PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -

Testimony in Jodi Arias' murder trial has concluded for the week as the prosecutor calls rebuttal witnesses aimed at discrediting the defense case.

Clinical psychologist Janeen DeMarte wrapped testimony Thursday after saying that Arias wasn't a battered woman and doesn't suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder or amnesia.

Defense experts had testified about their diagnoses of PTSD and that the other disorder explains why Arias can't recall much from the day she killed her lover.

Jurors had at least 18 questions for DeMarte. One of them was, "What kind of people get borderline personality disorder?"

Another question was, "How many forensic cases have you worked on?"

Defense attorneys rested their case this week. They spent Thursday trying to undermine DeMarte's credibility.

Testimony resumes Tuesday.

Arias faces a potential death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in Travis Alexander's 2008 killing at his suburban Phoenix home. Arias says it was self-defense.
