New details revealed in burglary of Arias trial psychologist

PHOENIX -

During the Jodi Arias trial, a laptop was stolen from a psychologist who testified.

According to the police report, the psychologist was frantic when she got home and realized there was a burglary.

She said she had notes relating to the trial on the laptop, that wasn't password protected.

Exclusive video shows Dr. Janeen Demarte outside her house talking with investigators after a laptop and some jewelry were stolen from her home on February 6.

Demarte, the state's psychologist in the Jodi Arias case, told investigators the laptop had notes pertaining to the case, but did not say what specifically.

According to the police report, there were no signs of forced entry to the home.

Police say the master bedroom door was closed but unlocked when they arrived.

Demarte could not tell them if any of her keys were missing.

The burglary happened around 9:30 a.m. on a Wednesday. The burglar alarm notified police.

Neighbors say they didn't see or hear anything. Police even questioned a transient sleeping in nearby bushes, who said he didn't see or hear anything.

They also looked at surveillance video from a school across the street, but said it did not show the crime scene.

"I would not call myself an expert in domestic violence specifically," said Demarte.

Demarte, a clinical psychologist, testified in April and said she did not believe Arias was abused by the boyfriend she killed and did not suffer from post traumatic syndrome as the defense alleged. Instead, she feels arias has a borderline personality disorder.

The police report did not indicate if investigators felt the burglary was random or if it had to do with the Arias case.

Although, they pointed out the burglar took the laptop, but didn't take the diamond earrings sitting out or cash in a drawer.

Crime scene specialists processed the scene.

The report shows they sent at least one fingerprint to the crime lab to be analyzed.

As far as we know, there have been no arrests in the case.

FOX 10 tried contacting Demarte to see if the theft hindered the case or her testimony in any way, but haven't heard back.
