Jurors resume deliberations in Jodi Arias trial

Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - The jury in Jodi Arias' Arizona murder trial has resumed deliberations.

The panel concluded its second full day of deliberations on Tuesday without reaching a verdict.

The jury's new hours will be 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. until they reach a verdict, according to a spokesperson for the Superior Court of Arizona.

The 32-year-old Arias has been charged with first-degree murder in the June 2008 death of her 1-time boyfriend, Travis Alexander, at his suburban Phoenix home. He was shot in the head and stabbed and slashed nearly 30 times. Jurors could also convict her of second-degree murder or manslaughter.

Prosecutors say Arias planned the attack in a jealous rage.

Arias initially denied involvement, then blamed it on two masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said she killed Alexander in self-defense.

Testimony in the case began in early January, and Arias spent 18 days on the witness stand beginning in early February.
