Woman in Ariz. slaying describes killing boyfriend

PHOENIX - Murder defendant Jodi Arias has testified that she can't remember how she killed her lover during a violent fight at his house nearly five years ago.

After more than a week on the stand, Arias finally got to the killing of Travis Alexander on Wednesday. But she couldn't remember stabbing Alexander or even if she shot him.

Arias said she accidentally dropped a camera while taking provocative photos of Alexander in his shower. She said he flew into a rage over the camera and body-slammed her. He chased her around the house, and Arias grabbed a gun from his closet. She says it went off while they tussled.

Arias is trying to avoid the death penalty and a premeditated murder conviction. Prosecutors say she killed him because of jealousy.
