Three witnesses took the stand by late morning Tuesday as the prosecutor works to show juror Arias is lying. A colleague of the victim testified the couple appeared affectionate together. Arias says her one-time boyfriend Travis Alexander shunned her in public, only showing affection privately.

Clinical psychologist Janeen DeMarte earlier testified that Arias wasn't a battered woman and doesn't suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder or amnesia.

Defense experts had testified that Arias suffers from the conditions, which explains why she can't recall much from the day she says she killed Alexander in self-defense.

Arias faces a potential death sentence if convicted of first-degree-murder.
