Jodi Arias was caught in yet another lie during Thursday’s testimony.

Arias’ former love interest Ryan Burns testified Wednesday that he hung out with Arias the day after she killed Travis Alexander and noticed she had a couple bandages on her hand.

She told him that she cut her hand on a glass at a Margaritaville restaurant she worked at back home in Yreka, California, said Burns. Prosecutor Juan Martinez called a witness Thursday to dispel Arias’ explanation for her injuries.

Former Siskiyou County, California, detective Nathan Mendes testified that there wasn’t a Margaritaville anywhere near Yreka or Siskiyou County. In fact, a quick online check of the Margaritaville locations shows there aren't any in California or in Oregon.

This isn’t the first time Arias has been caught not telling the truth. Arias has changed her story a few times about what happened to her former boyfriend.

Soon after Alexander’s body was found in June 2008, Arias told police she was not involved in Alexander's death. She later changed her story and told investigators that she witnessed two intruders break in and kill him. She eventually admitted to killing Alexander, saying it was in self-defense.

Mendes also testified Thursday about a search warrant he executed on Arias’ grandparents home in Yreka, where Arias was living in June 2008.

Martinez walked Mendes through receipts the detective seized at the house that document Arias’ fatal roadtrip to Mesa, Arizona, to see Alexander earlier in the month.

The receipts show that Arias rented a car in Redding, California, on June 2, 2008. The receipts then show that she made various purchases as she traveled south to Pasadena, California.

The receipts stop in Pasadena on June 3. The receipts then pick back up on June 6 in Sparks, Nevada.

No receipts were found in Arias’ grandparents house that were from Mesa on June 4, the day Alexander was killed.
