they took pictures. but when she stabs him 29 times, almost decapitates him, shoots him in the head. and she says it's self-defense. but the prosecutor has a whole different theory here. that it was premeditated, cold-blooded murder, because she was obsessed with travis alexander. >> reporter: the end for jodi and travis was foul and heinous. but their courtship began quite innocently, in of all places, sin city. >> we were there for convention. our company had a big event there. i was there in las vegas with him. >> reporter: travis alexander was a motivational speaker and close friend and coworker of david hughes in the fall of 2006. >> i knew he was single and always looking for ms. alexander. >> enter saleswoman and aspiring photographer jodi arias. >> i told travis, hey, there is this cute girl i work with.
you should meet her. introduce me. i introduced them and they were able to develop a relationship pretty quickly from there. >> they met in vegas. the night they might, it seemed that things heated up very quickly. because jodi arias said within a week or so, they are having sex in a car. >> reporter: jodi and travis had an instant physical connection. a whirlwind romance, but a long distance one with her in palm desert, california, and him five hours away in mesa, arizona. still, that wouldn't slow them down. shana hogan, author of "picture perfect" about the jodi arias case. >> travis and jodi talked every day, exchanged thousands of e-mails and text messages. >> reporter: jodi was so attracted to travis, she converted to the church of latter day saints because travis was a mormon.
>> she started to inquire more about the lds faith, ended up joining the church. i'm sure that brought their relationship -- made it even stronger. >> reporter: to outsiders, travis and jodi appeared devout. a pure mormon couple, but appearances, as was often the case with these two, would prove deceiving. >> secretly, behind the scenes, travis and jodi's relationship was not pure, it was not chaste. they had this intense sexual relationship they kept hidden from everyone. >> but jodi couldn't keep everything hidden, especially from travis' long-time friends. many of whom found his new love a bit odd. and a bit troubling. >> we don't like jodi coming over to our home. we feel very uncomfortable. >> david hughes recalls a chilling encounter between his brother, his sister-in-law and jodi arias.

the state of arizona versus jodi ann arias, indictment. count one, first degree murder, premeditated murder. >> january 2nd, a trial more than four years in the making finally begins. >> this is not a case of whodunit. the person whodunit, the person who committed this killing sits in court today. it's the defendant, jodi ann arias. >> jodi arias was very confident that first day.
>> reporter: in session's beth karas has been in the courtroom every day of the trial. what was the forensic evidence that the prosecution said linked jodi arias to the crime scene. >> blood. fingerprints. palm print, and hair. >> jodi loved travis. and so what would have forced her to have to take travis' life on that awful day?
on that horrible day, jodi believed that travis was going to kill her. >> can you speak to how much contact you had with ms. arias? >> the defense began with a friend of jodi's. >> probably a minimum of once a week we would touch base with each other. she was always very well spoken, a little timid, shy. >> a former boyfriend. >> i know jodi because we were in love. >> and even friends of travis. >> how did travis treat jodi when it was the four of you? >> very well. >> what did he do? >> they just seemed happy to be with each other, very cuddly and very much a couple. >> please be seated. the record will show the presence of the defendant, jury and all counsel. >> reporter: then on the trial's 14th day, a deceptive routinely order from the judge. >> ladies and gentlemen, i'm going to ask you go back to the jury room for approximately three minutes and then return. >> ms. arias, come forward and take a seat please. >> all of a sudden, i see jodi arias walking across the courtroom to the witness stand. >> reporter: minutes later as they file back in, an extraordinary moment for jurors. seeing without warning the accused gazing at them from the witness stand. >> jurors filed in, and are used to seeing her sitting over at counsel table and it took a minute to realize she is in the witness box, she's going to tell her story. >> do you solemnly swear the
testimony you will give is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you god? >> yes, i do. >> i'm not guilty, i didn't hurt travis. i turned around and there are two people there, one was a guy, one was a girl. >> reporter: after having told investigators two different stories of her innocence, now jodi admitted under oath she was a killer. >> did you kill travis alexander on june 4, 2008? >> yes, i did.
