She says it was self-defense, but police say she planned the attack on Travis Alexander in a jealous rage. Arias initially told authorities she had nothing to do with Alexander’s death, then blamed it on masked intruders before settling on self-defense.

Arias is expected to resume testimony Monday when trial resumes.
