PHOENIX (AP) - Jodi Arias is set to resume testimony Thursday in the death penalty case against her as a prosecutor methodically chips away at her numerous stories.

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 has been meticulously picking apart her stories.

On Wednesday, Arias acknowledged she enjoyed raunchy sex acts with the victim contrary to previous testimony that he coerced her to perform them, at times making her feel like a prostitute.
