Exchanges heat up between prosecutor, psyche expert during Arias trial

Testimony has concluded for the day in Jodi Arias' murder trial as the prosecutor worked to undermine a defense witness' credibility and accused her of being biased.

Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette has been testifying for more than a week about her conclusion that Arias suffered domestic abuse by the victim.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez accused her on Monday of being biased, noting how the woman apologized to Arias upon their first meeting for having read her journals. LaViolette denied the accusations. She resumes testimony Tuesday.

Arias faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home. Authorities say she planned the attack in a jealous rage, but Arias says it was self-defense.
