Jodi Arias Faces Jury Questioning In Murder Trial (LIVE UPDATES)

Jodi Arias will be faced with questions from the jury in her first-degree murder trial for a second time Thursday.

Arizona is one of three states that allow jurors to pose questions to witnesses after prosecution and defense lawyers have finished their questioning.

The jury's questions were first put to Arias Wednesday by Judge Sherry Stephens.

Arias, 32, is accused of the June 4, 2008, slaying of Travis Alexander inside his Mesa, Ariz., apartment. The prosecution contends Arias stabbed Alexander 27 times, shot him twice in the face and slashed his throat in a jealous rage. Arias told jurors she killed her ex-boyfriend in self-defense during an argument over a dropped camera that followed his escalating sexual demands.

The questions that have already been presented to the defendant –- many of which Arias answered in rapid succession -- covered subjects that included her sex life and the murder. The most relevant of those questions, along with Arias' answers, can be found in HuffPost Crime’s end of day trial recap.

The jurors' questions and Arias' answers could prove to be a defining moment in the trial that will ultimately have a large impact on her fate. Arias faces the death penalty if convicted.

The trial is scheduled to resume at about 12:30 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, when juror questions will again be presented to Arias.

Martinez pointed out there are multiple restaurants in that particular food chain.

Arias earlier said that she told the manager about the injury but did not fill out any paperwork.

She is now saying she does not know what she said, but does remember she had asked for a bandage

Wal-Mart

Martinez said the Wal-Mart where Arias claims she returned the fuel can has no record of the alleged transaction.

"Would it surprise you that Wal-Mart does not have any record of any refund for a gas can on that date," Martinez asked.

Arias maintained she returned it and received cash.

More Arias' Gas Questions

Arias testified earlier in the trial that she had bought a third fuel can at a Wal-Mart in Salinas, Calif., for her trip, but returned it the same day. Martinez pointed out that if she had returned the can like she said, then why did she have three cans with her on June 6, 2008.
