PHOENIX, ARIZONA (PIX11)–  The woman accused of brutally murdering her boyfriend in 2008 broke down on the stand as she was grilled about details in the death of Travis Alexander.

She began to lose it when prosecutors showed Jodi Arias photos of the crime scene.

Arias says she killed Alexander in self-defense when he attacked her for dropping his camera.

The prosecution says she shot and stabbed him multiple times in a fit of jealous rage.

Police say Arias snapped these photos of Alexander naked in the shower just minutes before she killed him.
