A domestic violence expert is testifying in Jodi Arias' murder trial that the defendant was vulnerable at the time she met the victim and had a hard time declining his sexual advances.
Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette says she spent more than 40 hours interviewing Arias. She says Arias had a difficult childhood and grew up with little self-esteem.
Authorities say she planned the attack on her lover in a jealous rage. Arias initially told authorities she had nothing to do with it then said it was self-defense.
Arias says Alexander grew physically abusive prior to his death, but no evidence at trial has supported her claims. faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the June 2008 killing of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home.
