Jodi is still on trial for the murder of her former boyfriend Travis Alexander in 2008, but she says that she has fond memories of him and recalls a time he helped her with a broken finger.

Jodi Arias recently admitted that she killed Travis Alexander out of self-defense, but that things weren’t always so bad in their relationship. Jodi, 32, took the stand again on March 4, in the murder trial of her deceased boyfriend and she bizarrely had very nice things to say about the man she killed.

Jodi Takes The Stand & Recalls Better Times Before Death

Jodi was answering questions from her defense attorney Kirk Nurmi in which he was trying to prove that she killed Travis in self-defense. But the questioning took a turn when she said that after Travis kicked her in January 2008 and broke her finger — he actually helped make a splint for her and “tenderly” cared for her.

“It sounds weird but it was kind of endearing,” she explains. “He was very tender with it, he was being very careful. He did what he could to right what he had wronged … that meant a lot. The moment was endearing, it seemed very tender, he was very sincere. When I got home I took it off and cried, and he made another one for me later. At the moment that he made it he seemed very gentle with it.”

Jodi claims that Travis made her feel like a “prostitute” and admits that she killed him in June of 2008. Jodi stabbed him 29 times, slit his throat, and shot him.

Jodi also admitted that she still loves her dead boyfriend, and that she loved him right up until his death.
