PHOENIX (AP) -
A judge has denied a mistrial motion in the trial of an Arizona woman accused in the shooting and stabbing death of her boyfriend.
Jodi Arias' defense lawyers asked for the mistrial Thursday after accusing a prosecution witness of perjury.
The motion was denied and the trial is scheduled to resume Monday.
The 32-year-old Arias could become the fourth female on Arizona's death row if she's convicted in the June 2008 killing of 30-year-old Travis Alexander.
Authorities say Arias shot Alexander in the face, stabbed him 27 times and slit his throat, then left him in a shower in his Mesa home.
Arias claims the killing was in self-defense. Prosecutors argue the actions were those of a jealous woman who brutally attacked Alexander after he tried to end their relationship.
