The Jodi Arias murder trial is bringing up some interesting points and HLN host/victim's rights advocate, Nancy Grace, notes an unavoidable one. Is the sexy blonde too pretty for the death penalty? Grace tells RadarOnline Jan. 2 that she isn't.
The 32-year-old is charged with the brutal murder of her boyfriend, Travis Alexander. She allegedly killed him in 2008 by stabbing him 29 times and slitting his throat from ear-to-ear. He was found dead in his shower.
Arias has changed her hair from blonde to her natural color of brown. Grace notes that one's physical appearance can play a role in what sentence they get by the jury.
"I am always concerned about someone's physical characteristics influencing a jury and a judge," Grace said.
What she thinks will make the real difference is the fact that the crime was so horrendous and gruesome. Due to the "highly inflammatory" method of murder, Grace thinks Arias will have one of two options.
"She'll have the option of either gas or a needle," Grace continued. "Gas is painful so I think she'll pick needle, where she will just drift off to sleep like she's getting a facial or a massage."
Grace insists that Arias is "not too pretty for the death penalty!"
Grace added, "Similar to Tot Mom, she is a seemingly bright girl and hopefully her good looks won't affect how the jury looks at her."
This murder trial is getting a lot of media attention and is believed to be as big as the Casey Anthony trial over the 2008 murder of her toddler daughter, Kaylee Anthony.
