Jodi Arias, the woman accused of killing her boyfriend, testified in Phoenix that she only meant to point the gun at the victim in self-defense.
Prosecutor Juan Martinez previously argued Arias planned the murder, and stole a .25-caliber gun from her grandmother in California to kill the victim, Travis Alexander.
But Arias said Tuesday she used Alexander's gun, and only meant to point it at him to prevent abuse, KTVK-TV, Phoenix, reported.
Martinez also argued Arias flipped her car's license plate during her road trip from California to Arizona to avoid detection, but Arias said she saw kids in a store parking lot tampering with the plate.
Wednesday afternoon, Arias will answer the jurors' 100 questions for Arias, The Arizona Republic said. The Republic said the attorneys will read the approved questions to Arias at 1 p.m.
Arias has now spent 15 days testifying, ABC News reported, describing the sex life she had with Alexander.
The defense hopes to convince the jury that Arias killed Alexander while defending herself after months of strange sexual encounters and abuse, ABC News said.
