PHOENIX (AP) -- Jodi Arias has concluded her 16th day on the witness stand after being peppered with questions from jurors deciding her fate in her Arizona death penalty case.
Arias is charged in the June 2008 killing of her lover in his suburban Phoenix home. She says it was self-defense, but police say she planned the attack in a jealous rage.
Arizona is one of just a few states where jurors are allowed to ask questions of witnesses during a criminal trial as a matter of law, meaning the judge is required to notify them of their right to pose queries. In other states, the process is either banned or it's left up to the discretion of judges to determine whether jurors in criminal cases may ask questions of witnesses.
Arias returns to the stand Thursday.
