Jodi Arias sentencing retrial: prosecution rests its case

It is clear the Jodi Arias sentencing retrial is not going to end anytime soon; it is moving in fits and starts. 

There were two witnesses that did testify Thursday. 

Prosecutor Juan Martinez called Damian Ashdown to the witness stand. He said his 9-year-old daughter had received an e-mail from Travis Alexander. The defense team may have thought this meant some inappropriate contact with Alexander, but through questioning it came out the e-mail was an invitation for the daughter to work with Alexander's Pre-Paid Legal Services business.

Computer expert Lonnie Dworkin took the stand, he testified for the defense during the first trial, and now the prosecutor wanted to question him about the SpyBot computer protection program Travis had among other things.

The defense then asked Dworkin about his examination of Travis's laptop. He said he found fragments of porn videos on it, long and clear enough to watch. 

If prosecutors wanted to erase any connection between Travis Alexander and computer pornography, it didn't happen.

Court resumes next Wednesday; the judge told the jury there may be testimony as late as February 26.
