Description

On January 2, 2013, the murder trial of Jodi Arias began, setting off a national obsession with Jodi's story of sex, lies, and murder. Jodi Arias became a household name overnight when she was charged with the heinous murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. Travis was found dead in his shower, with approximately thirty stab wounds, his throat slit, and a bullet hole in his forehead.  From nightly news specials covering every moment of the trial to CNN Headline News featuring daily updates on the case, the media circus only fueled the hunger of the public to learn more about this twisted tale. Associated Press reporters Brian Skoloff and Josh Hoffner were there covering every moment of the court case. Killer Girlfriend provides the first comprehensive account of the case, from the moment Jodi and Travis met, through the killing, her arrest, the four-month trial, and ending, finally, with the verdict.
