PHOENIX (CBS5) -
State prosecutors on Thursday morning rested their case against Jodi Arias, the woman accused in the brutal murder of her ex-boyfriend, and the defense promptly followed up by pleading with Judge Sherry Stephens to dismiss the case.
A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesperson said attorneys argued a Rule 20 motion, which asks the judge to issue an acquittal from the bench. The defense claims the state had not problem its case. The judge has not yet made a decision on the motion. An evidentiary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Jan. 28.
The trial is scheduled to resume at 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 29, according to a Maricopa County Superior Court spokesperson.
Prosecution witness Leslie Udy, a friend of Arias, said she knew of the relationship between Arias and Travis Alexander and the subsequent break-up.
She also testified Thursday that she noticed cuts on Arias' hands and was told they were caused by broken glass after Alexander's death.
Udy said that Arias acted like she expected anyone else would when told of Alexander's death.
"She was very upset, distraught, crying, sobbing," Udy testified. She said Arias never admitted to her that she murdered Alexander or that there was any domestic violence in the relationship.
On Wednesday, the owner of the rental car Arias used when she drove from California to Mesa took the stand.
Arias is charged with first-degree murder in the 2008 death of Alexander at his Mesa home.
The trial is expected to continue at 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
Raphael Colombo of Budget Car Rental testified that Arias said she was going to stay local when she rented the car in California, but she returned it with more than 3,000 miles.
Her rental was left with Kool-Aid stains, missing floor mats and an upside-down license plate.
The jury also saw the police interview where Arias denied being in Mesa at the time of the murder.
Investigators said Alexander was shot in the head and stabbed 27 times.
Arias admitted to killing Alexander but claims it was in self-defense after he attacked her.
Prosecutors say she drove to Mesa in a jealous rage and murdered him.
