Arias lied repeatedly throughout her evaluation conducted by a psychologist hired by the defense, who diagnosed her with amnesia and post-traumatic stress disorder, but most of the falsities were irrelevant to his ultimate conclusions about her mental state, the psychologist testified Tuesday March 19, 2013, at Arias' murder trial.(AP Photo/The Arizona Republic,Tom Tingle, Pool, file)
Psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette says many victims of such abuse don't report it and rarely tell anyone because they feel ashamed and humiliated. The defense witness returns to the witness stand for a third day on Thursday.
Arias faces a possible death sentence if convicted of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home.
