A FOX 10 EXCLUSIVE

PHOENIX (KSAZ) -- "She's very dangerous.. very dangerous."

Cassandra Collins says she knows Jodi Arias well.

FOX 10 confirmed the two shared a small two bunk cell with Arias before the trial started feels Arias is still dangerous behind bars.

Collins claims Arias threatened prosecutor Juan Martinez, saying if she got the death penalty, she would get revenge against him.

"She said that if she was given the death sentence.. she wanted to get her revenge... she knows inmates on the outs to do a mafia bow tie.. yeah. Cut his throat.."

Does she think Arias was threatening Martinez's life?

"Yes, I do.  I really think she would try to hurt someone."

Collins says Arias had a way with her fellow inmates.

I saw it first hand when I visited her jail pod back in January.  All of her cellmates made up signs saying "Jodi is innocent" and "free Jodi."

"She manipulates.. tried to manipulate every inmate there.. and tries to control how they think about her case.  She'll try to suffocate you with her version and her side.  When I got released out, I was like thank you God I got delivered out of hell," said Collins.

Collins also says Arias had a strange curiosity about Martinez.

"She asked me questions like why doesn't Juan Martinez love me?  And I'm like, love you?  He's your prosecutor.. he's there to prosecute you for a crime.. and I'm like why doesn't he love you?"

Was she serious?

"Yeah.. she was serious.. why doesn't Juan Martinez love me?  She's out of her freakin' mind."

Collins says she came forward with her story because she is worried about Martinez's safety.

"He need to get good security staff around him to make sure she can't get anybody on the outs to solicit something.. to harm him or to hurt him... She's very dangerous.. very dangerous."

The Maricopa County Attorney's Office says it is looking into these claims.  And I spoke to Arias' defense attorney, Jennifer Wilmott, who said she couldn't comment on what Collins said, but the defense team will be looking into the claims as well.

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.
