Transcript for Jodi Arias Murder Trial: Testimony About Ex's Death
Let's get more on this, now, from our legal team. Nancy grace, the host of "nancy grace" on hln. And dan abrams, back. Nancy, I'll toss it up to you. She doesn't remember. Well, before I address jodi arias, just to you, robin. I'm loving you across the miles. Welcome back, friend. Oh, thank you. Now, to jodi arias. Your question, george, thank you. I watched arias in court. I watched her on the stand. Very carefully. This is the inconsistency. Well, first of all, there's a lot of inconsistencies in her story. Inconsistencies that don't match up. I've got the medical examiner's report right here that says, that indicates, the gunshot wound was after the 29 stabbings, including ear-to-ear slashing. So, her story, said they were self-defense. And she doesn't remember pulling the trigger and shot him first, doesn't jive with what the m.E. Said. But my original thought was, after all these days of minute testimony, right down to a four-cheese omelet she had five years ago, to where she leapt, to where she stopped for a diet coke, all the way to the fact that after the murder, she had a cosco bottle of water out in the desert, where she threw away the murder weapon. How can she go blank when she pulls his head back and slashes him from ear-to-ear? That's not the kind of thing you forget. Dan abrams? Look, nancy's right. Tough credibility. Almost impossible fact. And yet, I'm still going to say that I think that all that considered, she was as good a witness as she possibly could have been. With bad facts? With terrible facts. But she cried at the right time. She basically saidhe tried to cover up the crime at certain points, making concessions. She's looking at the jurors at the right time. If anything was going to work, in this case, I think she did it as well as she could have. And failing to remember, is the only possible way -- if she said she did remember, she would be in more trouble than to say she doesn't remember. You left something out, dan. I love the part on the stand where she says he beat her before and she got a broken ring finger. She gets to testifying and telling the lies, she accidentally lets it straighten out. I think that one, little detail, we should focus on. The real question is goingo be, did her testimony enhance her chance of possibly bonding with a juror or two and get a hung jury or a second-degree murder chance? Or did she enhance her chance of getting the death penalty because the jurors are listening to her saying, I don't believe a word she's saying? Nancy, you've been keeping a close eye on this jury. Yes, I really have. What disturbed me was a lot of them were taking notes, fast and furious. When she said, quote, everything is a big gap. The defendant, co-defendant, eyewitnesses that were involved in the crime, mysteriously have a memory lapse or look the other way at the precise moment of the knifing or the shooting or the drug transaction, that's exactly what she did. And when she said she forgot, the jury actually put down their pens and pencils and sat back and went, what? What are they going to write down? She forgot. And she faces cross-examination. She lies. She didn't forget.
