PHOENIX (AP) -

Testimony in Jodi Arias' murder trial has concluded for the day after a defense witness who says Arias suffered domestic abuse at the hands of the victim answered questions from jurors.

Jurors had roughly 100 questions for psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette.

Arizona is among a few states where jurors have the legal right to pose questions to witnesses through queries read by the judge.

The questions ranged from how the witness can know that Arias isn't lying to queries about Arias' childhood and her claims that the victim abused her.

Arias faces a potential death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of Travis Alexander. She says it was self-defense, but authorities say she planned the attack on her lover.

LaViolette returns to the stand Friday morning.
