    I just got home from work, came here and watched Steven and Samantha's stàtements.

    Absolutely heart wrenching, yet this is part of the road they must travel to begin healing.

    Almost five years later, they are finally allowed to put words to their pain.

    Powerful, indeed. I stand in awe.

    And she makes everything so melodramatic. We have all seen JAs mother throughout the trial but Jean paints an unrealistic picture of this woman and wants to morph her into being endearing which imo is just not the truth.

    IMO

    There was no remorse. Just as his family was mourning the loss of Travis from their lives, JA was grieving the loss of the life she wanted... They were describing how awesome Travis was and how hard he worked and how he worked to achieve his dreams. How he made something from nothing. And JA wanted his life so badly that when he kicked her out of his life, he too had to forfeit it. She wasn't crying over what Travis lost, or how devastated his family is... she was crying over what SHE lost and how he cost her everything. She is NOT sorry.

    For his family to speak of the lies JA told about their brother would be reminding the world of the lies that she told. Stephen touched on it and I believe that was enough. The jury knows she made that stuff up. They didn't need to let those words...those filthy LIES pass their lips, even to defend him. Juan did that well enough.

    I just keep wondering if she had only stabbed him once and he died how would this trial have gone.

    I think she is pinning her hopes on this case leading her to a big network anchoring job.

    She's going to be bitterly disappointed.

    You read my mind. Been wondering about that the past few days...or one gunshot...and left him to die. She hung herself. Took her own crime scene pics and went stabby enough to get the DP.

    Jean lost me during the Melanie McGuire trial. McGuire is the woman from NJ who killed her husband, chopped him up into pieces and placed his body parts in separate suitcases and drove to Maryland/Virginia and threw the suitcases into the Chesapeake Bay. McGuire is somewhat attractive in appearance and very petite and throughout that trial Jean C seemed enthralled by her -referring to Melanie as being "LOVELY, Just Lovely!" Made me ill and I've never forgotten it. I'll take Beth ANY DAY! Beth is awesome. She's genuine, smart, and a straight shooter. No drama or BS with Beth!

    I just watched Samantha and Stephen and they absolutely broke my heart. I did not even know Travis and I was near bawling at one point. The fact that JA was not a mess shows me that she has no feeling. That she is not sorry. That she does not feel bad for his family.

    I am stuck between which would be a worse fate for JA. Life in prison or the death penalty. I do not believe anything she says about wanting death, I almost think she says that because she would prefer life. Nothing is bad enough for her. However, I truly wish the family was able to decide her fate, if they in fact wanted to make that decision. The Alexander family has such class that I do not even know if they would do what would be worst for JA. This family is amazing

    Here's the People Magazine article, it was a source (probably Donovan) who said Arias changed her mind about the DP.

    After her conviction, Arias told a reporter that she would prefer to die quickly than to live a long life in prison. A source close to Arias tells PEOPLE that, after reflecting on what she said, Arias would prefer a life sentence over execution.

    OMG! Yes! They would know!!!

    I HAD A MAJOR AIRHEAD MOMENT! LOL!

    So embarrassed!

    ETA - I think I was thinking that she would physically be in the court room and jurors would see her face, but it wouldn't be shown on camera. But they are video taping her, hey? DUH on my part.

    Defendants Motion to Preclude States Penalty Phase Witnesses for Failure to Notice

    Good evening Mellinyce and everyone!
    :seeya:

    This must have been before the Judge's order NOT to do interviews, or as quoted in an earlier post, a "source" told People.


    One question. I have seen parts of Nurmi's addressing the court today, however, nothing on whether he is finished or if there will be more tomorrow?

    All these talking heads are now yapping about Dr. Drew's "reaction to his reaction of Samantha's statement." Why, oh, why do I watch this every night?
