Appeals Court Rejects Bid by Jodi Arias

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

Jodi Arias’ legal woes continue as her latest attempt to bar the public from viewing the opening brief in her appeal case was rejected.

The Arizona Court of Appeals recently issued the rejection, just a few months after a similar unsuccessful attempt in late May. Arias has been trying to appeal her murder conviction and life sentence in the 2008 slaying of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.

The most recent ruling says Arias didn’t prove that releasing the brief would cause specific harm.

Prosecutors allege Arias attacked Alexander after he tried to end their love affair and arranged a vacation to Mexico with another woman.

Arias has admitted to killing Alexander but maintains she acted in self-defense after he attacked her.

I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
