The sister of Jodi Arias’ victim, Travis Alexander has spoken out about Arias. When asked if she wanted Aria to receive the death penalty, Tanisha Sorenson told HLNTV that she wanted to “watch her [Arias] die.”
Arias shot Alexander, her former boyfriend, in the face with a .25 caliber gun and stabbed him 27 times. She then slit his throat from ear to ear in his Mesa apartment leaving his bloodied body in the shower.
Sorenson spoke to HLNTV about her feelings toward Arias. “I know this might sound creepy, but I hope to get to watch her die someday after she’s on death row. Even if it’s in 20 years from now, the death penalty is what she deserves, though she most likely won’t get it and instead will get some life sentence.”
“It [the trial] will all be worth it when this evil person is convicted. I mean she really though she wasn’t going to get caught and messed up too many times.”
“She thinks she can be that cunning and charming that she’ll be able to have a jury believe her after all this, that she can play the self-defense card after all her previous stories didn’t work out for her.”
When speaking about her beloved brother Travis, Sorenson became visibly emotional. “Travis was an amazing person and great example for me. His death was so hard for me, we are the closest in age.”
“After his death, I decided to become a better person and become active in our church and am thankful for the Gospel in which brings some peace to my heart and mind knowing that I will see my brother, parents and eternal family again someday. I look forward to the day I get to give him a great big hug.”
