Jurors in the Jodi Arias murder trial heard a bold statement Thursday that the accused femme fatale made during a television interview.
"No jury is going to convict me ... because I'm innocent and you can mark my words on that one -- no jury will convict me," Arias told the TV show "Inside Edition."
The recording, which was made in 2008, after Arias was indicted for murdering her ex-boyfriend, was played in Maricopa County County Superior Court in Arizona on Thursday, on day five of Arias' murder trial.
"I understand all the evidence is really compelling," Arias said in the interview. She added, "I've never even shot a gun. That's heinous. I can't imagine slitting anyone's throat."
Arias, a 32-year-old photographer, is accused of shooting her lover, Travis Alexander, in the face, stabbing him 27 times and slitting his throat from ear to ear in the shower of his Mesa, Ariz., apartment on June 4, 2008.
Arias has pleaded not guilty to murder, claiming she killed Alexander in self-defense. If convicted, she faces the death penalty.
Earlier on Thursday, Nathaniel Mendes, a former detective with the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office in Calif., testified that there is no restaurant called Margaritaville in Yreka, California.
