PHOENIX - The Jodi Arias trial has resumed Tuesday afternoon after court was adjourned earlier without Arias making it up to the witness stand.
After a delay until about 11:15 a.m., Arias walked into the courtroom apparently in tears.
The judge said court was adjourned until 1 p.m. and "matters need to be resolved."
Arias is charged in the 2008 stabbing and shooting death of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, in Mesa, Ariz.
She is set to continue testifying for a sixth day Wednesday.
Arias faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.
Arias sobbed Monday as she described for jurors how Alexander abused her both mentally and physically, once kicking her in the ribs and breaking her finger.
His friends say she is lying.
She has testified in Phoenix about their volatile relationship and claims she killed Alexander in self-defense. Prosecutors say Arias killed him in a rage, stabbing and slashing him 27 times, slitting his throat and shooting him in the head.
Arias initially denied involvement in the killing before settling on self-defense.
