PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The prosecutor in Jodi Arias' murder trial is working to show the victim was "extremely afraid" of Arias in the months leading to his death.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez is questioning a defense witness who says Arias suffered domestic abuse by her lover.

Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette has been testifying for more than a week.

Martinez on Wednesday pointed out how Alexander told another woman in an email that he was "extremely afraid" of Arias' "stalking behavior."

LaViolette acknowledged the email's contents, but disputed that it meant Arias was stalking the victim.

Arias faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of Travis Alexander. Authorities say she planned the attack. Arias says it was self-defense.
