Another day and another day of testimony in the ongoing saga that is the Jodi Arias murder trial in Phoenix, Arizona, which has lasted more than 40 days. Arias stands accused of murdering her boyfriend Travis Alexander in June 2008. Arias' attorneys maintain that their client was acting in self-defense after Alexander went into a rage after Arias dropped his camera. The prosecution, led by Juan Martinez, maintains that Arias had planned the attack, which resulted in Alexander being shot in the face and stabbed 29 times.
Arias' attorneys maintains that she was physically, sexually, and emotionally abused by Alexander on a regular basis, and that these experiences prompted Arias to contract post-traumatic stress disorder.
If convicted of first degree murder, Arias could receive the death penalty.
