PHOENIX - For the first time, we heard the 911 call made by friends when they found the body of Travis Alexander in June 2008.
Jodi Arias is currently on trial, accused of brutally murdering Alexander, allegedly cutting his throat and shooting him in the head.
Friends had come to Alexander's home to check on him and discovered him dead in the shower with blood everywhere.
"Our friend is dead at his home. We hadn't heard from him in a while and came to check on him. We think he is dead," they are heard saying on the 911 call.
His roommate went to check on him and said, "There is blood everywhere."
In Thursday's trial, Arias' defense team brought up a French maid outfit. Her defense team said Alexander paid Arias to clean his home and wanted her to wear a similar outfit when she did.
That plays into the defense strategy of showing him as an abusive, sex-crazed man who treated Arias as a sex slave and that she killed him in self-defense.
The trial will resume on Tuesday.
