After spending the first part of Wednesday describing her sex life in graphic detail for the jury in her murder trial, Jodi Arias detailed a package she received from the ex-boyfriend she is accused of killing that contained several gifts, including boys' underwear.
"There were a variety of things … there were some chocolates ... beneath that was a shirt ... pink shorts [and] boys' underwear," Arias testified during questioning by her attorney during her third day on the witness stand. "They were Spiderman underwear ... I was confused … They were still in the package."
Arias said she received the package in the mail from Travis Alexander on Valentine's Day 2007, more than a year before Alexander's slaying. The shirts and the pink shorts both had the text "Travis Alexander's" screen-printed on them, Arias said. She said there was a letter inside the box, but didn't get a chance to describe it before court ended for the day.
Arias, a 32-year-old photographer, is accused of shooting Alexander in the face, stabbing him 27 times and slitting his throat from ear to ear in the shower of his Mesa, Ariz., apartment on June 4, 2008. Arias testified on Monday that Alexander "attacked me and I defended myself." Prosecutors allege she was a jealous and vengeful ex.

Earlier Wednesday, Arias told a packed courtroom about the evolution of her sexual relationship with Alexander. She testified they had oral sex and participated in "grinding," but that changed when Alexander baptized Arias into the Mormon faith on Nov. 26, 2006.
After the baptism, Arias said she and Alexander went back to her house and Alexander bent her over her bed and started to have anal sex with her. Arias testified the act was painful and she repeatedly asked him to stop. Arias said she felt like "a piece of toilet paper" afterward.
Arias' defense team has been trying to portray Alexander as a sex-obsessed abuser who was only interested in Arias for sexual gratification. The underwear testimony bolsters allegations made by Arias in court documents that Alexander had admitted in letters to her that he was a pedophile. Those letters have been deemed forgeries by prosecutors.
The trial is scheduled to resume Monday at 12:30 p.m. Eastern time, when Arias will resume her testimony.
If convicted, Arias faces the possibility of the death penalty.
