The world is still reeling from the gruesome murder trial of Jodi Arias. The case captivated the nation with its tale of sex, betrayal, and murder. Arias was convicted of killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in 2008 and sentenced to life in prison. The murder was a brutal affair, and she stabbed him 27 times, cut his throat, and shot him in the head.
During her trial, Arias presented three different accounts of the incident. Friends of Alexander said that she was obsessive and jealous of his relationship with another woman, and they claimed that she slashed his tires, hacked into his phone, and made threats against him. Despite the fact that many people believed her story, she was able to avoid death row, and she was sentenced to life in prison.
In the years since her conviction, Arias has been in and out of court as she tries to overturn her sentence on grounds of prosecutorial misconduct. She has also become famous for her sexy wardrobe and for her war with one of the attorneys on her legal team, Laurence “Kirk” Nurmi.
During the trial, Arias became close to two fellow inmates named Donavan Bering and Tracy Brown. The trio became inseparable, and the pair started doing whatever Arias asked. They even smuggled in a tattoo machine to help her get some body art done. Arias continues to sell her artwork from prison and keeps up with her followers on Twitter.
