On Jan. 10, 2013, the jury in the Jodi Arias murder trial was given the opportunity to watch the defendant during a television interview in which she confidently stated, “no jury will convict me.”

“I understand all the evidence is really compelling… In a nutshell, two people came in and killed Travis. I’ve never even shot a gun. That’s heinous. I can’t imagine slitting anyone’s throat,” Arias said during the interview.”
She added, “No jury will convict me and you can mark my words on that… I am innocent.”
Months after the interview, Arias admitted killing Alexander, but claimed she did so in self-defense.
If convicted of Alexander’s murder, Arias could face the death penalty.
Arias, 32, is accused of murdering Alexander, 30, by shooting him in the head with a gun police believe she stole from her grandmother, slashing his throat, and stabbing him 27 times. After police recovered a camera memory card with images including Arias dragging Alexander’s lifeless body along the floor, she admitted to killing him, saying it was in self-defense.
