I think today is a short court day, not sure. I'd say she had a makeover in hopes of not being easily recognized at his house. That white hair she had stands out.

I remember when Det. Flores told Jar Jar Jo Jo Stabbs that the neighbors saw her at Travis's hair, she said his neighbor would know her as a blond or something like that.

Kind of interesting that the last internet activity on his computer was around 5 p.m. on the day of the murder. Not knowing if he had his computer up in his apt. or in a separate office, etc., hard to know who accessed it.

In other news, finally an MD on the rebuttal witness list:

Reports are Dr Horn, MD, Maricopa County Medical Examiner is set to testify again TODAY as part of Rebuttal.

Purportedly, JM and Dr Horn will show Arias has lied on the stand about the gunshot. That's all we know.

Is it true that Robot_Mott got some ugly messages on her cell phone?
Maybe she is regretting her way of making a living? Maybe she can run away to Europe with bi-bi cry baby. She's too old to have children.

Dr. Horn's testimony was more precise today, at least to me. He went into more detail about Alexander's brain injury than I recall when he previously testified.

In all reality, it does not really matter to me which happened firs; the gun shot or knife wound. Arias' intent was to kill Alexander and she succeeded. For that, she should be punished rightfully.

Looks like Arias and the jury has Horn's testimony to carry them through until next Wednesday. Having LaViolette and Samuels' "expert" testimonies, I really do not know what Dr. Geffner can add to refute DeMarte's testimony. But then again, Arias has a right to a proper defense and this is all part of it. God bless America!

Nothing. I couldn't even get through his whole training/workshop/seminar. Bored to pieces.
I've heard a great deal of that before. He talks about aggression vs. true domestic violence, pushing buttons, sociopaths, substance abuse, and on and on. I wish the Medical Examiner, Dr. Horn, had been the last witness. Trot_Mott tried to discredit him but couldn't get any real traction. It must have been distracting having her My Twinn Doll sitting next to her in brown just like "Trot" and being so emotional. Why be emotional now? When I heard his heart was beating when she slit his throat, it was over for me. There isn't anything Domestic "Geff" can say that will change my mind.

Sounds like I am glad I missed today. What is that big deal about Dr. Robert Geffner. I looked him up and did a little research on him, I didn't see anything so great. He has a few book that he has had published, some that he co wrote, Teaches at some off the wall college that I have never heard of. I did some research and found it is a accredited school but on further study found out it was not in the top 200 schools that offer Grad courses in the psychology. My goodness WVU is ahead of them by far. Didnt see anything outstanding about him.

Defense atty's like Dr Geffner

He is reportedly polished and convincing

His creds and decades of experience are legit and will impress the jury, regardless of University rankings, which they will not even think about

They will make note of DR DM's thin resumes and short tenure

Looks like he will be the last wit, befor final aurgumuents.

Great move on the Chessboard by Nurmi/Wilmont.

Jury could tilt in favor of abuse/domestic violence and then it's a hung jury or manslaughter.

JM will not be able to diminish his creds

After the dismissal of this juror today, more women could be on the panel. Dr Geff's expertise on DV very well may seal it with
several of them. Stay tuned that day. I'm sure that DR Dm will be avidly watching. He could very well debunk her findings and testing methods.

Brilliant timing on calling Dr Geff at this finaljuncture. Nurmi/Wilmont and Dr Geff, ready to conter every JM move, since he has showed his hand over and over again.

When I have time, I'd like to listen to Dr. Kevin Horn's original testimony. I didn't begin watching until about the time JAA was demonstrating her b.s. story about TVA lunging at her and the gun going off. It's total b.s. debunked by his autopsy. Does anyone think she maybe tried to dismember him but didn't have the necessary tools.

Free Willy was an idiot to try to go head to head with the medical examiner. Her little bachelor's and law degree are no match for his credentials and years of experience. It's pretty bad when the other attorney at YOUR table is amused with your ignorance.

She was trying to say a 25 caliber gun doesn't do much damage. My spouse said, "Let's test that theory." Apparently, someone wants to as she has been getting threats and she still acts like she is going to win. If by some miracle she does get JAA off, I hope she stalks JLW for the rest of her days. I think in JAA's pea brain, she thinks JLW is a friend. She doesn't realize she is just doing a job she is getting paid to do. She has no friends.

The defense has had JM running like a little topo gigo mouse the whole trial lol. Their game so far, albeit a bit underhanded, is on track to save Jodi's sweet life. Hey, they have to give her the best defense possible and are they ever. Unfortunately she confessed when she should have just kept quiet so she may still have to do a bit more time with a "manslaughter in the heat of" verdict..she must be so relieved to be seeing the end of this trial. What a tough go it's been for her especially when the only supporters she's had have been strangers who have heard about her dilemma and friends she's met in prison. I ain't sayin' she didn't kill the guy. She admitted it. But, he's dead, and we aren't so lets' get on with it. Like her more as a blonde though. She looks too mexican with her hair brown. Wonder if she'll go all beefy like her mother and aunt? They ain't pretty anymore and not that old neither. They look all used up.

Apparently, JAA may have gotten an idea from this movie.
Durst was painted as a monster who made his wife get rid of their baby.
Also, a man who had a lot of demons from his childhood but enough money and power to sidestep any trouble he got himself into. It appears he would make deals with people to get what he wanted out of them and then when they became a liability, they would end up dead.

In the clip, Durst's father says about his son's wife, "She'll never be one of us."
She got into medical school and was going to become a doctor. However, if she left her husband, she would get nothing. She tried to play hardball with the family and simply vanished.

A word of caution to all: Choose your seat mates wisely.

I understand what you had to say and agree with the spirit of it.
In the case of Jody's demure look and persona, she is very hot and appealing to men.
I have dated a few with her look and style in LA. Hell, I probably could have handled Jody and nothing bad would have happen.
She was not predisposed to kill Travis or anyone else, unlike many killers in our society. She needs to be convicted of the crime she committed, a low degree manslaughter.

You are Ok with me Rita. As to my post that you responded to, it is factual. I have met a few JA's in crazy LA. Her type love handsome clean cut white men. We are also attracted to her dmeure, buyt smoldering Latina look.

Latina's love deeper and can be jealous. I have had them tell me that their jealous nature, is proof of their deep love.

I had mentioned that I had attended some B&D parties in LA. JA loved the Dom nature of TA.
I could have easily handled her, if I wanted to.
It's an erotic sex game, even a lifestyle for some, also wrought with dire consequences. It was interesting, enjoyable, but ultimately was not my cup of tea. Also, dated main stream females, who wanted me to dominate them.

Many women fantasize about. It is a theme in film, novels and even fashion. Did you see 9 1/2 weeks, find it erotic or interesting?

LA is a fascinatig City to live in.
