PHOENIX (AP) - A woman charged in the shooting and stabbing death of her boyfriend is set for trial.

Jodi Arias could become the fourth female on Arizona's death row if she is convicted in the June 2008 killing of Travis Alexander.

The Arizona Republic reports (http://bit.ly/TYIirC) attorneys will present opening statements on Wednesday.

Authorities say 32-year-old Arias shot Alexander in the face, stabbed him 27 times and slit his throat, then left him in a shower in his Mesa home. Arias claims the killing was self-defense while prosecutors argue the actions were those of a jealous woman who brutally attacked 30-year-old Alexander after he tried to end their relationship.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
