PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Prosecutor Juan Martinez came out the gate firing Monday morning as Jodi Arias returned to the witness stand in the death of her ex-boyfriend.
"You have a problem with telling the truth, don't you?" Martinez said. Arias replied, "not typically."
Martinez has accused Arias of only telling the truth when it benefits her.
The 32-year-old is charged in the June 2008 stabbing and shooting death of her lover in his Mesa 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 is scheduled to return to the witness stand for her 11th day of testimony at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Arias first claimed no knowledge of the killing, then blamed it on masked intruders before eventually settling on self-defense.
Arias said in court Monday that she changed her story to match the evidence the detective was sharing with her while being interrogated. She claimed she didn't want Alexander's secrets revealed.
Martinez also questioned Arias on her alleged suicide attempts. Arias testified that she pricked her wrist and stopped because of the pain. Martinez said, Can you imagine how much it must have hurt Mr. Alexander when you stuck a knife in his chest?"
Last week, Arias claimed to recall little from the day of the killing.
Martinez questioned Arias about how she can remember details and dates of sexual exploits but can't remember details of Alexander's death.
Arias responded that she looked at old photographs to "refresh" her memory so she can remember dates, times and locations.
