Jodi Arias Trial: Defense To Call Next Witness In Murder Trial (LIVE UPDATES)

Jodi Arias' death penalty trial is set to resume in Arizona today, following an aggressive follow-up by prosecutor Juan Martinez.

Arias concluded her 18th day of testimony in the murder trial on Wednesday. Martinez spent much of the day questioning Arias' version of the events on June 4, 2008 when her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander was shot and stabbed inside his Mesa home.

"Your scenario is impossible," a frustrated Martinez said regarding Arias' recollection that Alexander attacked her when she dropped his camera.

Arias is charged with first-degree murder in Alexander's slaying and prosecutors contends she 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 the dropped camera that followed his escalating sexual demands.

The trial is set to resume at about 12:30 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, when the defense is expected to call additional witnesses.
