The live court session for Jodi Arias' first-degree murder trial will return on Tuesday for the 2008 Arizona killing of Travis Alexander. The trial can be watched via the free live stream below.
A new enlightenment to the case was made public when defense expert Dr. Alyce LaViolette. a domestic violnce expert provided proof that Alexander was abusive with an email he wrote to his friends. In the electronic message, Alexander called himself a sociopath and Arias a "booty call."
According to a report published in Azcentral.com, LaViolette reviewed the contents of an email Alexander to his friends Chris and Sky Hughes, with the subject line "You crossed the Line" on January 29, 2007.
The email's contents were outlined in court records filed in January, 2011 according to another report, with the following statements:
"A response from Mr. Hughes ... wherein he asserts that he believes Jodi would be his (Travis') next victim and that Jodi was just another girl that he (Travis) was playing" and "that Alexander considered Arias to be a "booty call.""
The filing also states that Alexander wrote a response to Hughes, stating: "I am a bit of a sociopath."
Alexander was also reportedly upset that the Hughes told Arias to stay away from him because he was abusive to women.
Martinez repeatedly objected to LaViolette reading directly from the emails so the defense expert gave an overview of its contents, according to the report.
Chris and Sky Hughes testified earlier in the trial as witnesses for the prosecution but, but did not discuss on the email. They may be called again as witnesses for prosecution.
Arias, 31, is on trial for murdering her ex-lover, Alexander. According to police, she stabbed her victim over 27 times, slit his throat from ear to ear and shot him in the head. His body was discovered the day he was killed: June 4, 2008. Arias lied twice at first about how Alexander was killed and later admitted that she killed him in an act of self-defense. If she is convicted of the murder and the lies that she confessed to, she will likely face the death penalty and become the fourth woman in Arizona's history to die by lethal injection.
Defense expert Dr. Alyce LaViolette, a domestic violence expert, is expected to return to the witness stand on April 2 to be cross-examined by prosecutor Juan Martinez.
