Arias resumes testimony in Arizona murder trial


PHOENIX (AP) — Jodi Arias has resumed testimony in her Arizona murder trial as a prosecutor continues working toward poking holes in her numerous stories and questioning her honesty.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez has accused Arias of only telling the truth when it benefits her.

The 32-year-old is charged in the June 2008 stabbing and shooting death of her lover in his suburban Phoenix home. She claims self-defense, while authorities say she planned the attack on Travis Alexander in a jealous rage. Testimony has been ongoing since early January.

Arias first claimed no knowledge of the killing, then blamed it on masked intruders before eventually settling on self-defense.

She returned to the witness stand Monday morning.

Last week, Arias claimed to recall little from the day of the killing.
