A psychologist who diagnosed Jodi Arias with post-traumatic stress disorder and amnesia concluded nearly six days of testimony on Monday. The prosecutor questioned his credibility and accused him of forming a relationship with Arias that biased his diagnosis.

Psychologist Richard Samuels denied the accusations. He said he based his diagnosis on 35 years of experience and multiple tests.

Arias faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of Travis Alexander.

Authorities said she planned the attack on her lover. Arias first denied any involvement, then said it was self-defense.