>> why? >> the simple answer is he attacked me, and i defended myself. >> reporter: jodi testified that while travis made her fear for her life, he wasn't the first to abuse her. >> it appears their strategy was that everything happened in her life from her childhood and through all of the relationships with men, culminated in this killing. >> your life is pretty ideal up until about age seven. was something different after age seven? >> that was the first year my dad started using a belt. >> jodi said her brawny father inflicted great pain and so did her mother. >> my mom began to carry a wooden spoon in her purse. if we were misbehaving she would use it on us. >> what do you mean by use it on you? >> she would hit us with it. >> she hit you hard? >> it felt pretty hard, yes. >> she said those spankings by her mother and father left welts and painful memories. >> how did you feel when your own mother was beating you? >> when i was younger, i remember feeling -- i didn't have a word for it then, but i can describe it as betrayed and confused.
and as i got a little bit older, it would just really make me mad because i just -- i didn't get why. >> the part of her life we learned a lot about from her testimony was her teenage years, and apparently a troubled teenager. she has problems with her parents. whose fault is it, do we know? the result of that is that she gets punished, and instead of being grounded for three months at age 17, she decides to move out, she decides to drop out and she decides to move in with her boyfriend. >> jodi portrayed herself as someone who made a string of bad is choices when it came to men. describing one abusive relationship after another. especially travis alexander, admitting she loved him, despite his being what she described as being demeaning, physically abusive and controlling. even when she converted to his mormon faith. >> at the beginning of her experience in the mormon religion, it's been a real sordid double life. >> reporter: a somber jodi recalls the day that travis
baptized her, things changed. >> i was in my church clothes, he was in his church clothes. the kissing got more passionate, and he spun me around and he bent me over the bed and he was just on top of me. i didn't think anything -- i thought he was going to keep kissing me. he began to have anal sex with me, and -- >> after this encounter, on this spiritual day, how did you feel about yourself? >> after he left -- shortly after he left, i felt -- i didn't feel very good. i kind of felt like a used piece of toilet paper. >> for travis' sister and other relatives, jodi's explicit testimony was difficult to hear.
family and friends have maintained that much of it is lies and travis never mistreated her. >> travis was a great guy, very nice, very kind, very considerate. what the defense is portraying is absolutely not accurate. >> do me a favor and take a look at this exhibit, see if you recognize it. >> but her attorney presented text messages from travis, appearing to treat jodi as his sex slave. >> he says this photo shoot is going to be one of the best experiences of your life and his. and he talks about all the pictures he is going to take of you. and he says the progressiveness of it from the very clean to the very dirty and everything in between. he also says you'll rejoice in being a whore whose sole purpose in life is to have animal sex with me and please me in any way i desire. >> secretly they are having this life that is very sexual. i mean, it is the basis and
really almost the entire part of what their relationship is about. >> he wanted me to put pop rocks in my mouth while i gave him oral sex. >> and did you do that? >> yes. >> and the tootsie pops, what did they turn out to be needed for? >> he wanted to put the tootsie pop inside of me. >> the jurors even heard travis' voice as he had phone sex with jodi. >> that was so hot. that actually so like the way you moan, it's sounds like you are a 12-year-old girl having her first orgasm. that's so hot. >> they also took very explicit nude photos. including this, the last one of travis alexander alive.
next, murder and a memory lapse. >> what i finally came to, i saw there was blood on my hands. ing with the spark cash card from capital one... boris earns unlimited rewards for his small business. can i get the smith contract, please? thank you. that's three new paper shredders.

i kind of felt like -- like a prostitute sort of. >> reporter: day after day -- >> he pulled done my underwear. >> reporter: detail after graphic detail. >> called me a bitch and kicked me in the ribs. >> reporter: but on the 7th day, jodi arias' testimony went just sex and violence, it was finally what everyone had waited for. her killing of travis alexander. >> do you remember about what time you arrived in mesa? >> it was still dark, but it was early morning, maybe around 4:00ish. >> reporter: she took the jury through her memory of that fateful day. how travis snapped photos of her, intimate and provocative.
