Transcript for Jodi Arias Answers Jury's Questions in Murder Trial
the juror questions in the jodi arias trial. Dan abrams is here to weigh in but first abc's ryan owens is in phoenix with the latest. Good morning, ryan. Reporter: Good morning, to you, george. I have to tell you this has been absolutely fascinating to watch. Arizona is one of just a handful of states that allow jury members to actually question each witness. And when that witness is an admitted killer with an ever-changing story, well, it turns out they have ang awful lot of questions. Arias, you are still under oath. Do you understand. Reporter: She's spent 16 days in her capital murder trial. Of all these, these may murder most. While you were mad at travis while you were stabbing with him? Why didn't you call 911? Wednesday the judge read the questions from the jurors who hold arias' life in their hands. Did you ever see a doctor for your memory issues? Have you ever taken medication for your memory issue? Reporter: The jury kept asking the 32-year-old about her claim she can't remember repeatedly stabbing her ex-boyfriend travis alexander in the bathroom of his mesa, arizona, home. How is it that you remember so many of your sexual encounters including your ex-boyfriend's, but you do not remember stabbing travis and dragging his body? Well, as far as what happened ON JUNE 4th, I DON'T KNOW HOW The mind works nelsonly but i know that that was the most traumatic experience of my life. Reporter: She confidently answered every question including one juror's request that she walk them through the crime again while pointing at this diagram of the bathroom. I ran down the hallway. I ran into the closet. I slammed thedoor. Reporter: Arias admits she killed alexander but claims she had to in self-defense, a few of the questions sounded skeptical of that. If travis attacked you on JUNE 4th, WHY NOT JUST TELL THE Police the truth from the start? That one is kind of a complicated answer. Reporter: The prosecutor says arias killed in cold blood and then lied repeatedly to cover her tracks. She even attended the memorial service for the man she killed. And sent sympathy flowers to the woman who raised him. Why did you send his grandmother plowers? In retrospect, it probably wasn't a good idea but I felt that it would be more insensitive to not do anything at all. Reporter: Jury members can submit follow-up questions so it's been very interesting to watch as she's answering, george, they're scribbling new questions on a piece of paper then passing that paper to the juror in front of them who will put it in a basket dore the judge and attorneys to review. Good questions, too, thanks, ryan.
