Bloody photos shown in murder trial of Jodi Arias

PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -

Jurors will be back in court Wednesday for the fourth day of testimony in the murder trial of Jodi Arias.

Prosecutors presented some gruesome pictures of the crime scene on Tuesday.

Arias is accused of the brutal slaying of her former boyfriend, Travis Alexander.

Arias could become the fourth female on Arizona's death row if she is convicted in the June 2008 killing of the 30-year-old Alexander.

Authorities said Arias, 32, shot Alexander in the face, stabbed him 27 times and slit his throat, then left him in a shower in his Mesa home.

In the third day of testimony Tuesday, prosecutors showed photos of blood on bathroom tiles and a medical examiner explained wounds he found on Alexander during an autopsy.

The doctor who performed the autopsy broke down the sequence of Alexander's injuries.

"I felt that the gunshot wound may have been last, but in any event the gunshot wound and wound to the neck would have come after the defense wounds of the hands," the doctor said.

Arias claims the killing was in self-defense. Prosecutors argue the actions were those of a jealous woman who brutally attacked Alexander after he tried to end their relationship.
