Heated exchanges between Arias prosecutor, expert

Heated exchanges between Arias prosecutor, expert

PHOENIX (AP) — The Jodi Arias murder trial has resumed with more heated exchanges between a domestic violence expert and the prosecutor.

Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette and prosecutor Juan Martinez argued again today over questions about her resume and credibility.

LaViolette once was a speaker at a conference where she analyzed Snow White in the context of domestic violence.

Martinez attacked her credibility for taking part in a discussion about a fairytale. He raised questions today about whether she fudged her resume in describing her role in the conference.

LaViolette is a key witness for Arias as she tries to convince a jury that she killed Travis Alexander in self-defense after he was abusive toward her. Authorities say she planned the attack in a jealous rage.
