A woman in Eugene, Ore., began recruiting signees to the petition at the activist-driven startup change.org Wednesday. "We believe her Twitter proxy account is an attempt to sway the public with more lies and veiled verbal attacks on the Prosecution's case against her. Jodi Arias should not be able to reach out to the public nor should she be able to profit from the exposure of a televised case for which she is on trial for murder," the petition stated.
The trial in the 2008 murder of Travis Alexander continues Thursday with more testimony from a defense witness.
