, some of which had been deleted, were recovered from the memory card of the camera found in Alexander's washing machine. The deleted pictures were of Alexander, naked in the shower, just before his death. He appeared to be posing in some of the photographs; however, other photos, which were dark and grainy, "were of a subject on the floor of the bathroom bleeding profusely," police said. Six other photos, time-stamped that same day, allegedly showed Jodi Arias on Alexander's bed. According to police, "all were nude pictures," and in some she was in "provocative sexual poses." On June 26, 2008, investigators were notified that hair and a bloody print found inside Alexander's home belonged to Arias. DNA typing results also indicated that the bloody print was a mixture of Arias' and Alexander's DNA.



Defendant Jodi Ann Arias, 32-year-old from Yreka, Calif.
The 32-year-old mutilated her Mormon motivational speaker ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander back in 2008. Prosecutors say Arias plotted his demise and they're seeking the death penalty.

Arias admits killing Alexander but says he was an abusive pedophile who attacked her first. (The jury hasn't seen any evidence to back up either of those two allegations).

During her seemingly endless testimony, Arias has revealed raunchy details about her sex life with Alexander. The woman herself is something of an enigma, though some details about her life and psyche are emerging.
An 'Almost Ideal' Childhood

She was born in Salinas, Calif. and went to Yreka Union High School, where she was a "good girl" who didn't seem the slight bit off, her close high school friend Tina Ross told HLN TV.

She grew up with both of her parents, four siblings, and grandparents who lived nearby. She told the TV show "48 Hours" that her childhood was "almost ideal," ABC reported.

Arias, an aspiring photographer, dropped out of high school in the 11th grade, though.

Aimless In Her 20s
During her 20s, she worked a series of dead-end jobs and cycled through relationships with cheating boyfriends, she told jurors in the Arizona courtroom where she's being tried, according to the AP.

She eventually got a job with a company now known as LegalShield, which pays its "work from home" sales force on commission.

It was through this work that she met the man she'd kill. They got together at a 2006 conference in Las Vegas for Prepaid Legal Services, as it was then known.

A Complicated Relationship

At the time, Arias was living in Palm Desert, Calif., and Alexander was in Mesa, Ariz., but the two struck up a long-distance relationship. They exchanged 82,000 emails, according to court records cited by The Huffington Post.

After just two months of dating, Arias converted to the Mormon faith, according to ABC. She seemed to focus her entire life around Alexander. Alexander's friend Dave Hall told HLN TV that she never spoke about her past and didn't seem to have any friends.

Alexander told his friends that Arias hacked into his Facebook account and slashed his tires after they broke up, according to multiple news sources.

"She (Arias) was, like, totally obsessed with Travis," Alexander's friend Julie Christopher told CBS 5.

"A Walking Embodiment Of Sociopathy"
Crime expert Scott Bonn told HuffPost's Dave Lohr that Arias is a textbook sociopath.

Sociopaths have something "severely wrong" with their consciences, according to "Psychology Today," and Arias has remained mostly composed during her televised murder trial.

"She is really a walking embodiment of sociopathy in many ways," Bonn told HuffPost. "The ironic thing about that, I believe, is that is part of the intrigue. There's a disconnect: How can this pretty young woman be responsible for this reprehensible, incomprehensible act?"

Arias' belief that she can convince a jury that she stabbed Alexander nearly 30 times to defend herself also reflects a classic sociopathic trait: narcissism.

Arias initially told investigators she knew nothing about Alexander's murder, and then blamed it on masked intruders before finally claiming self-defense.

"This self-defense position that she is taking is the third in a series of realities that she's created, none of which is consistent with the other," Bonn told HuffPost. "It's consistent with a sociopath personality. She's so narcissistic and enamored with herself that she thinks she can make it believable."



