Murder suspect Jodi Arias, in Tweets sent out through a friend, admitted that she’s contemplated suicide and would have accepted a plea deal “years ago.”
Also, she’s not a big fan of Nancy Grace.
After jurors in the first-degree murder trial deliberated for their first full day on Monday, the 32-year-old, via her friend, sent out a series of Tweets:
“I would have signed a plea years ago to avoid this disaster, but I was refused a plea as the State and the family refused to settle,” Arias lamented.
“My only other option was suicide and, well …”
The accused murderer of Travis Alexander also addressed the topic of her commissary behind bars, and took a shot at a certain outspoken TV pundit:
“N. DisGrace has set back the cause of all women who have survived domestic violence. Her circus makes a mockery of something very serious.”
As has been widely reported, prosecutors claim Arias, a waitress/photographer, brutally killed former lover Alexander in a jealous rage on June 4, 2008.
She is accused of cutting his throat, stabbing him in the heart repeatedly and shooting him in the head … which she claims was all an act of self-defense.
Jodi Arias said she was protecting herself from Alexander, who had subjected her to bouts of domestic violence in their relationship and had no choice.
She has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder. If convicted, she could face the death penalty or life in prison. Jury deliberations continue Tuesday.
