S6 Ep269: “Bad Behind Bars: Jodi Arias w/Special Guest Donavan Bering

In 2008, Travis Alexander was brutally murdered in his home in Mesa, Arizona.  His ex-girlfriend, Jodi Arias, was convicted of the slaying and was later sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.  

A new Lifetime Television movie tells the behind-the-scene story of Jodi’s life behind bars.  In this follow-up to one of Lifetime's most successful true crime dramas, JODI ARIAS: DIRTY LITTLE SECRET, we see a whole new side of Jodi and follow the story that has captivated the public for nearly a decade. 

In this episode, I speak with Donavan Bering, a cellmate of Jodi Arias’ who became her good friend and staunchest supporter - that is until she came to learn what kind of person Jodi really was and realized that her claims of innocence were all lies. 

Jodi Arias: Bad Behind Bars, produced for Lifetime by Cineflix Productions premieres Saturday, January 21 at 8/7c. 

You can listen to Once Upon a Crime’s in-depth coverage of the Jodi Arias case in a 2-part series from Season 1.  Listen to Episodes 43 and 44 on your favorite podcast app or listen on our website:
