    The detectives originally thought there was more than 1 person. Therefore, 2 or more would have been in DTs favor.

    The trial was concerned with actual evidence. Actual evidence was not in Arias' favor. At all.

    They thought there was more than one person based on conjecture and nothing more. They thought she must have had help because of the damage she did. There is zero evidence of another person. And I don't see how arguing for another person there would have helped. Having an extra person with her would have highlighted the premeditated aspect. Really, with that evidence, Jodi had no choice but self defense if she was going for full innocence.

    Ok , so JA gave up her career as an attorney. THank goodness for that. But I still do not understand how this next phase works.

    How do they get the new jury up to speed? Does JA get on the stand again and talk about the murder?

    She actually added that after it was quoted, presumably to clarify. No big.

    There are many posts explaining how it will proceed katydid23... but I can't comprehend the explanations until I see it happen.

    I don't know that there have been many (any?) trials that I have followed that this has happened with. There is the sidebar thread which a lot of folks are on that perhaps can answer your question..but I've never seen this happen in a case..

    Interesting to learn! I'll now know not to put stuff in quotations as a post...as it apparently doesn't get quoted on a reply quote. Didn't know that and good to know for the future.

    Well, if you add something after the post is already quoted it won't get posted in the reply. Happens to me all the time. The second line was an eta :).

    Elleelle, from the last thread- in answer to your question about Jodi dying her hair. Brown is her natural color that she dyed it back to. The reason she did it then was part of her alibi. Since everyone knew her only as a blonde, she'd be less likely to be recognized as a brunette, and her original story was that she was never in Arizona, which is why she used the gas cans- to not have to fill up in the state of Arizona.

    The alleged drawing that was smuggled out of the jailhouse by the mitigation specialist was that of a pin-wheel? Can someone post what a pin-wheel drawing looks like? I'm bemused.

    originally posted by ElleElle:

    "What is you definition of skull? The whole head? The whole head does not compromise all of brain."


    Here is a definition from medical dictionary at medterms:

    Skull: The skull is a collection of bones which encase the brain and give form to the head and face. The bones of the skull include the following: the frontal, parietal, occipital, temporal, sphenoid, ethmoid, zygomatic, maxilla, nasal, vomer, palatine, inferior concha, and mandible. http://www.medterms.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=5507

    And another one from the Cambridge Dictionary:
    the bones of the head, which surround the brain and give the head its shape http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/skull

    Hope this helps
