Jodi Arias Trial: Prosecutor Juan Martinez's "Meltdown" With Murder Suspect; Plus, KY or Baby Oil?
The banter kept going on like that as courtroom watchers and jury members watched in disbelief.
Kirk Numri, Arias' taxpayer-funded attorney, eventually mumbles an objection, which Stephens overrules. She's letting this happen, so she wants to see how it will end up.
And so it keeps going.
Returning to a phrase familiar during the three days of cross-examination, Martinez asks Arias why she can't remember what she "just said."
Arias let's him have it: "I think i'm more focused on your posture and your tone and your anger, and so its hard to process the questions."
Martinez answers by referring to himself in third person. "So, the answer is it's again the prosecutor's fault because you perceive him to be angry, right?"
"It's not your fault."
"Well, I'm, uh -- is somebody asking you whose fault it is?"
"You did." Arias answers quickly.
"Well, you seem to be pointing it at the prosecutor, right?" is Martinez's comeback. "So you believe the reason you can't be effective on the witness stand is because somebody is asking questions you don't like?"
"I think that was a compound question," Arias retorts, playing lawyer.
At about 46:10, as the argument winds on, Martinez walks to the defense side of the courtroom, leans on the defense lectern and asks Arias sarcastically if she'd be more comfortable if he asked questions from that spot. Numri raises an objection and asks Judge Stephens if they can approach the bench to prevent Martinez from doing the same thing "over and over" again.
Definitely some weird court moments.
But the weirdest was yet to come. After lunch, the Arias trial lived up to its reputation as a smut-fest, with talk galore of "jizz" on Arias' face, the anal sex she'd had with multiple partners including Alexander, Mormon views of oral sex, and the benefits of using KY for anal sex rather than baby oil.
The dirtiest stuff comes in the last third or so of croakerqueen's "Part 2" video from today, embedded below. Not for kids.
Overall, Martinez was actually very effective today in deconstructing Arias' claims that Alexander had made her feel like a "prostitute" and a "used piece of toilet paper." The evidence showed Arias was enjoying her sexual relationship with Alexander and had been kinky with other guys.
