Jury to Jodi Arias: Why believe you?

Jurors asked Jodi Arias if she would have come clean about killing Travis Alexander if she hadn't been caught lying. It wasn't until two years after she killed her ex-boyfriend in 2008 that she claimed self-defense. At that point, she had already changed her story more than once.

On day 30 of the trial, the judge continued to read questions from the jury about the evidence and sexual activities of the defendant. They also wanted her to answer why, after so many lies, they should believe her story of self-defense. CNN's Randi Kaye reports.

    Jodie lives in a world of her own. She pushes herself on men, hoping someone will take care of her, and her only 24hrs a day.

    This is the way I get how Jodi slaughtered Travis. While Travis is in the shower with his back to her which is 2 minutes before he was slaughtered, I think that is when Jodi started stabbing him, then obviously he turned around to defend himself, the defensive brutal wounds on his hands show that..............then he probably ran down the hall with Jodi in hot pursuit when she catches up with him, then slits his throat fromear to ear because after all the stabs Travis is certainly not in any position to fully defend himself......she then drags hi back to the bathroom blows a bullet into his head. Premeditation? absolutely. Then she put Travis in the shower hoping to clean all the blood up. That is my interpretation of the slaughter and I also believe that Jodi had intended to keep the murder scene in the bathroom and shower area so it would be easier for her to clean up the blood from the tile floor unlike a carpetted floor. But all her premeditation did play out the way she planned. RIP Travis.

    Has anyone else thought that Jodi's latest stories sounded a lot like the story in 50 shades of Grey? The rope, the candy, the photo's. That book did not come out until after Travis's death.

    Is Jodi is so ashamed she is willing to commit suicide, why is she working so hard in court to save her own skin. I would have thought she would relish the idea of a lethal injection.
