Arias judge restricts camera coverage of trial

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) - The judge in Jodi Arias' murder trial has issued restrictions on audio and video coverage of her upcoming second penalty phase.

In a Tuesday ruling, Judge Sherry Stephens writes that video coverage will be allowed, but the footage can't be used until after the verdict. However, Stephens also ruled that any live broadcast must have a 15-minute delay.

Arias was convicted of murder last year in the 2008 killing of her lover, but jurors couldn't reach a decision on a sentence. A second penalty phase is set for September as prosecutors again seek a death sentence.

Messages left for attorneys and the judge seeking clarification on the ruling were not immediately returned.

Media lawyers had argued for the same live TV coverage that occurred during Arias' first trial.