Juan Martinez Maricopa County Prosecutor is considered one of Arizona’s top Death-Penalty Prosecutors. According to the Phoenix New Times, Martinez is despised by many Defense attorneys, “because he relentlessly plays hardball on the job.” A graduate of at Arizona State University, Martinez was licensed to practice Law in 1984 and joined the Maricopa County Attorney's Office in 1988. Martinez, according to the Times, rarely enters into plea bargains and is known to be meticulous in preparation and presentation.

Esteban Flores of the Mesa Police Department was the Lead Detective in Travis Alexander's homicide. Flores testified in court that he was at Alexander's house on June 9, 2008, after the victim’s body was discovered by friends. Flores also testified about the crime scene and a phone interview he conducted with Jodi Arias the following day. Prosecution Witness



Heather Conner Fingerprint Examiner with Mesa Police, testified about the crime scene and evidence recovered by Crime Scene Investigators. Prosecution Witness

ADDED BY WRAP: Wed Apr 24, 2013 2:05 pm
Melendez said he examined Alexander's laptop hard drive and did not find any images of women's breasts or images of children on his computer. He also did not find any pornographic websites in Alexander's internet browser history. Melendez testified earlier in the trial as well. Mesa police officer Michael Melendez last testified on Jan. 14, 2013 about the deleted photos he recovered from the digital camera found in the washer. One of the two juror questions was if all photo's had been deleted from Travis' camera. Melendez indicated that NOT all photos had..that there were approximately '90 or more' still on the camera but all crimescene and pics of Arias and Alexander nude HAD been deleted.




Jodi Legg Forensic Scientist with the City of Mesa Crime Lab. Prosecution Witness



Lisa Perry Forensic Scientist with the City of Mesa Crime Lab who examined blood evidence in the case. Prosecution Witness

Dr. Kevin Horn Maricopa County Medical Examiner office, described on day three of the trial how Travis Alexander was stabbed 27 times, shot in the right brow with a .25-caliber gun, and nearly decapitated when his throat, voice box and arteries were cut. Jurors were shown photos of the body found in his Mesa home June 9, 2008, several days after he was killed, decomposing and starting to mummify. According to Horn, Alexander's stab wounds were very deep and inflicted with major force. Horn testified it was impossible to determine if Alexander was dead before he was shot due to the amount of decomposition. The cause of death was excessive blood loss from the victim's body and Alexander had multiple self-defense wounds to his palms and fingers. A key element of the Prosecution's case. Prosecution Witness



Jeff Strohn an employee of Sprint Nextel, briefly discussed phone calls made from Jodi Arias' cell phone after Travis Alexander's murder. Strohn also testified in the Murray Murder Trial of Michael Jackson. Prosecution Witness



Joey Citizen a Verizon wireless Records Custodian, went over Travis Alexander's phone records from May and June 2008. Prosecution Witness

Kevin Friedman California Police Officer with the Yreka Police Department. He investigated the reported theft of a .25 caliber gun by Jodi Arias' grandparents days before Travis Alexander's murder. Prosecution Witness



Ryan Burns was once a budding love interest of Jodi Arias. He testified during day four of her trial that Arias visited him in Utah on June 5, 2008 and had a heated make-out session with her (just 24 hours after she allegedly stabbed and shot Travis Alexander to death.) Burns stated that Arias had dyed her hair from blonde to brunette and had cuts on her hands when she visited him. "She had two small bandages on a couple of her fingers,” Burns, testified. Arias had explained the injuries by saying she worked at Margaritaville and had broken a glass and cut her finger. Prosecution Witness



Marie Hall testified she had dated Travis Alexander and was planning to accompany him on a trip to Cancun. She said she felt very safe with him and he never showed his temper. Before the trip her calls to him went unanswered and she went to his house with some of Travis' friends, gained entrance and stayed back while others entered his room and discovered his body in the shower. She called 911 and calmly explained to the operator that Travis was dead and gave Jodi's name as an ex-girl friend who had been stalking him. Prosecution Witness



