PHOENIX - Jodi Arias lover traded barbs with a prosecutor as she struggled to explain why she can recall precise details of her life from years earlier, yet can't remember crucial aspects of the murder case against her.
The 32-year-old Arias faces a potential death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the June 2008 killing of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home. She testified for a ninth day Thursday as the prosecution began its cross-examination, hammering her with questions about her apparent selective memory.
Questioning grew so heated that the judge admonished Arias and prosecutor Juan Martinez to stop talking over each other. Arias smirked at times while Martinez stammered in frustration.
Arias testified on Wednesday she recalled little about the day of the killing.
