Savage Killing, Sex At Heart Of Woman’s Murder Trial

PHOENIX (January 8, 2013)--Photographs presented during the murder trial of Jodi Arias, an Arizona woman charged with killing her former boyfriend, show a chilling portrait of sex and death.

There's a nude Arias on Travis Alexander's bed, a naked Alexander in the shower and an image of Alexander after he was stabbed and shot in the head with his throat slit.

Other evidence also has stacked up since the June 2008 attack in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa including a bloody palm print, conflicting stories and, finally, a confession.

That evidence is being presented this week at a trial dominated by stories of sex and jealousy.

Arias admits that she killed Alexander, but claims it was self-defense.

Prosecutors say she planned the attack.

She could become the fourth woman on Arizona's death row if convicted.
