Sources: Jodi Arias' migraine holds up trial

Jodi Arias is on trial for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.

When court is done for the day, the conversation is only just beginning. Watch HLN’s newest hit show "HLN After Dark: The Jodi Arias Trial" nightly at 10 p.m. on HLN.

When Judge Sherry Stephens canceled Wednesday’s court session in the Jodi Arias trial, her assistant and court officials did not provide a reason why. They simply told reporters court would resume Thursday morning.

Sources told Nancy Grace producer Alexis Weed that the reason for Wednesday’s trial cancellation was that Arias was suffering a migraine headache.

Defense domestic violence expert Alyce LaViolette had been scheduled to resume direct examination Wednesday morning after attorneys attended a hearing on disclosure of the costs of Arias’ defense. According to In Session’s Jean Casarez, defense attorney Jennifer Willmott gave Arias a glass of water at the end of the hearing and asked a deputy to make sure Arias takes her medication.

HLN reported that there was an extra recess during court proceedings on Tuesday because Arias was feeling faint.

Defense attorney Kirk Nurmi had complained earlier in the trial, on February 26, about Arias getting tired and having migraines because she was not being provided lunch. She was in the middle of tough cross-examination at the time.

Testimony is expected to resume Thursday at 12:30 p.m. ET.
