Transcript for Jodi Arias Murder Trial: Jury Asks More Than 100 Questions
For more let's bring in "gma" legal analyst dan abrams. This is one of the few states that allow the back and forth jury asking the key witness, the defendant questions. I've never seen anything like it. It's amazing. The jurors sitting there getting to question the defendant and then getting to ask follow-up questions. The problem is they don't get to ask them immediately after she answers them. Look, on the whole, these are tough questions. On the whole, it seems that the jurors are skeptical of jodi arias' story, but there are some questions that were asked that could give her hope that maybe one or two of the jurors are accepting her account, which, again, a hung jury would be a huge win for jodi arias. And among some of the tougher questions, if you didn't know the gun was loaded why did you it instead of trying to rung away? And there were a lot of variations of this basic premise they were asking her about. The key question here is why didn't she just leave the house rather than go to the closet? Actually if you see the layout of the house it would have been very easy for her to run out down the stairs instead of simply into the closet to get the gun. And so that's why she's focused in on that. She's claiming, that, well, i tried to run away before and he caught me. I thought by pointing the gun at him it would scare him. Jodi arias, again, I said this many times, doesn't slip up. She wasn't rattled at all. She never gets rattled. Tough logistical question like this, if you shot alexander first, how did the bullet casing land on the blood? The prosecution asked that same question. It doesn't make sense but, again, this is the beauty of jodi arias saying she doesn't really remember what happened around the time that she killed him. So she can say, yeah, I'm not certain. Maybe it happened when we were, you know, fighting or whatever the case may be. But I'm not sure. That's the problem for her is that she says she doesn't remember exactly what happened when they were fighting and when she stabbed him and yet she remembers all these other details and that's what a lot of the juror questions were focused on which is how is it you remember so many of these details but not the actual killing. Fascinating interaction and more of it today. More to come today.