>> what do you think when you see that picture? >> what a stupid idiot i was. >> why did you participate? >> he was excited about a new camera he got, and he wanted to play around with it. >> reporter: later that afternoon, they were in travis' home office, when he asked for copy of their vacation photos she has on cds. >> i got the cds out, they looked pretty scratched, which he noticed and got upset about because it was my fault that they were scratched. so now he was able to bring up the cd on his screen, and most of the images came up as little gray squares instead of photos. and i went to walk over to him to rub his back or something, to make sure he was okay, and let him know i still had the
pictures on my other drive. i was going to apologize, and he stood up and the chair got pushed to the side and he spun me around and bent me over the desk and pressed up against me. >> at that point in time, did you want to have sex with mr. alexander? >> well, yeah, actually i did. it was better than him getting mad. i was actually relieved. >> well, she is claiming that, number one, she just wanted to please him. i just want to keep him happy or he gets mad. if he gets mad, he slashes out and gets really, really angry if he wasn't angry, i would have sex with him and he's turn into the nice travis. >> reporter: after having sex, jodi agreed to take photos of travis in the shower with his new camera. according to jodi, it would lead
to a fatal altercation. >> as i took photos, i dropped the camera slipped out of my hand and hit the mat and rolled on to the tile. >> what happened after you drop the camera? >> at this point, travis flipped out again. he stood up and he stepped out of the shower and picked me up as he was screaming that i was a stupid idiot and body slammed me again on the tile. he told me that a 5-year-old can hold a camera better than i can. when i hit the tile, i rolled over on the side and started running down the hallway. so i ran into the closet and i slammed the door. and as soon as i got in there, i
began to run, i remembered where he kept a gun. >> there is zero evidence, independent evidence, evidence other than words out of jodi arias' mouth that establishes travis alexander as a gun owner. there is none. >> i grabbed the gun. i ran out of the closet. he was chasing me. i turned around, we were in the middle of the bathroom, pointed it at him with both of my hands. i thought that would stop him. if someone were pointing a gun at me, i would stop. but he got like a linebacker, kind of low and grabbed my waist. but before that, as he was lunging at in, the gun went off. >> the angle of the wound, it enters her and comes out his check. it might have lodged inside. she was over him.
>> i didn't know i shot him. it just went off, and he lunged at me and we fell really hard against the tile toward the other wall, so he's grabbing at my clothes, and he got up and he's just screaming and angry. >> the medical examiners testified that the gunshot wound would have debilitated travis if it happened first. he believes it happened after travis was already dead. if it happened first, travis alexander wouldn't be able to do anything, let alone chase jodi arias around the house like she claims. >> reporter: when travis' body was found in the shower, there was only one gunshot wound, but nearly 30 knife wounds and he was nearly decapitated. an unforgettable scene that jodi claims she doesn't remember.
>> do you remember stabbing travis alexander? >> i have no memory of stabbing him. i was in the bathroom, and i remember dropping the knife and it clanged to the tile. it made a big noise, and i remember screaming. i don't remember anything after that. there's a lot of that day i don't remember. a lot of gaps. like i don't know if i blacked out or what. there is a huge gap. >> wow. next thing you know, she's in the desert driving and she has blood on her hands. her blood? does she know what she did? she throws the gun in the desert, doesn't know where. and then she cleans her hands
and she realizes she'd done something wrong and she starts to cover her tracks. this is her story. >> reporter: coming up, the prosecutor goes on the attack. >> can you imagine how much you must have hurt mr. alexander when you stuck that knife right into his chest? that must have hurt, right? >> objection. argumentative. >> sustained.

>> martinez has been relentless in trying to unravel the story of jodi, the story of an abuse victim that the defense had presented to the jury. >> she claims that her disfigured ring finger on her left hand was caused by travis alexander in a domestic violence incident. >> could you hold up your hand for us so we can see? >> she'd shown her still crooked finger to the injury. but martinez confronted here with this picture, no bent finger, taken months after the alleged incident. >> you don't have a bent finger here in exhibit 453, do you? >> my finger is bent there. >> you're saying that your finger is bent there? >> yes. >> martinez was on a mission to expose what he presented as jodi's litany of lies to friends, family and police. >> you were thinking more of yourself when you made this statement to this detective, right?
