Jodi Arias Live Blog: Cross-Examination Of Murder Defendant Continues (LIVE UPDATES)

The confessed killer and the aggressive prosecutor are set to confront each other again Tuesday, as cross-examination resumes in Jodi Arias first-degree murder trial.

In her 10th day on the witness stand on Monday, Jodi Arias faced a blistering attack from Maricopa County prosecutor Juan Martinez, ruffling her composure throughout the proceeding.

At one point, Arias told the court that only God knew what she was thinking when she killed her boyfriend Travis Alexander.

"God's not here. We can't subpoena him," a snarky Martinez shot back.

The veteran prosecutor has attempted to portray arias as a jealous and bitter ex-girlfriend, who took her anger out on Alexander when she shot him in the head, stabbed him 27 times and cut his throat from ear to ear inside his Mesa, Ariz., home on June 4, 2008.

The 32-year-old photographer claims self-defense in the killing, claiming a violent prone Alexander attacked her when she dropped his camera.

Arias faces the death penalty if convicted in a trial that has drawn world-wide attention.
