"Ma'am were you crying when you were shooting him? Juan Martinez asked, his voice maintaining the same aggressive tone that had previously caused Arias' brain to scramble.

"I don't remember," Jodi Arias answered while palming her glasses and crying into her hand.

"Were you crying when you were stabbing him?" Juan Martinez grilled.

Jodi Arias' shoulders trembled then she replied, "I don't remember."

Again, Juan Martinez asked, "How about when you cut his throat? Were you crying then?

Jodi Arias continued to cry, then sniffed, shook her head and stated, "I don't know."

The courtroom was hushed as it was the first visible signs from Arias that she felt something regarding the horrific way in which she murdered her lover of several years.

Juan Martinez continued, urging Arias to look at photos of her handiwork.

"Well take a look ma'am. You're the one that did this right?" He asked.

Jodi Arias continued to sob then nodded her head, "Yes." she replied.

Juan Martinez then asked, "And you're the same individual that lied about this, right?"

Jodi Arias' cries grew stronger as she placed her other hand over her face, shielding herself from the jury, spectators and those watching on live stream.
"Yes," she answered while removing her glasses and once again covered her face with her hands.

Prosecutor Martinez again stated, "Then take a look at it."

Arias didn't look at the gruesome photos. Instead, she continued to sob in to her hands while covering her face.

Finally, Judge Sherry Stephens called for an early recess. Arias' attorney Kirk Nurmi approached and assisted her from the stand.

Court is scheduled to resume at 3:30 p.m. ET.
