PHOENIX (AP) - The prosecutor in Jodi Arias' murder trial is working to show the victim was afraid of Arias before his death.
Prosecutor Juan Martinez has been questioning a defense witness who says Arias suffered domestic abuse by her lover.
Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette (la-VY'-oh-let) says she did not view Arias as a stalker, as the victim indicated to another woman.
LaViolette later noted how Travis Alexander may have made such comments, but he did so while continuing to invite Arias over sex. She explained that was not the behavior of a man who feared for his life.
Arias faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in Alexander's 2008 killing. Prosecutors say she planned the attack. Arias says it was self-defense.
LaViolette resumes testimony Thursday.
