Jordan Graham Vs Jodi Arias: A Tale of the Tape

The trial of Jordan Graham who admitted today to killing her newlywed husband has prompted some observers to draw parallels to another high-profile case. The trials of Jodi Arias, who was convicted in May of killing her boyfriend in Arizona, and Graham, who pushed her husband off a Montana cliff on their honeymoon, share similarities. In both cases, the women first denied killing their lovers only to later claim they acted in self defense.
