Emotions Change – Jodi Arias Update

For those of you not familiar with the case, Jodi Arias, 32, was being tried for the murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, which she claimed was self-defense.

Throughout her trial, Arias displayed poise, control and even some duping delight.  However, after months of lies and memory lapses, she has been found guilty of the first-degree murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander and is now revealing very different emotions.

  1. I see surprise when the verdit of guilty is stated (seemed to be more of a delay than I expected — but this might be just the processing of the message). Then it changes to sadness, which seems to intensify as the juror’s respond to questions.

  2. Håvard says:

    A moment of surprise, then sadness that she tries to control.

  3. Heather says:

    I saw instant “relief”…..then sadness….and some anxiety/fear possibly.

  4. Max Rivera says:

    Relief whe she heard the veredict, then anxiety for what’s about to come.

  5. Jeff says:

    Delayed surprise followed by sadness. The sadness intensifies with each resounding “yes”. I would presume this sadness increases as she realizes there is less and less chance of a juror saying “no”.

  6. These are all great observations.

    When the gulity verdict is read at 0:13 a few seconds pass before she reacts with an expression of sadness at 0:18. Her sadness is more visible around 0:20 when they mention “premediatated” and continues to increase especially at 0:46 when the third juor repsonds with “yes”.

    However, it seems she still is trying to maintain control over her emotions thorughout the guilty verdict.
