Jodi Arias resumes testimony in her Arizona murder trial after a withering cross-examination last week by a prosecutor working to poke holes in her numerous stories.

The 32-year-old is charged in the June 2008 stabbing and shooting death of her lover in his suburban Phoenix home. She claims self-defense, while authorities say she planned the attack on Travis Alexander in a jealous rage. Testimony has been ongoing since early January.

Arias lost a bid last week aimed at getting a reprieve from a potential death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder after the Arizona Supreme Court swiftly denied her motion that claimed a detective committed perjury in the case.

She returns to the witness Monday morning.

Last week, Arias claimed to recall little from the day of the killing.
