Navajo student on trial for murder in Arizona
Testimony began on Thursday in the first-degree murder trial of Galareka Harrison, a Navajo student accused of killing a fellow Navajo student at University of Arizona.

Harrison allegedly stabbed her roommate, Mia Henderson, more than 20 times. Henderson died in the early morning hours of September 5, 2007.

Authorities said Harrison and Henderson were feuding over Harrison's alleged theft from Henderson. Both were participating in the Native American First-Year Scholars Program.

Harrison, who was 18 at the time of the incident, is claiming self-defense. Henderson was 18 when she died.

Henderson's family has filed a negligence suit against the university.
