PHOENIX (AP) - Jurors are hearing sexually explicit phone conversations between murder defendant Jodi Arias and the man she's accused of killing in 2008. Jodi Arias faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder in the killing of Travis Alexander in 2008. She has been testifying for five days - often in explicit detail - about her relationship with Alexander.
The phone recordings played Tuesday ranged from raunchy conversations to discussions about "Batman" and "Spider-Man" movies and Alanis Morissette songs. Arias claims she killed Alexander in self-defense. Prosecutors say Arias killed him in a rage, stabbing and slashing him 27 times, slitting his throat and shooting him in the head. Arias initially denied involvement before settling on self-defense.
