Defense to continue in Arizona boyfriend slaying

PHOENIX — Defense attorneys for a woman charged with killing her lover are
set to continue their case in a Phoenix courtroom.

Jodi Arias is accused of fatally shooting and stabbing Travis Alexander in June
2008 at his Mesa home.

The 32-year-old could become just the fourth woman on Arizona’s death row if
convicted.

Defense attorneys have been trying to portray the victim as a liar and cheat
who repeatedly deceived his friends and family, claiming he was a devout Mormon
saving himself for marriage when he was, in fact, sexually involved with
numerous women, including Arias.

Testimony continues Monday.

Prosecutors claim Arias killed Alexander in a jealous rage. She said it was
self-defense.

Alexander was stabbed and slashed 27 times, shot in the forehead and had his
throat slit.
