911 Audio, Crime Scene Photos Revealed in Trial of AZ Woman Charged With Shooting Her Boyfriend and Stabbing Him Nearly 30 Times

Then, there were these events that unfolded in the shower where she dropped the camera and that put her jealous, abusive, misogynistic boyfriend into a rage where he attacked her.”

    Fred Tecce thinks the defense has a tough road ahead of them, especially given the fact that Arias presented several different versions of her story. “Unfortunately, these pesky little things called facts are going to get in the way of her defense. One, the evidence will come out that he tried to break up with her and tried to end it…”
