Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial for some reason I’m not seeing the ? But it was hard listening to the sex talk over and over and Nurmi liked to talk #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 Did you find Nurmi very hard to listen to with all the sex talk day after day after day? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial would have made it ALL Better!Valerie just emailed me And said we can’t make fun of her water and she wants her mug! #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 How nice would it have been to drink court water out of a sweet WAT mug instead of those tiny styrofoam shot cups? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial wow that’s a hard one!! Probably the camera! Showed a timeline of how quickly things happened! #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 What was the most damning piece of evidence against Jodi? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial no! I feel she is an advocate and truly believed Jodi was abused! However there was NO proof only her word #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 Did you think Alyce’s analysis of domestic abuse applied to Jodi? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial I believed it! There was never interaction b/w him and Jodi at the table! He never looked happy by her #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 What did u think of Kirk Nurmi when he said “9 days out of 10 I don’t like Jodi Arias” #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial I think those parent interrogation videos could have been a game changer! Shows they weren’t shocked she did it #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 Is there anything that your have heard or seen since trial has ended that stands out to you as a game changer? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial I wish!! We did puzzles , played UNO, cribbage, and that’s about it lol!

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 Did the juror room have billiards, darts, xbox with a 60 inch screen and a fireplace as I envisioned it having? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial I gave her the benefit of the doubt, but when she sat up there and lied constantly, it was hard to believe she did #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 great multi tweet answer Tara! Very twitter savvy. In your mind, does Jodi have any redeeming qualities? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial I believe on May 26, Travis was trying to break it off completely with Jodi! She got mad and threatened him with the sex tape! He started calling her those names b/c he thought if he did she would finally leave him alone, especially when he said u r the worst thing that ever happened to me! He was hoping that would make her stop! It only made her really mad knowing he no longer wanted her! She couldn’t take it! She planned the burglary and started planning his death!She wanted to make sure she was the last he ever had sexually!She wanted that power of knowing she was his last

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 Do you want to tell us more about your theory now? Take a few tweets and expand upon it if you would like. #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial it’s part of my theory! I believe he found out about the sex tape and she threatened to blackmail him! #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 What is your opinion of that last text sent by Travis where he was so angry? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial May 26, 2008!

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 When do you think the the premeditation began? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial can’t say that it would have! I believe the people that voted life did so b/c the felt some sort of abuse happened! #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 If prosecution was able to prove that Jodi slashed Travis’ tires, how would that have changed the jury’s perspective? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial We had talked before about putting names in a hat and picking that way but idk if that is how they did it! #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 How was the foreman chosen? Was he elected, or did he volunteer? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial no!!! I thought at times he said some mean things but I never thought she was abused! #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 Did you believe there was any abuse by Travis, either emotional or physical? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial out of 375 people..no way!!However the day of selections I had a feeling I would b/c I was the youngest female there #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
@tarakelley320 Did you think in your wildest dreams that you would be chosen for this jury? #17WAT

Tara Kelley @tarakelley320
@WildAboutTrial I had to drink it once after forgetting my water:/ it is disgusting!!!! #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
Soo @tarakelley320 How tasty is that tasty court water after all? I noticed it was getting huge pours. #17WAT

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial
I would like to thank @tarakelley320, Juror 17, aka The Manicurist from the #JodiArias trial for joining in this twinterview today.

Another Juror Speaks

Alternate juror #17, now identified as Tara Kelley is speaking out via Twitter. She was the juror who asked: “After all the lies you have told why should we believe you now?” She said: “I really wanted to see if she could answer that with a good response.” She also said that she asked about 75 questions and all of the ones about ‘No jury will convict me’ were hers. She mentions she still had to go to court when she had migraines, a reference to Jodi canceling court for her migraines.

With regard to the toughness of the prosecutor she said: “…I loved Juan!!! I knew he was very passionate for the Alexander family. His reaction to the hung jury said it all. He was Travis’ voice.” About Jodi’s comment that the jury ‘betrayed’ her: “What a bunch of crap! Of course she feels betrayed, she really thought we were all fooled by her!” When asked about the comments from the foreman: “I am very disgusted with what our ‘foreman’ has said! Please know that we didn’t all feel this way!!!”

Tara is scheduled to be on the Dr. Drew show Tuesday and a Twitter interview with Wild About Trial on Wednesday.

Jodi Speaks-Her First Interview

About 20 minutes after the verdict Jodi Arias met with ‘MyFoxPhoenix’s Troy Hayden. He said she was ‘shaken’ and crying. She said she didn’t have a direct message for the jury but that she had prayed for them. When asked her response when the verdict was read she said: “I think I just went blank.” She also mentioned being overwhelmed and having to take it one day at a time. She said that there was ‘no pre-meditation on my part’ but that she could see the felony murder because of ‘how the law was written’. When Troy mentioned the jurors not believing her story she said she could understand as she had told lies. She reiterated that she would prefer the death penalty because ‘The worst outcome for me would be natural life…longevity runs in my family.’ She also said she hopes Travis’ family has ‘greater peace.’ Another part of this interview is coming up at 5:30–watch the live stream at:
