Accused murderer Jodi Arias, the photographer who admitted that she committed the horrific murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in 2008, has a secret lesbian lover in the prison where she is currently living.
HLN host Nancy Grace broke the news that when she went to tour the Estrella Jail in Phoenix, Arizona, an insider revealed that Arias is in a new relationship with a fellow inmate.
Grace broke the story Jan. 30 live on HLN. After she reported the story, she turned to legal expert Matt Zarrell for his thoughts on her secret love affair. Zarias' stated that Arias' new relationship is more proof that she can "charm her way into any relationship... but this time it is with the same sex, with a female."
The identity of Arias' secret lesbian lover was not identified.
Arias, 32, is accused of murdering Travis Alexander, her ex-lover. When Alexander's body was discovered in his Mesa, Arizona home on June 4, 2008, police discovered he had been shot in the face, stabbed 27 times and his throat was slit from ear to ear.
Enstars reported that on day 12 of Arias' first-degree murder trial, her attorneys called in a friend of murder victim as a defense witness. Daniel Freeman, a close friend of Alexander's, testified on Thursday that Alexander and Arias' relationship was a secret affair that was kept from him. Freeman said Arias was never at Alexander's home when he went to visit him, so he assumed that their friendship was platonic. If they had sex, the pair would have breaking Mormon laws and values he testified.
Prosecutor Juan Martinez asked Freeman on Thursday, Jan. 31, if he was aware that Alexander and Arias had oral sex around the time that she was baptized at their church.
"No," Freeman replied.
The defense team brought in Lisa Diadoni, Alexander's ex-girlfriend, on day 11 to support their case that Alexander was a liar and a cheater who had a secret sexual relationship with Arias. She testified on Wednesday that she was shocked to learn that Alexander cheated on her by sleeping with Arias while she dated him off-and-on beginning in July of 2007.
"After Travis' death were you shocked to learn that he was not a virgin?" Arias' defense attorney Jennifer Wilmott asked Diadoni.
"Yes," she replied.
Arias' murder trial has made global headlines because if she is convicted for the crime, she will likely face the death penalty. If so, Arias will be the fourth woman in Arizona's history to die by lethal injection.
The jury was sent home for the weekend after the day 12 hearing ended on Thursday. The trial will resume on Monday, Feb. 4, at 10:30 a.m. PST/7:30 EST.
