Jodi Arias trial canceled for Wednesday

PHOENIX (AP) - Jodi Arias' murder trial has been canceled for the day.

The court did not provide a reason. Testimony is set to resume Thursday with a domestic violence expert who is testifying about the generalities of abusers and victims.

Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette said Tuesday that many victims of such abuse don't report it and rarely tell anyone because they feel ashamed and humiliated.

Arias faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home.

Authorities say she planned the attack on her lover. Arias initially told authorities she had nothing to do with it then said it was self-defense.

Arias says Alexander grew physically abusive prior to his death, but no trial evidence has supported her claims.
