Prosecutors in the murder trial of Jodi Arias have displayed a grisly photograph they say was accidentally taken as she dragged her ex-lover’s body through his home after stabbing him 27 times.
The dark image apparently depicts the back of Travis Alexander’s head with his arm raised as blood trickles down his neck. A large dark obstruction in the foreground of the picture is a leg in sweatpants, the jury in Phoenix heard.
The prosecution alleges the picture was taken as Arias, who they say flew into a rage after learning her ex-boyfriend wanted to date someone else, dragged Alexander’s body through his Mesa, Arizona home. The image was apparently snapped as a camera was dropped.

They claim Arias repeatedly stabbed Alexander in his shower before dragging him to his bedroom and slicing his throat. She then allegedly took him back to the bathroom to shoot him in the head.
Two friends found his body in the shower on June 9, 2008, five days after he was killed.
