PHOENIX - Jodi Arias has concluded her 17th day of testimony in her Arizona death penalty trial after being grilled with questions from jurors who don't seem satisfied with her stories in the murder case.
Arias is charged in the 2008 killing of her lover in his suburban Phoenix home. She says it was self-defense. Authorities say she planned the attack on Travis Alexander in a jealous rage.
Arizona is one of a few states where jurors in criminal trials can ask questions of witnesses. In other states, it's up to the discretion of the judge.
The panel had about 220 questions for Arias over two days focused on her memory lapses, why she never tried to save Alexander's life and lies about her involvement.
She is set to resume testimony Wednesday.
