Testimony resumes in Jodi Arias murder trial

PHOENIX (AP) — A prosecutor in Jodi Arias’ murder trial is questioning a defense expert who says the defendant was a domestic abuse victim, as the witness acknowledged she has no way of knowing whether Arias is being truthful.

Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette has been testifying for more than a week about her conclusion that Arias was a victim based on interviews and a review of thousands of pages of records.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez today hammered LaViolette over how she could know Arias didn’t lie to her. The witness says she believed Arias, but has no way of knowing whether she was truthful.

Arias faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of Travis Alexander. Authorities say she planned the attack. Arias says it was self-defense.
