Travis Alexander

The show, which will air at 9 p.m. on Phoenix’s KPHO (Channel 5), will tell the story of the death of Travis Alexander, 29, who was found shot in the head and stabbed 27 times in the shower of his Mesa home at 11428 E. Queensborough Ave. on June 9, 2008, according to Mesa police.

Jodi Arias

Alexander’s girlfriend, Jodi Arias, 30, who was apprehended by authorities in California soon after Alexander’s body was discovered, has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with Alexander’s death, but she has maintained her innocence.

Images retrieved from the digital camera’s memory card showed nude pictures of Arias on Alexander’s bed and of him in the shower before showing Alexander bleeding heavily in the shower, according to police.

Police also said a bloody left-palm print on Alexander’s wall contained Arias’ DNA.

A hearing for Arias is scheduled in Maricopa County Superior Court on March 25, according to court records.
