Arizona jury has 100 questions for Jodi Arias

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX, Az. -

Jodi Arias'' defense attorney has concluded questioning her in her Arizona death penalty case after a day of testimony that largely repeated previous details from the day she killed her lover.

The 32-year-old is charged in the June 2008 killing of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home. She says it was self-defense, but police say she planned the attack in a jealous rage. Arias initially told authorities she had nothing to do with Alexander's death, then blamed it on masked intruders before settling on self-defense.

Arias is back on the witness stand Wednesday afternoon. She has been testifying for two weeks.

Jurors will now have the opportunity to pose their own questions to the defendant through written queries presented to the judge, something allowed in Arizona criminal cases. At the close of Tuesday's session, the judge announced the jury had 100 questions for Arias. The defense and prosecution will get to look over the questions Wednesday morning to form any possible objections.
