On May 8, 2013 Jodi Arias was convicted killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in an "especially cruel" manner, which carries a possible death sentence. Jodi Arias' lawyers want the court to set aside the earlier determination that Travis Alexander's killing was done in an "especially cruel" manner. This was the aggravating factor that the State of Arizona required for the prosecution to pursue the death penalty. Earlier this month, Judge Sherry Stephens denied the motion. The death penalty is still an option.
Jodi Arias's cellmate came forward to say she thinks Jodi Arias is "dangerous" behind bars. The cellmate claims Jodi Arias threatened to get revenge on prosecutor Juan Martinez by having his throat cut, the same way Travis Alexander was killed.
Cassandra Collins shared a cell with Jodi Arias in the Estrella jail before the trial began. The cellmate told FOX 10 in Arizona that Arias is very manipulative, "She's very dangerous.. very dangerous." Collins said about Travis Alexander's killer.
Arias took to Twitter to taunt the prosecutor during the trial. Cassandra Collins claims Arias threatened Martinez before her conviction of first degree murder. Collins says "She said that if she was given the death sentence ... she wanted to get her revenge... she knows inmates on the outs to do a mafia bow tie.. yeah. Cut his throat.."
When FOX 10's Troy Hayden asked if Collins believed Arias was threatening the prosecutor's life she answered ""Yes, I do. I really think she would try to hurt someone."
Jodi Arias' cellmate said about Martinez "He need(s) to get good security staff around him to make sure she can't get anybody on the outs(ide) to solicit something -- to harm him or to hurt him. She's very dangerous -- very dangerous."
Collins went on to say that Arias tried to "manipulate" other inmates into believing her side of the story. Collins said all the cellmates had signs reading, "Jodi is innocent" and "Free Jodi" when she visited her jail area in January.
The Maricopa County Attorney's Office told said it was looking into Arias' cellmate's claims.
