PHOENIX (AP) — Jodi Arias' murder trial resumes with testimony from a defense witness who ended her time on the stand last week discussing whether Snow White was a domestic violence victim.

Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette (la-VY'-oh-let) has been testifying for more than a week.

A prosecutor continues his cross-examination Monday after a bizarre end to last week's testimony that wrapped with his questioning of LaViolette over Snow White.

An ousted juror who was removed from the panel for apparent misconduct also returned to the courtroom last week to observe the trial from the gallery.

Arias faces a possible 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 in a jealous rage.
