latest from the jodi arias trial. New police interrogation trial which jody's parents call her a strange person with mental problems and ryan owens last an exclusive interview with the woman kicked off the jury earlier this week and joins us from phoenix. Good morning, ryan. Reporter: Good morning, george. She's juror number the woman everybody has been waiting to hear from. She's a mom, immigrant to this country and she's a true crime fan. She's not yet ready to do a television interview. She's worried what she might say would cause a mistrial but she wants everyone to know she doesn't think she did anything wrong and she's very proud of her long jury service. And now to that tape of jodi arias' parents, the remaining jurors will not see it, but you will. In the same interrogation room where their daughter did headstands while waiting to be questioned, jodi arias' parents learned she was about to be charged with murdering her ex-boyfriend. How are you doing? Are you doing okay? Not good, no. As good as can be expected, i guess. I feel like I'm going to puke. Reporter: Her mother sandy tells the detective heir daughter is troubled but can't imagine she's capable of shooting and repeatedly stabbing travis alexander. Did you have any suspicion at all that she had anything to do with his death. I asked her. I asked her. That's the first thing I asked her. She swore she did not go to arizona so, of course, i believed her. You know, but I questioned her about it. Reporter: Arias' father is even tougher in his assessment of his daughter. You know, she was a strange person because some -- you know, after she left the house she was just kind of acting a little strange. Reporter: They were recorded in the summer of 2008 just before arias was charged with first degree murder. Now that she's on trial for her life, her mother is in the front row of the courtroom every day. Her father has health problems and has only made it one week of this three-month trial. I would call it a domestically abusive relationship. Reporter: This morning the jury will hear more from this psychotherapist hired by the defense claiming she was a battered woman who killed in self-defense and this witness believes her. Wednesday she testified about a fight they had months before the murder. Could you hold up your hand for us so we could see. Reporter: That now infamous argument that ended with alexander breaking her finger. During this argument he grabs her, throws her to the floor. When she hits the floor she makes a sound and he says, basically don't act like that . Then he kicks her a second time and she's trying to block that kick and he kicks her finger and breaks it. Reporter: It's important to remember this expert's version of that fight comes solely from the word of jodi arias who is an admitted liar. She never reported any abuse to police and the prosecutor says she's now making it all up. Robin? Okay there, ryan, thank you.
