There have been a few tidbits of news about the Jodi Arias case. At a recent hearing, she asked for a delay in the case because one of her attorneys, Kirk Nurmi, wanted off the case. Their relationship has been described as being severely “fractured.”
Juan Martinez vehemently argued against the delay, but no ruling was made.
Since the hearing, the judge has ruled against Kirk Nurmi’s millionth time trying to get off the case. Apparently, he will be there for the trial.
I don’t doubt that Kirk Nurmi wants off the case, but I also wonder if this issue could be used in an appeal, perhaps to argue that she had incompetent legal representation. Any lawyers know the answer to that question?
It’s also unclear whether she will serve as her own attorney. In the recent hearing, Jodi said that she no longer wanted to be her own attorney and that Jennifer Willmot will be taking over. It’s not clear whether that is official, especially with her other attorney constantly attempting to be removed from the case.
Other new information involves Jodi’s list of witnesses. She is apparently added Sky and Chris Hughes to her witness list. If you recall, this couple was very good friends with Travis Alexander. They hung out with Jodi and Travis, but eventually, grew weary of Jodi.
The couple eventually became frightened of Jodi and no longer wanted her in their home.
Stay tuned. I’m sure there’ll be much more news to follow in this never-ending Jodi drama.