Leslie Udy A resident of Utah, Udy testified she met Arias in September 2006 at a work-related conference in Nevada. Udy said Arias had expressed concerns that Alexander was cheating on her. When she met with Arias in Utah after Alexander's murder, Udy said she observed cuts on Arias' hand, which the defendant attributed to a broken glass. Udy said Arias never told her she had killed Alexander. During cross-examination by public defender Kirk Nurmi, Udy testified that Arias was a soft-spoken, gentle person and that she had trouble believing Arias could kill Alexander. In an effort to demonstrate to the jury that Udy did not know Arias as well as she might think, Prosecutor Martinez showed her photos of a nude Arias posing in sexually explicit positions and asked her if she knew about that side of Arias. Udy replied, "No." Martinez then showed Udy a photo showing Alexander in a pool of blood near Arias' leg. He asked Udy if she was familiar with the pants Arias was allegedly wearing in the photo. Udy replied, "No." Martinez then announced that the state was resting its case. Prosecution Witness



Gus Searcy has been involved in Pre-Paid Legal/ Legal Shield, the company where both Travis and Jodi were employed. During cross examination by Prosecutor Martinez it became heated when Martinez implied Legal Shield was a pyramid type business,(where others made money for those in higher positions in the company.) The two continued to be confrontational throughout the questioning. Searcy testified that Jodi Arias was staying with him in his motor home and was present when she received a phone call from Travis that lasted 30 minutes which left her visibly shaking and upset. Defense Witness



Chris Hughes a friend of Alexander and Arias, and a co-worker of Gus called to the stand by the Prosecution as a surprise witness in response to some of Gus Searcy’s testimony. During his testimony, Hughes denied talking to or working with the Prosecution, as Searcy stated he had done. Hughes referred to Defense attorney Nurmi as a snake because he had lied to Hughes’ wife Sky in the past. He also made reference to letters or text messages from Alexander to Arias, which claimed Alexander was a child molester. Those letter were denounced as forgeries concocted by Arias and precluded from evidence.



(Found the picture below on several other sites and believe this to be the same man. I cropped out the child in the picture before posting it here.)

Darryl Brewer 52-year-old divorcee with a 14-year-old son testified he met Arias in the fall of 2001 and they fell in love. Brewer said they were together for about four years. During cross examination by Prosecutor Martinez, he testified that he and Arias engaged in anal sex and she had taken photographs of him sleeping and in the shower. Defense Witness




Lisa Andrews-Daidone Had an 8 month on again off again relationship with Travis (10 years her senior) when she was 19. They met in Church. Before they began dating she has seen Arias at Travis' home on a few occasions. Noticing that Arias attempted to hold his hand and would hang and hug all over him while he was engaged in conversations with other people and that Travis seemed un-wanting of the advances. She testified that he was not abusive or sexually aggressive with her during the extent of their relationship and that it was she who had initiated the first kiss between them. The first time they broke up was because she found out that he was still seeing Jodi. Lisa considered Travis' interaction with Arias as cheating. Within a month or so Travis and Lisa were back together. Lisa explains to the court that as a naive 19 year old she was bothered by the fact that Travis got an erection while kissing her. Within 24 hours she fired off an e-mail to him concerning sex. Later wishing she hadn't been so harsh in her thinking and judgment of the event. The second time they separated was because Travis wanted to marry her and she felt she was too young to enter into that commitment. At some point Lisa learned that Travis had continuing contact with Arias and another past girlfriend Deanna Reid and that while they were dating Arias had accompanied Travis on over night trips. During the end of cross examination Prosecutor Martinez showed Lisa a photograph of Travis' dead body and ask if she thought Travis' deserved to die like that because of cheating. The Defense strongly objected. After the sidebar Lisa was asked by Martinez if Travis was a virgin she replied that she assumed he was and didn't find out until after he was murdered/killed that he was not.


Desiree Freeman Friend of Travis Alexander. She testified how Travis and Jodi interacted with each other before and after their break up. Her statement included that she had heard Travis address Arias in "An Over The Top" manner only once. She described Travis joking around and being proud about being a Virgin.

