PHOENIX (AP) - Jodi Arias has returned to the witness stand in the Phoenix death penalty case against her after a prosecutor concluded his cross-examination last week.
The 32-year-old is charged in the June 2008 killing of her lover in his suburban Phoenix home. She says it was self-defense, but police say she planned the attack on Travis Alexander in a jealous rage. Arias initially told authorities she had nothing to do with Alexander's death, then blamed it on masked intruders before settling on self-defense.
Prosecutor Juan Martinez concluded his cross-examination of Arias on Thursday after hammering her over repeated lies. Authorities are working toward a first-degree murder conviction in order to try for a death sentence.
Arias resumed testimony Monday as her attorneys work to undo any damage from her withering cross-examination.
