Jodi Arias Trial Continues

News and notes - A jet plane crash in Georgia has left five passengers dead, two survived and were rushed to the hospital, more below, including video.

In Arizona, the murder trial of Jodi Arias continues, she says she recalls shooting her lover in the shower, but does not recall stabbing him almost thirty times.

The 32-year old brunette could face the death penalty if convicted of murdering Travis Alexander, whose body was found in the shower of his Phoenix area home.

Arias testified on Wednesday that on the day he was killed in June 2008, Alexander became irate and body slammed her in the bathroom after she dropped a camera while taking photographs of him in the shower "to document his newly sculpted body."

She claimed in court that she then ran from the bathroom and retrieved his gun and pointed it at him with both hands as he was coming after her.

"I thought that would stop him ... He got like a linebacker, he got low and grabbed my waist ... the gun went off," she testified.

"After the gun went off, I thought, 'Crap, he's really going to be pissed now,'" she said.

She was asked by the defense if she feared her lover would kill her that day and Arias answered from the witness stand, "For sure, he'd almost killed me before, now he was going to."

Next Arias said that Alexander just kept coming.

"He wouldn't stop ... I have no memory of stabbing him." But then she did remember dropping the knife and screaming. "It was like mortal terror," she said.

Jodi Arias is accused of shooting her ex-boyfriend in the face, stabbing him multiple times and slitting his throat from ear to ear in June 2008.

Georgia Plane crash...

According to CNN, the light jet aircraft landed at Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport in Thomson, and ran off the end of the runway, according to Kathleen Bergen, a Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman.

"Apparently, it looks like it may have overshot the runway, just barely missing a manufacturing building and crashing in the woods," says Chief Deputy Ronnie Williamson, of the McDuffie County Sheriff's Office.

The flight took off from John C. Tune Airport in Nashville, Tennessee.

The McDuffie County Sheriff's Office says that the plane may have clipped a high power line.
