    Im settling in for a long I watched for a really long time yesterday but I heard they testified yesterday till midnight or so. Wow.

    I think the Judge wants the lawyers to both get their closing arguments done today so they can get the case to the jury tomorrow. Can we say verdict watch? My twitter will be back on tomorrow!

    My local newspaper has been following it blow by blow because apparently Arias lived in the area for a time. From what I've read about the tawdry facts, and some news footage, it's has all the makings riveting TV.

    I have been riveted since day one. I have missed a few hours here and there but then I catch up in the evenings. I listened to the entire sex tape online on HLN's website. That was some mighty good piece of porno. She should be nominated for whatever award sex stars get.

    I thought Mr. Martinez did an awesome job today with the closing statement. I have no clue how the defense can come close to hoping to save her. I dont think there is any saving her. I loved it when he said "if she did it one way it is premeditated murder and if she used his gun and took it with her like she says, well that is burglary and qualifies as felony murder!" Oh he has her going and it.

    I cant wait till it goes to the jury and she gets fried.

    I've been glued to it since the beginning. I'm a trial junkie, think I missed my calling somewhere. Based on the evidence, she deserves the needle. Mr. Martinez has done a great job proving it. I applaud Jennifer Willmott for doing the best she could, Arias has no reason to complain about her defense. How do you defend someone like that? I heard that Nermy is doing the closing, big mistake in my humble opinion. Maybe if Travis had said yes to taking her to Cancun, it would have at least bought him some time. So so sad.

    Nermi looks so disgusting. He is always slouched over in his chair looking so smug with his face all puckered up like he is fantasizing about those sex tapes. I cant imagine him doing well. Even Willmont didnt do that well.

    Their witnesses were pretty much jokes. Of course I guess you have to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find someone to defend the undefendable. I was so outraged at that first psychologist they put on and then when they brought on that neuropsychologist on Wednesday for the Sir rebuttal...omg..I lost all respect for not only them but the neuropsychologist field in general. I have had two bad experiences now and now I am not impressed. I mean please, one tried to say rough sex (consenting) could give you ptsd, and he also claimed that no one could ever forget something you had already remembered for any reason. Uhhh, Im living proof you can.

    Then the neuropsychologist came in to take up a ton of everyone's time on the sir rebuttal and almost sounded like he was smart and new things that would throw doubt on what the prosecutions psychologist had said about all the tests she had given to Arias and how she interpreted them. Then we find out when the prosecution cross exams him that he is a hired gun that has been sanctioned by courts all over the country for his testimony. He basically makes himself sound important as hell and swings his testimony towards whichever side he is hired by. If they want a certain diagnosis, they get it. He testifies exactly to what he is wanted to say. He did a good job until Martinez found all his dirty little secrets. Then he was reduced to jelly.

    I watch this as soon as I get home from work until bedtime, then I watch at 4 am catching up on everything. It's an obsession, I wish I could go back in time and have a career in law enforcement as well. Martinez did a great job yesterday, I can't imagine what the defence can possibly say to refute any of that. All those defence witnesses were a total joke. Martinez is the best.
