PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -

Jodi Arias has resumed testimony for an 18th day - a number rarely reached in any trial.

She's charged with first-degree murder in the June 2008 death of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home. Authorities say she planned the attack in a jealous rage. Arias says it was self-defense.

Prosecuting attorney Juan Martinez re-questioned Arias Wednesday morning, again grilling her over repeated lies in the case, after she faced questions from jurors last week.

Jurors made it clear they aren't satisfied with her explanations. Arias answered about 220 questions from the panel under an uncommon Arizona law that allows jurors to quiz defendants through written questions read aloud by the judge.

Arias could face the death penalty if convicted.
