Jodi Arias' first-degree murder trial resumes Tuesday for the 2008 Arizona killing of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander.

The trial can be watched via the free live stream below. 

Prosecutor Juan Martinez grilled Arias' defense expert, PhD psychologist Richard Samuels, again on Monday after he testified that she has Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder on March 14. Samuels testified earlier in the trial that he observed Arias has anger management issues which prompted the prosecutor to question her bouts of anger. Martinez brought up an incident where Arias allegedly attacked her own mother, Sandy Arias, before she killed Alexander on June 4, 2008. 

"When she was a teenager, isn't it true that the defendant had such anger toward her mother Sandy, that she treated her like crap," Martinez asked Samuels.

"Yes," said Samuels.

"And isn't it true that they argued all the time, right?" Martinez asked to which Samuels replied, "Yes."

"And isn't it true that during that time, the defendant hit Sandy (Arias) for no reason?" asked Martinez, who received a "Yes," from Samuels.

"And this was all before this June 4, 2008 incident?" asked Martinez.

"But it's irrelevant for the diagnosis," Samuels quickly replied.

Martinez then inquired about Arias' alleged physical assault on her parent.

"Isn't it true that, at some point, one of the times that they were together, they were sitting down for dinner or something and isn't it true that the defendant got mad and kicked Sandy for no reason?" Martinez inquired.

"I read that, yes," said Samuels. "That's what it says, yes," Samuels confirmed.

"For no reason, right?" asked Martinez."That's what it says, yes," said Samuels.

Sandy has sat in the Maricopa County court room almost every day since the murder trial began in early January. Jodi has testified that her mother and father beat her when she was younger.

A second defense expert, Alyce LaViolette, testified after Samuels was questioned about Jodi's assault on her mother.

LaViolette has worked with domestic violence victims since 1978, according to her website, and oversees a training program for battered victims. She has testified as a criminal expert witness on the stand for many trials including criminal, civil and family courts for various offenses including homicides and child custody. LaViolette's website said she specializes in "anger management, domestic violence counseling for survivors and perpetrators." She also wrote the book It Could Happen To Anyone: Why Battered Women Stay.

Jodi, 31, is on trial for murdering her ex-lover, Alexander, a 30-year-old Mormon motivational speaker. Arias stabbed her victim over 27 times, slit his throat from ear to ear and shot him in the head. His body was discovered the day he was killed: June 4, 2008. Arias lied twice at first about how he was killed and later admitted that she killed him in an act of self-defense.

If Jodi is convicted of the murder and the lies that she confessed to, she will likely face the death penalty and become the fourth woman in Arizona's history to die by lethal injection.

Watch the live stream of Arias' murder trial on Tuesday, March 26, below beginning at 12:30 p.m. EST.
