Arias Judge: Prosecutors Can Seek Death Penalty
PHOENIX — Jan 14, 2015, 7:37 PM ET

The judge in the Jodi Arias case on Wednesday denied a bid by her lawyers to stop prosecutors from seeking the death penalty.

Arias was convicted in May 2013 of murdering her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, at his suburban Phoenix home. But jurors deadlocked on whether she should be sentenced to life in prison or death. A new jury was picked to decide her sentence, and her sentencing retrial is ongoing.

Arias' attorneys had asked Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens to dismiss a notice by prosecutors that they are seeking the death penalty on several grounds.

They alleged that authorities examining Alexander's laptop destroyed thousands of files — including files from pornographic websites — that would have been beneficial in defending Arias. They said the computer files could have helped them argue that Alexander had treated their client in a sexually humiliating manner.

Arias' lawyers also asked the judge to dismiss the death penalty because three witnesses on her behalf have refused to testify in open court for fear they will be harassed.

In a ruling Wednesday, Stephens denied all of the motions to take the death penalty off the table.

"Many of those motions alleged prosecutorial misconduct. The cumulative effect of those allegations does not require dismissal of the charges or the notice of intent to seek the death penalty," Stephens wrote. "There may have been errors made, but those errors were not so egregious that they create concerns about the integrity or fundamental fairness of the trial."

Prosecutor Juan Martinez has denied authorities mishandled computer evidence.

Day 25 of Jodi Arias trial: Judge rules death penalty stands
Posted: Jan 14, 2015 5:11 PM CST  Updated: Jan 14, 2015 9:52 PM CST

PHOENIX (CBS5) -
The judge in the Jodi Arias sentencing retrial has denied a motion to take the death penalty off the table.

Arias' lawyers appeared to make a strong case when they filed a motion to take the death penalty off the table.

But late Wednesday afternoon, Judge Sherry Stephens ruled it wasn't strong enough, which means the trial will proceed.
 
The sentencing retrial was supposed to wrap up one month ago. Instead, Stephens told the jury Wednesday to expect this case to run through next month.

Things got a little heated in the courtroom as defense attorney Kirk Nurmi once again accused prosecutor Juan Martinez of misconduct.

Martinez fired back, telling Arias' attorney to quit attacking the prosecutor when "you are failing at something."

There are no witnesses scheduled for Thursday or Friday and Monday is a holiday. The trial will continue Tuesday morning.

he defense is hoping to convince enough jurors that Arias does not deserve to die for the killing, but should instead spend the rest of her life in prison. Showing that Alexander was involved with another woman could be considered as a “mitigating factor” in their decision, they have argued.


wearing a purple sweater reportedly as a show of support for domestic violence victims.

I think by now, the I'm a victim defense is waning because anyone who murders, plans the murder and does it in the brutal fashion that Jodi did to Travis, a juror might be realizing that Jodi did it intentionally because Travis
did not want her anymore. I don't know that they have proved their defense theory. It's not like some domestic violence victims where they were being beaten and pulled out a gun and shot the guy.

Jodi rented a car, drove across state lines, entered Travis home uninvited, had sex with him, took photos of
them and then stabbed him in the shower while she was taking photos of him, then shot him in the head,
then cut his throat ....................It just doesn't add up for the defense.

East Valley Boy Scout dies in zip line accident
Video report by Jaime Cerreta
Posted on January 26, 2015 at 4:55 PM
Updated today at 11:05 AM

PHOENIX – An East Valley teen is dead after an accident involving a zip line. 3TV has learned the 15-year-old boy who was killed was Tony Flores.

It happened Saturday morning in the Forest Lakes community. A spokesman for the Coconino County Sheriff's Office said the 15-year-old was participating in a Boy Scout troop activity at a private residence at the time of the accident.

The nine boys and two adults were part of Boy Scout Troop 737 out of Queen Creek. They were going to do some zip lining, sledding and go on a compass course.

The adults went inside to get the braking equipment for the zip line.

Larry Abbott, CEO of Boy Scouts of America's Grand Canyon Council, told 3TV on the phone Monday night that one of the boys got on the zip line before the safety equipment was installed.

"I guess four of the boys decided they were going to hop on the zip line while the adults were in getting the equipment and the bungees are part of that braking system at the end," Abbott said. "And so the first boy who went down struck a tree at the end of the zip line because that braking system was not on it. At that point, another adult ran inside and got the other adults that were getting the equipment and they came out and administered CPR and then called 911 right away."

Tony was transported to Payson Medical Center, where he died from head injuries.

Abbott said this was a situation where two or three things went wrong and tragedy happened.

"Just a real tragedy. We want to be there for the family and for the kids in the unit and we're going to offer anything they need as far as assistance," Abbott said. "But our hearts go out -- especially to the family right now -- and to the other boys who are probably not in a real good place right now."

Tony was the son of Detective Esteban Flores of the Mesa Police Department. Flores has been a key witness in the Jodi Arias murder trial.

Defense to finally rest in Jodi Arias sentencing retrial

http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/mesa/2015/01/27/jodi-arias-retrial-defense-juan-martinez-testify/22404947/


The defense psychologists said that he used statements from Jodi Arias friends to determine her being a victim of an abusive relationship.

The problem with that is the psychologists should have done PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING ON THE BIMBO. If you use other people's statements it is hearsay and it's predicted on their interpretation which may or not be the case or foundation for a psychological disorder. In other words, poor defense. They shold have gone for something else.

On the stand, Monday was Vernon Parker, a Mormon Bishop, who Travis Alexander lived with for a time before he met Jodi Arias.

