Jurors resume deliberations in Jodi Arias trial

PHOENIX (AP) — The jury in Jodi Arias’ Arizona murder trial has resumed deliberations.

Jurors concluded their first full day of deliberations on Monday after getting the case late Friday afternoon.

The 32-year-old is charged with first-degree murder in the June 2008 death of her one-time boyfriend Travis Alexander at his suburban Phoenix home. He was shot in the head and stabbed and slashed nearly 30 times. Jurors could also convict her of second-degree murder or manslaughter.

Prosecutors say Arias planned the attack in a jealous rage.

Arias initially denied involvement then blamed it on two masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said she killed Alexander in self-defense.

Testimony in the case began in early January, and Arias spent 18 days on the witness stand beginning in early February.