Daniel Freeman Friend of Travis Alexander and brother of Desiree Freeman. Testified about the interaction between Travis and Jodi. Told the court that the two seemed to be romantically involved while in a small gathering of people, but in public acted differently. Before leaving on a trip with Travis, Arias and his sister Desiree, Daniel witnessed an argument where Travis was speaking loudly and Jodi was crying.



Lonnie Dworkin Computer Forensic Examiner, with a long list of experience and education in his area of expertize. Dworkin testified to the procedures he conducted to recover items from a damaged hard drive belonging to Arias and reviewed what he found on Travis' internet history. During the Defense questioning he identified photographs allegedly of Alexander's genitals sent to Arias via a picture message from his phone to hers. During cross examination by the Martinez he conceded he could not identify who's genitals were in the photos, and testified there was no pornography found on Alexander's laptop computer.


Richard M. Samuels, Ph.D., FACCS, ABPP ~ Psychologist for the Defense.
Practicing Clinical and Forensic Psychologist with over thirty years of experience. With an extensive background in evaluation, analysis, report writing and testimony, Dr. Samuels specializes in Sexually Violent Perpetrator evaluations, Psychosexual Risk Assessments, Sexual Harassment and Gender Discrimination Matters for Defendants and Emotional Trauma from Medical Malpractice for Defendants and Plaintiffs. Working closely with public defenders and private attorneys, he will determine the facts of the case and any special circumstances and mitigating factors involving the trial process. An extensive evaluation of the respondent, in depth case analysis and research contributes to a succinct report which often will result in a more favorable outcome for your client. His clear and strong testimony in support of the report can help to educate juries and judges.
Psychologist Richard Samuels was sanctioned by the New Jersey State Board of Psychological Examiners in 2000 after two people, identified only by their initials in the document, complained he made a child custody recommendation without examining the mother and "bartered services with [an individual in the case] so that [they] received psychotherapeutic services from respondent in exchange for respondent receiving dental services" from them, the document says.

The state board determined Samuels "entered into a relationship ... which a reasonable psychologist in similar circumstances would expect to limit objectivity, impair professional judgment or increase risk of exploitation," violating state administrative code, according to the consent order. The board fined Samuels $2,500 and ordered training for "ethics and boundary issues." Samuels also was directed to "cease crossing boundaries with clients and entering into relationships which may create conflicts of interest with his clients."

Samuels testified during Arias' murder trial in Arizona on Thursday, March 14, 2013 that she had an acute stress disorder during the June 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, 30. The psychologist said the disorder changed to post-traumatic stress disorder after the slaying, preventing her from accurately remembering her actions. Arias, now 32, is charged with first-degree murder and faces the death penalty if convicted.

Arias testified that her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander physically abused her, and that he was a sexual deviant who was aroused by children. Alexander's physical and sexual abuse allegedly pushed Arias to the point that she had to kill him in self-defense.

LaViolette’s testimony may support Arias’ claim that she was in an abusive relationship. She may also have an explanation for what motivated Arias to lie about killing Alexander.

Normal 12 jurors, 5 alternates: Meet the Jodi Arias jury

Post by Wrapitup on Sat Mar 16, 2013 11:06 am

By Alice Feigel
updated 1:04 PM EDT, Fri March 15, 2013

Eighteen Arizona citizens have spent more than two months listening to witnesses, looking at evidence and asking Jodi Arias questions about the slaying of Travis Alexander. And it's not over yet.

But, only 12 of them will ultimately decide on Arias' fate.

After closing arguments, six of the jurors will find out they are alternate jurors. They will listen to jury instructions and then watch the 12 official jurors head to the jury room to begin deliberations.

The alternate jurors will not be released from service at this time. During deliberations, if any one of the 12 jurors are released for any reason, an alternate juror would be called back and deliberations would begin again.

The Arias jury has been closely watched by the gallery and Arias herself. During Arias' testimony, she often answered questions while looking directly at the jury.

