Okay, it’s just day three buy it feels like day 9,492 to me. If you missed yesterday, it was a tedious day in the courtroom for trial watchers. Martinez made some good points here and there but was often dragged off the major points by Arias and her absolute refusal to give straight answers. Jodi would ask what words like ‘fault’ and ‘independent’ mean. She would claim not to remember, or answer with “I think” rather than giving a definitive answer to the question. She even corrected Martinez on points of law by saying things like “that sounds like a compound question” even before her attorney could object. She claimed on the stand that Martinez was scrambling her brain with his posture and tone and aggressive questioning. And then, after lunch court was abruptly adjourned for the day because Arias has not been receiving lunches from the jail and she claimed she had a migraine and was unable to continue.
For the love of GAWD if the defendant even bothers to show up today, can Martinez please stick to evidence of premeditation and drive home to the jury that this chick stabbed someone 29 times, slit his neck from ear to ear cutting nearly through to the spine and shot him in the face? Perhaps point out that self-defense never includes multiple weapons? And most of all break this bitch down on the stand? Please?
