Arias answers juror questions in murder case
By BRIAN SKOLOFF
PHOENIX (AP) -- Jodi Arias has started answering jurors' questions in the trial over the killing of her lover.
Judge Sherry Stephens is reading a selection of the questions to Arias. They included a question about why Arias continued her affair with Travis Alexander after she says she found out he was interested in young boys.
Arizona is one of just a few states where jurors are allowed to ask questions of witnesses during a criminal trial as a matter of law. Many other states, including California, allow the practice at the judge's discretion, but not all agree it's a good idea.