Parker testified that he never saw Travis viewing child porn as Jodi claimed he did, and never beat a former girlfriend as the defense claimed.

The defense cross-examined Parker and asked if someone who had unmarried sex, and committed various sexual acts was a sinner.

The move meant to harm Alexander's image as an upstanding member of the Mormon church.
http://www.fox10phoenix.com/story/28005973/2015/02/02/jodi-arias-sentencing-retrial-bishop-takes-the-stand


The problem, as I see it, with Nurmi's line of thinking that Travis was sinning because he had sex with Jodi and therefore he could be judged as someone who did things that people were not aware of is this: Mormon's are suppose to sustain from having intercourse. But, Jodi offered up her booty (puttin git nicely) for the act, but is that really intercourse in the Mormon belief system?
I don't know. I'll bet the jurors don't know either. Nurmi is trying to prove Travis is a sloth and it is not holding water. Most of those jurors have had sex and even maybe saw some porn for heavens sake.

I hope Juan Martinez drives it home that Jodi PLANNED, calculate the color of the car she rented, the gas cans she borrowed and purchased in order to drive out of state, changing the color of her hair, bringing a gun, manipulating him to have sex, take some sexy photos of him in the shower and then drove a knife into his heart, stabbed him not once, but several times, shot him in the head, then cut his throat is not just a woman who was rejected by her lover, but someone who is insane and was jealous with all her sneaky tire slashing, entering his home etc. The jury has to be dumb to believe that this is a woman who was abused.  She is dangerous.

Prosecution expert psychologist Dr. Janine DeMarte says Arias does not have post-traumatic stress syndrome and instead diagnosed her with borderline personality disorder, which does quality as a mental illness.In court on Wednesday, there was some powerful testimony as Dr. DeMarte referred to Arias as a "stalker," and "jealous and manipulative."Dr. DeMarte testified this eventually murderous behavior was not a result of post-traumatic stress disorder brought on by the way Travis treated Arias, and not a reaction to abuse at the hands of her family because there was no abuse.

[AND BAM!]
Instead, Dr. DeMarte placed the blame squarely on Arias herself.

I know we have all heard this testimony before, but after all the blatant lies b the defense and the endless attempts to stop the trial with one thing or another, it's refreshing to hear JODI IS A MURDEROUS PERSON WHO IS TO BLAME!

Jodi Arias sentencing retrial: jurors questioned by Judge Stephens
Posted: Feb 09, 2015 6:01 PM CST
Updated: Feb 09, 2015 6:48 PM CST

PHOENIX (KSAZ) - The Jodi Arias sentencing retrial stopped abruptly Monday afternoon as the judge announced she will question each member of the jury privately.

Judge Sherry Stephens did not say what the reason for the questioning was, but the fact she is calling each juror in individually means it is possible she is looking into some kind of misconduct.

The announcement came after a day of questions for a key prosecution witness, Psychologist Janeen Demarte.
 
In a bruising cross-examination, Arias defense attorney Kirk Nurmi ridiculed Dr. Demarte, suggesting she is an inexperienced hired gun. At one point even asking "When did you become this guru of psychological certitude."

The judge read questions from the jurors. They asked how much she knew about treating domestic violence and sexual abuse, and why her tests of Arias are more accurate than the tests done by psychologists hired by the Arias defense team.

There is no trial on Tuesday, the sentencing retrial resumes Wednesday.

Arizona Supreme Court won't reconsider ruling barring Jodi Arias from testifying in secret
Published February 10, 2015

PHOENIX –  The Arizona Supreme Court won't reconsider a ruling that bars convicted murderer Jodi Arias from testifying in secret at her sentencing retrial.

The court denied Arias' petition for review without comment Tuesday. That means a November ruling by the Arizona Court of Appeals will stand.

The appeals court overturned the trial judge's ruling that barred the public from being present during testimony from a witness that later was revealed to be Arias. A transcript of the testimony was released last month.

Day 37 of Jodi Arias trial: Attorney wants court watchers kicked-out
Posted: Feb 11, 2015 11:37 AM CST  Updated: Feb 11, 2015 7:02 PM CST

PHOENIX (CBS5) -
One of the attorneys for Jodi Arias demanded that the judge remove three members of the public from the courtroom Wednesday, claiming they were taunting a member if his staff.

Attorney Kirk Nurmi said the court watchers had directed racial comments towards a member of the defense team, outside the courthouse Monday afternoon, prompting the judge to launch an investigation and possible hearing.

The court watchers told CBS 5 they never taunted anyone.

Jodi Arias sentencing retrial: judge spoke with jurors Tuesday
Posted: Feb 11, 2015 6:23 PM CST
Updated: Feb 11, 2015 6:36 PM CST

PHOENIX (KSAZ) -
The Jodi Arias sentencing retrial rolled on in Superior Court, but not without a bit of courtroom intrigue and frustration coming out from the judge.

There was no trial on Tuesday; Judge Sherry Stephens said she would call each juror individually into her chambers with attorneys present on both sides.

Whatever she talked about was evidently ironed out, all jurors were in court for Wednesday's action.

On the witness stand was Robert Brown, who used to be a computer forensics expert with the Mesa Police Department. He testified the porn and evidence of porn website being visited on Travis Alexander's computer got there because of viruses.
 

There was a bit of a dustup in the court when the defense team said some court watchers taunted their mitigation specialist Maria De La Rosa by singing "La Cucaracha" while she walked outside the court.

But the court watchers say they broke into song while talking about a Mexican restaurant, and it had nothing to do with the mitigation specialist.

The Arias defense team said they wanted the court watchers out, but Judge Stephens said she had no knowledge of what happened, and that is where she left the matter.

Court resumes Thursday morning.
