Friends of convicted Arizona killer Jodi Arias in spotlight on new show
PHOENIX – Friends of notorious Arizona convicted murderer Jodi Arias and the man she killed will tell their stories this weekend in a new TV show.
The Reelz network will premiere “Jodi Arias: The Friends Speak” on Sunday at 6 p.m. Arizona time, with a repeat showing at 9 p.m. It’s also scheduled to air Dec. 12 at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Here is the Arias episode’s description from the Reelz website:
Jodi Arias was found guilty of killing her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, back in 2008. The murder shocked and confused the public. How could this beautiful, intelligent, well-spoken woman brutally stab her ex-boyfriend multiple times before blowing his head off with a .25 caliber handgun? Was Jodi Arias a sex-crazed stalker with murderous intent? Or was Jodi the victim of abuse at the hands of a controlling boyfriend? Her friends set the record straight.
In preview clips, friends of Alexander describe their reaction when they learned he’d been stabbed multiple times and shot in the head at his Mesa home.
A judge gave Arias, now 39, a life sentence in 2015, two years after a jury convicted her of first-degree murder.
Her appeal is still making its way through Arizona’s courts four years after it was filed.