Here is what our HLN and In Session producers have noticed about the jury. The following descriptions are intended to give a snapshot of each juror's reaction to Arias' testimony:

Juror No. 1
She is a white female in her 60s and sits closest to the witness stand. She doesn't look at Arias often during her testimony. People in the gallery observed her yawning once during an emotional part of Arias' testimony.

Juror No. 2
He is a white male in his 50s. He takes few notes and usually has his head cupped in his hands as he listens to testimony.

Juror No. 3
She is a white female in her 40s. She takes a lot of notes and often watches prosecutor Juan Martinez as he moves around the courtroom. She has been seen submitting questions.

Juror No. 4
He is a white male in his 60s, and he takes few notes.

Juror No. 6
She is a white female in her 60s and is also seen taking many notes.

Juror No. 7
He is a white male in his 30s, and he is married. He takes notes and often bites his nails.

Juror No. 8
He is a white male in his 50s and is married. He also takes notes and has been observed submitting questions.

Juror No. 9
He is a white male in his 60s. He wears denim on most days and sits at the end of the jury box. He sits close to the first row of the gallery where Alexander's family sits.

Juror No. 10
He is a white male in his 70s and is married. He has a tattoo on his right arm. He rarely is seen taking notes. He sits the furthest away from the witness.

Juror No. 12
She is a white female in her 40s and also takes lots of notes. She swiveled her chair toward Arias during her testimony.

Juror No. 13
He is a white male in his late 60s to early 70s. He wears an audio-enhancing headset provided by the court. He does takes notes.

Juror No. 14
He is a white male in his early 60s who often swivels in his chair. He does not appear to be taking notes.

Juror No. 15
He is a white male in his late 20s or early 30s. He appears to be the youngest member of the jury and takes very few notes. He smiled when Martinez asked Arias if she could predict the future.

Juror No. 16
He is a white male in his 40s.

Juror No. 17
She is a married, white female in her 30s. She takes a lot of notes. She does not look at Arias during testimony. She tends to look straight ahead or down at her notes.

Juror No. 18
She is a white female in her 40s. She is an occasional note taker and she often looks at the gallery during sidebars.

We don't know what he looks like or where he lives. We just know that he and Jodi both agree that Matt would lie for Jodi.

Normal Juror No. 5 ~ Meliha Omanovic

Post by Wrapitup on Sun Apr 07, 2013 7:42 pm

Juror No. 5

She is a married, white female in her 30s. She sits on the edge of her seat and is the most visible juror from the gallery because she has a “unique hair style.”
Who is Juror Five, the woman with the multihued hair who was expelled from the Jodi Arias jury on Tuesday?

Her name is Meliha Omanovic,, she's 38 years old, she's a Bosnian immigrant, and she lives in North Phoenix.

And she was surprised at the attention she garnered from the media when she showed up for court on Thursday afternoon.

"I was encouraged to come," she told The Arizona Republic, though she wouldn't say by whom. Her mother-in-law, Camilla Omanovic, however, said that Meliha had received three calls from the court the day before.

She would not say why she was dismissed from the jury, though she says she will when the trial ends. Arias, 32, is on trial in the June 2008 murder of her secret lover, Travis Alexander, 30, who was found dead in the shower of his Mesa home with nearly 30 stab wounds, a gunshot to the head and a slit throat.

"I wanted to be part of the trial," Omanovic said. "For the past four months it was part of my life. I get attached to things and I take it very seriously."

Omanovic came to Phoenix 20 years ago when she was 18. Her family was escaping civil war in what was then Yugoslavia. She met her husband here and married and had a daughter. Her husband is a truck driver, and Omanovic used to drive with him, but now she stays home.

She realized that the media was present at the trial every day, but did not know how widely the trial was being watched.

"Even if it came up on the news, I switched the channel," she said.

And the media knew they were not allowed to speak to her, so she said she was shocked when she was mobbed by the press after Thursday's hearings.

