In the murder trial against Jodi Arias, a prosecution witness testified that Travis Alexander “felt like a sex toy”. Jodi Arias is on trial for the brutal murder of Travis Alexander. Alexander was shot in the face, stabbed 27 times and had his throat slit ear to ear.
From the beginning, Jodi Arias has given multiply stories of what happened that violent night. In her first interview with police, she told them she wasn’t with Travis Alexander that night.
In her follow up with police, she stated two masked men broke into Alexander’s apartment and attacked both of them. When asked why she didn’t call the police, she responded that she was too scared to contact anyone.
In her final attempt to make herself look innocent of murder, Arias told police detectives that she killed Alexander in self-defense. She said he has gotten violent with her and she defended herself.
Five years after the brutal murder, Arias is finally on trial in Maricopa County, Arizona. Prosecutor Juan Martinez is seeking the death penalty against Arias.
On Thursday, the trial began the grisly phase of the prosecution’s case when a photograph of Travis lying slashed, shot and stabbed lying in a pool of blood in his shower. The prosecution also put a witness on the stand who testified that Alexander sent Arias a message on Facebook saying he “felt like a sex toy.”
Mesa Police Detective Esteban Flores related the information regarding the Facebook message to the jury. “I was nothing more than a dildo with a heartbeat for you.”
Flores also testified that Travis Alexander had sent Arias emails where he called her a “slut” and a “whore.” Flores also related details of an interview he conducted with Arias.
According to Flores, Arias told him that she and Alexander had dated for about five months. A recording of the interview revealed that Arias said, “We tried to remain friends. We were intimate but I would not say romantic as far as a relationship goes.”
The murder trial for Jodi Arias is scheduled to resume on Tuesday, January 8.
