PHOENIX (CBS5) - Artwork supposedly created by accused murderer Jodi Arias is up for auction on eBay by her supporters in an effort to help raise money for her family's travel expenses and other fees, according to the auction listings.
Arias is on trial in Phoenix, accused of shooting her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in the face, stabbing him 27 times and slitting his throat. State prosecutors rested their case Thursday morning.
Seven of Arias' drawings have sold on the online auction website since Jan. 10.
Currently, there are two active listings for her artwork being sold by "0817soldierofchrist." One is a drawing of an unidentified model with a bid of $335 and the other is a drawing of Grace Kelly with a bid of $300. The auctions for those two drawings end Monday afternoon.
The seller said the drawing of Kelly is one of three 1950s collection drawings by Arias. The posting said two more pieces in the collection, a drawing of Frank Sinatra and another of Lucille Ball, will be listed in the future.
The artwork is drawn with colored pencils on cardboard.
The trial is scheduled to resume at 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 29, according to a Maricopa County Superior Court representative.
Arias admitted to killing Alexander but claims it was in self-defense after he attacked her.
Prosecutors say she drove to Mesa in a jealous rage and murdered him.
