PHOENIX (AP) - A woman charged in the stabbing and shooting death of her lover in Arizona is set to resume testimony in her death penalty trial.
Jodi Arias testified last week in Phoenix about the volatile relationship that culminated with her killing Travis Alexander after a lust-filled day of sex and raunchy photographs in June 2008.
The 32-year-old faces the death penalty if convicted. She is set to return to the witness stand Monday when trial resumes.
Prosecutors claim Arias killed Alexander in a jealous rage, stabbing and slashing him 27 times, slitting his throat and shooting him in the head.
Arias says it was self-defense after initially telling authorities she wasn't there. She then blamed it on masked intruders. She now claims Alexander attacked her, forcing her to fight for her life.
