Jodi Arias Nude Photos: Shown at Trial!

by at . Comments

It's been an interesting week in the Jodi Arias trial.

Nude photos of the murder defendant were displayed for the jury - and the live feed - as was a video in which she said she would welcome the death penalty.

If she killed Travis Alexander, that is.

"If I am found guilty, I won't have a life ... If I killed Travis, I would beg for the death penalty," Arias told Esteban Flores, a Mesa, Ariz., police detective, in a 2008 interview.

As for the Jodi Arias nude photos? Jurors were shown pigtailed Arias' breasts, as well as explicit front and rear angles of her genitalia (NSFW, after jump).

Photos of a nude Travis Alexander in bed were also shown.

It's unclear exactly why these were entered into evidence.

The photos were shown during testimony by Michael Melendez, a police department member who analyzed electronic devices collected during the investigation.

The images were broadcast on a live feed of the trial during a court recess; the network that showed the images has yet to offer an explanation for how or why.

Arias is accused of killing Alexander, her ex-boyfriend, more than four years ago. She allegedly stabbed him 26 times, slit his throat and shot him.

She pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense; previously, she had claimed she was not involved in his death whatsoever, later changing her account.

Here's one of the Jodi Arias photos in question:

Anyone who is paying attention to the trial knows the photos were entered into the trial because the camera was hidden in the washer. The photos were taken a few hours before the victim was killed & there are other photos that were shown on headline news of his body during the attack that were accidentaly taken.
