Why is her trial such a big deal? She failed as a waitress and everything else.
Guess she makes a great killer.

She may not be crazy but she's not normal either. Anyone who kills someone the way Travis was killed is not completely normal in my book. She couldn't hold a job or any kind of gainful employment for long. Jodi isn't capable of living in the real world. She doesn't appear to be able to cope with life's problems. That's why this jury should have at least given her LWOP. They should have realized that Jodi would pose a risk to others if she's released. This trial went on for too long. The jury became connected to her and may have felt some compassion for her because she obviously comes across as twisted. Just the same, she is also manipulative and controlling. Anyway, all the stalling and grandstanding appears to have worked for Jodi. At least for now. I wonder what will happen with the next jury. What an expense this trial has taken.

I was dumbfounded that the jury could see all that evidence and not be able to come to a unanimous vote of either LWOP or Death Penalty. I know some really struggle with the Death Penalty, but I believe this case warranted it. As the trial went on, I could see where LWOP might be a better option because there would be no automatic appeal and the jurors wouldn't suffer, feeling that they themselves were killers. I think Willmott pulled a rabbit out of her hat at the 11th hour by humanizing Ms. 7-11 (her 7-11 jail cell) and asking that her life be spared. The problem was that she didn't sway 8 of the jurors. I think that someone should have driven home how much Travis Alexander had overcome to get where he was at the age of 30. I was still in college at age 30 and had a decent condo, but that was about it. I decided to go back and get more education. It's awful that Travis never got the chance to go to college.
His writing indicates he was plenty smart enough to go to college. Some say he had esteem issues due to his childhood and weight issues at times. He was conquering his weight issue. He was tackling other problems. He had goals. He was cut down in the prime of his life.
