JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL, HOST: Breaking news. We’ve got brand-new information just in on Jodi Arias and why court was suddenly called off. And it`s not just because Jodi has a migraine. There are more complaints, in fact.
Plus, controversy tonight over prosecutor Juan Martinez signing autographs and stopping for photo-ops. He’s turned into a local superstar with his very own fan base. But is he celebrating too soon? Is this appropriate, or not?
VELEZ-MITCHELL (voice-over): Tonight, why does the Jodi Arias trial come to a screeching halt, with today’s session mysteriously and suddenly canceled this afternoon? Is Jodi sick, or is she faking it to push back judgment day? We’ve seen her popping pills in court. Is that a clue? Or could Jodi be freaking out knowing she’s on her last witness? We’ll debate it with my expert panel.
Plus, new controversy over prosecutor Juan Martinez. He`s swarmed by fans, posing for pictures and signing autographs. But should he just say “no” until the verdict’s in? I’m taking your calls.
JEAN CASAREZ, CORRESPONDENT, TRUTV`S “IN SESSION”: I heard Jennifer Willmott, after she poured a glass of water for Jodi, handed it to Jodi and said to the sheriff’s deputy, “Be sure she takes her medication.”
DR. RICHARD SAMUELS, PSYCHOLOGIST: At various times she was on a tranquilizer, was on an antidepressant.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Is Ms. Arias taking medication?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She takes her medication.
