A case that, for most of us, started back in January, actually began almost five years ago. The Alexander family have spent these last years praying and fighting for the justice Travis demanded, when his poor broken body was found crumpled in his shower stall. Today, screams of elation could be heard from outside the courthouse when the jury announced Jodi Arias was guilty of “Murder One.”
The guilty verdict breaks down as follows: Premeditation 5 Guilty, Felony Murder 0 Guilty, Premeditation & Felony Murder 7 guilty.
Honestly though, Jodi Arias to very end really believed that she was going to get away with this heinous crime on the backs of true domestic violence victims. I know, that I as I watched with bated breath for the verdict to be read, in the back of my mind I worried that she had gotten away with it. But, thank God these jurors did their due diligence and got the job done!
It was heartwrenching to watch the emotions of the Alexander family but also relieving. This family has had to sit for months in the courtroom with a person who did nothing but drag Travis’ name and character through the mud! I just want to say that I commend them. There is no way I could have been able to do it.
Following today’s proceedings the Alexander family released this statement:
“Travis Alexander’s surviving brothers and sisters Samantha Alexander, Gary Alexander, Dennis “Greg” Alexander, Tanisha Sorenson, Hillary Wilcox, Steven Alexander, and Allie Iglesias are in agreement with the jury’s verdict of guilt against Jodi Arias.”
“They would like to thank Deputy County Attorney Juan Martinez and Detective Steve Flores for their hard work and professionalism in this case. The siblings appreciate the outpouring of support they have received from the public.”
The Alexander family also released the fact that Buesing, Hernacki and Beckstead PLLC would be filing a wrongful death suit on their behalf.
Today’s verdict has restored my faith in our Justice System…has it for you? Our thoughts and prayers here at TVFishbowl will continue to go out to the Alexander family.
