PHOENIX (AP) - Testimony is set to resume in the Jodi Arias murder trial as the prosecutor works to undermine the credibility of a defense witness who he accuses of being biased.
Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette (la-VY'-oh-let) has been testifying for more than a week about her conclusion that Arias suffered domestic abuse by the victim.
Prosecutor Juan Martinez on Monday noted how the woman apologized to Arias upon their first meeting for having read her journals. LaViolette denied the accusations. She resumes testimony Tuesday.
Arias faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the June 2008 killing of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home.
Authorities say she planned the attack in a jealous rage. Arias first denied any involvement, and later said it was self-defense.
