PHOENIX (AP) - Trial continues for a woman charged in the stabbing and shooting death of her lover in a June 2008 attack.
Jodi Arias is charged with murder in the killing of Travis Alexander. If convicted, she could get the death penalty, becoming just the fourth woman on Arizona's death row.
Authorities say she stabbed and slashed Alexander nearly 30 times, slit his throat, and shot him in the head June 4, 2008, at his Mesa home. Arias first told police she knew nothing of the killing. Later she said two intruders killed him while she managed to escape. She now admits to the killing, but claims she had to defend herself against an enraged and abusive Alexander.
The prosecution continues to present its case as trial resumes Thursday in Phoenix.
