Closing arguments haven’t even wrapped up yet, and already Hollywood has its Jodi Arias – Lost actress Tania Raymonde, who shows off her transformation into the notorious murder defendant.
Raymonde, 25, stars opposite Jesse Lee Soffer (playing lover-victim Travis Alexander) in Lifetime’s Dirty Little Secret, which is still being written as real-life events unfold.
In a sensational case featuring graphic testimony about kinky sex and violence, Arias, 32, has been on trial in an Arizona court for allegedly stabbing Alexander 27 times in a shower in 2008. If convicted, she faces the death penalty.
Dramatic summations began Thursday with prosecutor Juan Martinez pounding on a table to argue that Arias is a manipulative liar and a killer.
“It’s like a field of lies that has sprouted up around her as she sat on the witness stand,” Martinez said of Arias, who previously spent 18 days testifying. “Every time she spat something out, another lie.”
