PHOENIX -

Testimony continued Monday in downtown Phoenix in the murder trial of Jodi Arias. Monday, the jury got a glimpse of her boyfriend in photos taken moments before he was stabbed and shot to death.

Those images were found on Alexander's camera. Arias admitted to killing Alexander, but claims it was self-defense.

Arias and Alexander had been broken up for months, but the day of his murder, they met and had sex.

Alexander took nude photos of Arias -- some of them seductive, others pornographic. The photos prove the two were together that day. Those photos were taken all the way up to time Travis Alexander was killed.

Jodi Arias covered her face Monday when sexually graphic pictures of her were shown to the jury. Travis Alexander's family became emotional seeing pictures of him in the shower taken just minutes before he was killed.

Mesa Police Officer Michael Melendez showed the jury how he was able to access the pictures on Alexander's camera -- pictures that had been deleted.

Police say Arias deleted the photos then put the camera in a washing machine. Investigators restored the pictures, thanks to a memory card in the camera.

"When I look at it on my software I select image view and it shows me all the images," said Officer Melendez.

One photo shows Alexander sitting down in the shower. Less than two minutes later, another photo shows what appears to be a bloody body on the ground.

The jury also saw old video of police questioning Arias, where she denied stealing and using the gun that killed Alexander. Arias' grandparents' gun had been reported stolen weeks before Alexander was killed. It was the same caliber gun used to kill Alexander.

Detective: "When did you report it stolen?"

Arias: "Um, I didn't even know that there were guns until my grandparents reported it stolen the day their house was broken into."

Detective: "When was that?"

Arias: "I don't remember. I guess a few months ago maybe."

Detective: "What did you do with the gun?"

Arias: "I don't have a gun."

On tape, she is also seen saying, "I didn't hurt Travis. If I hurt Travis, if I killed Travis I would beg for the death penalty."

The gun reported stolen from Arias' grandparents' house, days before Alexander was killed, was the same caliber gun used to shoot him.
