    State vs Arias Aggravation Phase

    The defense and prosecution presented opposing arguments about whether Arias killed Travis Alexander in an "especially heinous, cruel or depraved manner." Vote yes or no. Provide your argument/opinion and the time it will take the jury to arrive at a decision.

    I predicted 10-30 minutes in the other thread. And at this point its already been an hour. My official prediction is now 2 hrs of deliberations (within the next hour)

    and they will vote Yes to the cruelty

    It was cruel just by the fact that she led him on sexually earlier in the day, took pics of him like it was harmless fun, then slaughtered him

    Yes, verdict by 2:30PM AZ time. Especially cruel because of the sink/mirror, 2 long minutes, and being face up when she slit his throat. The pain of the stab wounds is enough for me, but the previous factors had a huge impact on me, and hopefully the Jury feels the same.

    Gotta be cruel, because it just is!

    Verdict will be read tomorrow morning, but they will decide before the end of the day today.

    Yes.

    Because it was overkill, because she stabbed him 29 times and slit his throat. Because she killed him 3 different ways.

    I say 3pm.

    Verdict 2.45. Cruelty proven. A child could figure out that this was savage anger and extreme cruelty. Thanks for creating the thread, Metis.

    Verdict, 3 pm AZ time; extreme cruelty proven. The trickery she used to get him in a helpless position, the information-gathering she must have done be able to place the heart wound at just the right place and depth, the deep, no-hesitation-marks neck slice, the gratuitous gunshot to his forehead. The ferocity of the attack, the overkill...her defiant lack of remorse. Extreme cruelty.

    Absolutely YES to cruelty, and I am guessing 4:07 AZ time.
