Jodi Arias Trial: Jurors resume deliberations

PHOENIX - The jury in Jodi Arias' Arizona murder trial is set to resume deliberations Tuesday.
 
Jurors concluded their first full day of deliberations on Monday after getting the case late Friday afternoon.

TIMELINE: Jodi Arias Trial
 
The 32-year-old is charged with first-degree murder in the June 2008 death of her one-time boyfriend Travis Alexander at his suburban Phoenix home. He was shot in the head and stabbed and slashed nearly 30 times. Jurors could also convict her of second-degree murder or manslaughter.
 
Prosecutors say Arias planned the attack in a jealous rage.
 
Arias initially denied involvement then blamed it on two masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said she killed Alexander in self-defense.
 
Testimony in the case began in early January, and Arias spent 18 days on the witness stand beginning in early February.
