PHOENIX - Former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods told ABC15 that the Jodi Arias case is "over” after watching her testimony on Thursday, as prosecutors poked holes in her story.
“Before, she said she doesn’t remember the stabbing,” said Woods. “Today, she admitted that, obviously, she’s the one who did it.”
Woods said when the trial started he thought it was “questionable” if the jury would recommend a death sentence for Arias. Now, after hearing the suspected murderer on the stand, he’s changed his mind.
“I think she may have succeeded in talking herself into the death penalty,” he said. “Her story makes no sense. It doesn’t match forensics. It doesn’t match common sense. It’s a preposterous story.”
