A key expert witness for murder defendant Jodi Arias admitted Monday under cross examination that he should have reexamined Arias after she admitted to lying.
Psychologist Richard Samuels earlier testified that Arias suffered from acute stress disorder, which developed into post-traumatic stress disorder. Samuels said he came to this conclusion after reviewing evidence in the case, examining Arias, and administering a test to diagnose PTSD.
During cross-examination, Juan Martinez pointed out Arias was given the test for PTSD before she admitted killing her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander. At the time the test was given, in January 2010, Arias was claiming two unknown intruders had killed Alexander.
