Transcript for Arias Jury Questions May Offer Clues to Verdict
latest on the jodi arias trial and as the jury deliberates her fate right now could the hundreds of questions asked during the trial be clues to her fate? Abc's ryan owens has the story. Is there any reason we should believe that jodi has not manipulated you as she has others? Reporter: Long before the jurors reach a verdict in a sense they have long spoken. How do you know she hasn't killed travis out of jealousy. Reporter: Through the hundreds of questions they have asked witnesses. After all the lies you have told why should we believe you now. Lies isn't typically something I just do. Reporter: Arizona is only one of a few state that allows questions from the jury and this group has taken full advantage for four months. Why is it that you have no memory of stabbing travis? I can't really explain why my mind did what it did. Reporter: Many sounded profoundly skeptical of jodi arias and her claim that she killed travis alexander in self-defense. I think by asking them to have questions they tend to make up their mind earlier which means they've deliberated prior to hearing the evidence and polarizes them. Reporter: Which may explain why the verdict is taking longer than expected. While the questions seem pro-prosecution, attorney mark geragos says one word. Jodi. Jodi. Jodi. Reporter: The fact that they used jodi as opposed to her last name or the moniker, defendant, indicates that there is a familiarity there and it will make it tougher for them, i think, and maybe it gives some indication to give her the death penalty. Reporter: So 13 hours and counting now for these deliberations. The jurors, the eight men and four women will be back in the courthouse behind me in a couple of hours to begin day four. Lara, this is a very tense time for both sides as there is nothing anybody can do but wait. No kidding. Ryan owens, we thank you so much.
