Judge Limits Lawyer Access in Tucson Murder Case

Posted:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A judge has limited lawyers' access to a defendant accused in the car-bombing death of her ex-husband in Tucson.

Pamela Phillips is charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in the November 1996 death of Tucson businessman Gary Triano.

The Arizona Daily Star says a judge ruled at a hearing Thursday that Phillips' defense team will be limited to one-hour monthly meetings with her while she's in a restoration-to-competency program at Pima County Jail.

The 54-year-old Phillips is being held on $5 million bond.

She's accused of using portions of Triano's $2 million life insurance policy to pay ex-boyfriend Ronald Young to kill Triano.

Phillips and Young were indicted in October 2008.

Young was convicted in 2010 and sentenced to two life prison sentences.
