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.
