A self-help author's manslaughter trial has drawn spectators from around Arizona and vacationers curious about the sweat lodge ceremony he conducted that turned deadly.

Testimony in James Arthur Ray's trial enters its fourth week Tuesday and is expected to stretch into June.

The audience has been a mix of Ray and victim family members, American Indians concerned about a traditional practice and others curious about what drove dozens of people to Ray's weeklong seminar near Sedona in October 2009.

Ray has pleaded not guilty to three counts of manslaughter in the deaths of Kirby Brown, James Shore and Liz Neuman.

Before Brown's parents returned home after the second week of testimony, they asked a group of American Indians to represent their daughter's spirit at the trial.
