Today -- areas testifies once again in her own defense.
Yesterday she detailed the minutes leading up to the death of her lover -- -- Travis Alexander in 2008.
-- areas admits she killed Alexander but claims it was self defense.
Area said Alexander threw a fit because she scratched a CD.
Then twisted her arm and got sexually aggressive with her before the couple took explicit photographs of each other.
Yesterday areas legal team tried to dismiss the prosecution's claim she came out -- home.
With the intent to kill him listen to this exchange with her lawyer.
When you try to -- and his home.
Did -- have.
Did you have a night but you -- saucer and here.
On his computer city is this was -- to teach she didn't know.
Did you have the expectation.
One -- That it's part of the activity would be to process terms yes.
Did you have that impression.
Because it was just I think that it's pretty obvious there was -- another season.
Not that it's.
Well -- -- areas is convicted she faces the death penalty but let's talk about this case with Fox News contributor Vicky ward who is outside the courthouse in Phoenix.
-- Schofield is a social media strategist who has attended every day of this trial.
-- you're getting -- pictures drawn here I mean she's saying yeah I wanted to have a relationship with him.
But the testimony on the stand is all about what a monster he was is that working for the jury.
Well you know it's suddenly got -- attention John -- What's coming out from daddy Gary S on the stand AA is the picture ever really messed up relationship.
This couple -- cop but they can't let each had to go.
-- she claims he says terrible things to happen.
She said yes today he is -- was like -- up clay even when she was a thousand miles away.
And yet we didn't outlets to back to a ping flashing in -- they just can't let -- yesterday.
When she joked about it at the scene inside try to -- on his house he's so this tension between them a couple of angry exasperation.
And yet I'm able to get to that does each -- And kinsey you've written about that 82000.
Emails passed between this couple in five months.
Right and that's on top of 151000.
Text messages exchanged between the -- I mean they have time to do anything else.
Exactly had happened fairway confer prepaid legal and and then from Chile is I don't know and I don't understand now they have so much time to spends.
Fixating on each other but the relationship was toxic to the both of them but especially Travis Alexander.
Well and obviously he's the one who wound up dead what about a -- you this this you know trying to go after him and paint him as well they've talked about.
If she's talked about him being up had to file.
She has John not at I think it's important to remember she's the -- pass and he's told him being about that being a head of she's yeah anyone.
Who says she still any evidence since that's.
And that says the jury it's it's gonna come down to whether or not the Jerry -- has story.
The I'm sure that his family has.
Been pretty disturbed to hear some of -- you know on the read some of the writings that he exchanged with her and so forth but -- There's absolutely no evidence other than her own testimony.
That he was in -- that kind of thing right.
Absolutely and as somebody that has set in the courtroom.
At first she was delicate she was beautiful I wanted to be on her side.
But as she started verbally vomiting all of these blatant lies about this young man.
I decided I didn't like her I I turned against her.
And I think that that's what the jury's going to do because I think that the jury is smarter than that and I think that they're going to see all of these inconsistencies in her stories.
And realize that she's just trying to save her life right now so she's gonna throw everything she possibly can at the wall and see what sticks.
Vicki she's been on the stand for more than a week now testifying in her own defense that.
Highly unusual in a death penalty case -- -- the prosecution.
Hasn't even really had a whack at her yet it almost seems to me it's like you know Stockholm syndrome.
By locking -- with the jury and and trying to get some sympathy for her just because.
She's in their faces every day for more than a week.
You know -- flight that John and yes today was very -- staying.
The jury and everyone Alice sat on the edges of ST let me finally got sick of your last take amendments.
That take -- up right.
To what she's gonna tell us about today which is how the -- up pats have a study's -- -- pace but for the rest -- -- Fleming had yet more.
Discussion of this very tour should complicated relationship I'm not -- Britney not see.
Picture is graphic picture this people are actually -- it in -- looking tie at sometimes that looking down.
And it's -- like -- -- saturation point.
Yeah and speaking of looking kinsey you say you've made eye contact whisper in the courtroom tell us about I had some really -- and writings.
Yes I mean she's a beautiful girl like I said she's got these beautiful brown eyes but when I locked eyes with her in the courtroom I felt fear because she's so avoid an -- -- hollow look at it it really is kind of scary.
And into making his points.
We are kind of exhausted and I think as a conservative state Arizona that when you.
Throw all of these salacious things at this Jerry I think if -- -- it will be a little resentful of what they're having to sit through because you know it does seem like it's inappropriate and unnecessary.
Mostly male jury as I understand -- and some of them elderly they're not receiving a lot of this of salacious stuff very well kinsey Schofield Micky ward.
Thank you both very much.
