PHOENIX — Jodi Arias is set to return to the witness stand for an 11th day
of testimony Tuesday in the death penalty case against her after a prosecutor grilled
her over her numerous lies to authorities.
The 32-year-old is charged in the June 2008 death of her lover in his suburban
Phoenix home. She said it was self-defense, but police said she planned the
attack on Travis Alexander in a jealous rage. Testimony began in early January.
hammered Arias about being dishonest with authorities, friends or family even
sending the victim’s grandmother flowers after she killed him, all in an attempt
to throw off suspicion and avoid being charged.
Arias said she was scared and ashamed.