"Yesterday was the first day when people were trying to get to me," she said. "I'm just a regular person.

Omanovic said she was shocked as well by the content of the trial, the sex, the gore.

"If you're human you have to be," she said.

"It is a big trial, and I think that Travis' family deserves justice. Jodi deserves justice. No matter what it is, it needs to come to an end."

"I really want to see this trial over and justice served -- whichever way it goes."

Normal Re: Who's Who In The Jodi Arias Murder Trial Of Travis Alexander

Post by NiteSpinR on Mon Apr 08, 2013 1:54 pm

Dr. Janeen DeMarte,PhD

Welcome to Sentience Psychological Services. You might be wondering what the word "sentience" means. Sentience is the ability to feel, perceive, and have self-awareness through emotional experiences. I believe that having the full capacity to feel and perceive both the rewarding and challenging sensations of life in a balanced way supports psychological health. The goal of my practice is to provide conscientious psychological services for people presenting with emotional or behavioral challenges that may be an obstacle in their life. I can provide comprehensive services including therapy, evaluation, consultation, teaching/ lecture, and expert testimony.

Mental and emotional wellbeing are fundamental components to your health. Just as seeking medical attention for health concerns supports physical health, using therapy to address mental/emotional challenges is a proactive means of nurturing a healthy mind. I offer psychological therapy to individuals/families, utilizing a variety of approaches.

In addition to therapy, I offer evaluative services. A psychological evaluation can identify a number of emotional, behavioral, or developmental impairments and also highlight psychological and cognitive strengths. In an evaulation, a number of factors are assessed to identify the root source of these challenges.

Normal Juror No. 11 ~ As of this date, ill & has been excused from the rest of the trial.

Post by Wrapitup on Fri Apr 12, 2013 3:39 pm

He is a Hispanic male in his late 20s to early 30s. He dresses casually and sometimes slouches so far down in his chair that he is hardly visible to the gallery. He does not appear to be taking notes.

The jury heard NONE of this.

Mefford testified to the video of Jodi's head in Travis' lap. He stated he never saw them argue.

Normal Chelsey Young ~ Young works with Tesoro gas stations in their IT department.

Post by Wrapitup on Wed Apr 24, 2013 2:47 pm



Martinez had Young walk the jury through what Arias' gas receipts meant from her road trip on June 6, 2008, two days after she killed Alexander. Young says there were three transactions for gas at a Salt Lake City Tesoro.

Martinez: "In this case, how many transactions for gas was there?"

Young: "Three."

Martinez: "And there was initially Exhibit 237.016, how many gallons of gas were purchased?"

Young: "Ten gallons, 10.672 gallons."

Martinez: "And then the next one was five gallons correct?"

Young: "Correct."

Martinez: "Or approximately. And the last one 237.017 was how many gallons?"

Young: 9.583.

Normal Deanna Reid - Travis Alexander's Ex-Girlfriend. They Remained Friends and Deanna Has Travis' Dog, Napolean.

Post by Wrapitup on Wed Apr 24, 2013 3:00 pm



Reid testified said relationship soured while she is on her mission in Costa Rica, her absence led to the break up, Alexander wanted to see other people. She returned from her mission in November 2001, and after a few weeks in 2002, they reconciled. She testified that during their relationship Alexander never called her names or abused her physically. Reid said she dated Alexander exclusively from 2002 to 2004, and he was never verbally or physically abusive to her. Reid said she never saw Alexander with pictures of little boys or pictures of little boys on his computer. Reid said people would tease Alexander about him being a virgin, and he usually left the impression with other people that he was a virgin. However, she never heard him specifically tell someone he was a virgin. Reid broke up with Alexander, because she wanted to be in a relationship with someone who wanted to get married. Alexander began to cry when she broke the news to him, and they decided to remain friends. Reid said he did not yell or become physically abusive with her. She also said Alexander never raised her voice at her the entire time she knew him. Alexander remained friends with Reid after they broke up. She now owns his dog Napoleon.
