Video of Travis Alexander taken before his death surfaces

PHOENIX -

Jodi Arias was back on the stand Monday. This time her lawyers did damage control after five contentious days of the prosecution detailing her lies, inconsistencies, and delving into the day she killed her boyfriend Travis Alexander.

Last week the prosecutor hammered Jodi Arias, tearing her story of emotional and physical abuse apart piece by piece.

Monday, it was the defense's turn to question Jodi for a second time, trying to repair the damage to their case.

Meanwhile, we uncovered exclusive video of Travis Alexander, dancing and having a good time, taken months before he was brutally killed. The YouTube user said it was taken at a work retreat, possibly the one where he met Jodi Arias.

It shows Travis in the red shirt, dancing and goofing around. It's the first video we've seen of him like this. He looks like he is having a good time.

In the courtroom Monday, defense attorney Kirk Nurmi tried to discount prosecutors' theory that Jodi didn't break her finger when Travis beat her. He showed this picture taken well after the incident allegedly happened, showing where her crooked finger looks fine.

But Jodi recreated that pose today, and showed her twisted finger can look normal in that pose.

She also read from her journal about her relationship with Travis.

"Sometimes my heart is sick and saddened by all that has come to pass. I don't understand it and at times I have trouble believing it. He makes me sick and he makes me happy. He makes me sad and miserable. And he makes me feel uplifted and beautiful," Jodi had written.

The defense will be back to question Jodi Arias on Tuesday.
