PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -
After days of cross-examination, the prosecution is trying to disprove Jodi Arias' self-defense claims of the day she killed her former lover.
Arias broke down on the witness stand Thursday morning as prosecutor Juan Martinez began a heated line of questioning about the day in 2008 when she killed her ex-boyfriend in his Mesa home.
A sobbing Arias responded, "I don't remember," as the prosecutor asked her whether she was crying when she shot and stabbed Travis Alexander and slit his throat.
As Arias continued to cry, the judge called an afternoon break to allow the defendant to compose herself before testimony resumed Thursday afternoon. After the break, Martinez asked Arias to demonstrate how Alexander "attacked" her.
"He lunged at me like a linebacker," she said.
Arias said she remembers climbing up Alexander's closet to get to his gun, and she remembers the gun going off. But everything after that became a fog.
"So, even in this fog, you still have the ability to think, to protect yourself, right?" Martinez asked.
"Um, yes," Arias replied.
Martinez confronted Arias about her attempts to create an alibi by calling Alexander's phone once she drove away - after he was already dead. Martinez also showed the court a text message and an email Arias sent Alexander after the killing. Arias admitted she was trying to cover up what happened.
"You would've been relieved to avoid any consequences in the killing of Mr. Alexander, correct?" Martinez asked.
"Um, that was my goal that day," Arias said.
Arias is charged in the June 2008 killing of Alexander. She says she was forced to fight for her life after Alexander attacked her. Police say she planned the killing in a jealous rage.
Martinez has been working to chip away at her numerous stories over nearly four days of intense cross-examination, during which she has admitted to lying repeatedly.
