ARIZONA (PIX11) – On the second day of the Jodi Arias murder trial, jurors were subjected to gruesome photographs taken of the scene where her ex-boyfriend was brutally stabbed to death.
The photos were introduced as evidence Monday in the trial where Arias is accused of murdering ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander by stabbing him 27 times and then shooting him in the head.
The disturbing photographs revealed blood splattered across a bathroom mirror, sink and on several walls. Also submitted as evidence, a bloodied t-shirt believed to have been Alexander’s.
As the trial gets underway, the couple’s sex life appears to be playing a central role in the case. Defense attorneys claim the brunette beauty was victimized by Alexander, and was coaxed into frisky bedroom behavior.
This, while prosecutors are painting Arias as a jealous ex-girlfriend who stalked him and grew furious after he started dating other women.
