Nurmi’s redirect examination is expected to last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Martinez will not get a chance to recross examine Arias, according to Arizona law.


However, after Nurmi finishes his redirect examination, the jurors will get a chance to ask Arias any questions they have before she exits the witness stand.

After the jurors’ questions are answered, the defense has a chance to rest its case at this point. However, they are expected to call a couple expert witnesses., possibly a psychologist and a domestic violence expert.

Martinez will then have a chance to call rebuttal witnesses after the defense rests. Alexander's friend Dave Hall is expected to testify that Alexander did not own a gun, contradicting Arias’ testimony about how the slaying took place, and it could also help establish premeditation.

After the prosecution wraps its rebuttal case, attorneys from both sides will give their closing arguments in their last attempt to sway the jury. The jury will then deliberate on Arias’ guilt or innocence.
