PHOENIX (AP) — A woman charged with stabbing her lover to death in the shower says she felt used by the victim with his constant sexual advances.

Jodi Arias took the witness stand for a third day as she described the early stages of her relationship with Travis Alexander.

She said the relationship was an odd mix. Alexander was a devout Mormon who was sending missionaries to her house to convert her to the religion. But at the same time, he was pushing for sexual acts.

Arias faces the death penalty if convicted. She says she killed Alexander in self-defense.
