The Latest Twists in the Jodi Arias Trial

The latest details to emerge from the Jodi Arias trial involve the woman’s diary.
As it’s been widely reported, the 32-year-old Latina is charged with the gruesome murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.
Investigators say Arias stabbed Alexander 27 times in June 2008. Alexander, who was a Mormon and executive at a marketing company, met the soft-spoken Arias at a conference in Las Vegas in 2006. She allegedly began stalking Alexander (and even slashed his tires) after finding out he was dating other women.
At first, Arias said she didn't hurt her ex-boyfriend, but later admitted she did – and that it stemmed from self-defense.
Now, Arias’ diary has provided the latest twists in her investigation. According to ABC News, a page of diary entries by the Arizona woman was filled with lies in the weeks after Alexander’s death.
The page reportedly begins “.. that Travis is dead. What happened?!? Travis, what is this?"
The page of diary entries was seized by police from Arias’ bedroom in her grandparents’ California room.
Another entry, which was dated June 11, said in part: “Last night was so hard... I wanted so badly to call Travis, but knowing he wouldn't answer was too much to bear. And knowing he wasn't calling me anytime soon was just killing me. I broke down as I climbed into bed and just cried and cried and cried until I fell asleep.”
Alexander was shot and stabbed on June 4, 2008 – and his body found on June 9.
