Prosecutor Says Juror in Jodi Arias Murder Trial Fell In Love With the Defendant

By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. Editor At Large

In a book due out in January, one of the prosecutors in the case claims that a juror in the Jodi Arias murder trial actually fell in love with Arias during the course of the proceedings. Prosecutor Juan Martinez makes the startling charge in his book Conviction: The Untold Story of Putting Jodi Arias Behind Bars, which is due out in January.

While Martinez does not actually identify the juror in his book, an alternate juror who served at the trial appears to have no reservations about either who she thinks it is, or about publicly naming him. According to Tara Harris Kelley, the juror who was madly in love with the convicted killer was none other than the jury foreman himself, 71-year-old Bill Zervakos.

According to Kelley, when she and Zervakos would sometimes go to lunch during the trial, he would tell her how young and attractive he thought Arias was, and that, in his opinion, no one who fit that profile could do what Arias was accused of.

For his part, Zervakos has vehemently denied that he had any sort of crush on Arias. Furthermore, he has gone on record to say that he never liked prosecutor Martinez, and sees the book as just a way for the attorney to profit from the high-profile case.
