Jodi Arias to continue testimony, defense up next

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

The murder trial of Jodi Arias resumes Monday in downtown Phoenix.

Arias will still be on the stand testifying for her 14th day.

After an intense grilling from the prosecution last week, that focused on her lies to family, friends and investigators, Arias will be facing more friendly questioning from her defense attorney.

Jodi Arias' attorney is expected to be doing damage control Monday.

Arias appeared to break down on the stand when the prosecutor showed a crime scene photo of her boyfriend Travis Alexander, dead in the shower with his throat sliced ear to ear.

"Ma'am, were you crying when you were shooting him?" said prosecutor Juan Martinez.

"I don't remember," said Arias.

"Were you crying when you were stabbing him?" said Martinez.

"I don't remember," said Arias.

"How about when you cut his throat, were you crying then?" said Martinez.

"I don't know," said Arias.

Arias admits to killing Alexander at his Mesa house in 2008, only she says it was in self-defense.

However, her story has changed over the years. First she denied the murder, then she blamed it on intruders, before saying it was self-defense.

"You're the one that did this right?" said Martinez.

"Yes," said Arias.

"Yes and you're the same individual that lied about all this right?" said Martinez

"Yes," said Arias.

Arias admits to getting rid of the murder weapons.

But she claims she was in a fog and couldn't remember other key details.

Still, the prosecution pressed on.

"And you would acknowledge that stabbing was with a knife?" said Martinez.

"Yes," said Arias.

"And according to your version of events, you would acknowledge that stabbing was after the shooting right?" said Martinez.

"I do not remember, I do not remember that," said Arias.

"I am not asking if you remember, I am asking if you acknowledge you did it," said Martinez.

"Correct, yes," said Arias.

Once the defense is done questioning Arias, jurors will also get a chance to ask questions,which could give us a peek into what their take is on this trial.

If convicted Arias could face the death penalty.
