PHOENIX (AP) — Testimony has concluded for the day in the trial of a woman charged in the 2008 stabbing and shooting death of her lover in Arizona.
Jodi Arias faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder in the killing of Travis Alexander. Arias is set to return to the witness stand Wednesday for her sixth day of testimony.
Jurors on Tuesday were played sexually explicit phone conversations between Arias and Alexander.
The recordings ranged from raunchy talk to discussions about "Batman" and "Spider-Man" movies and Alanis Morissette songs.
Arias claims she killed Alexander in self-defense. Prosecutors say Arias killed him in a rage, stabbing and slashing him 27 times, slitting his throat and shooting him in the head.
Arias initially denied involvement before settling on self-defense.
