Arias' attorneys submit request for camera ban in court

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

A big hearing in the Jodi Arias murder trial is coming up on Monday, and today, we learned about new moves by her defense team to make sure we don't see any more of her until she is either sentenced to death or life in prison.

Arias was convicted of first degree murder. The jury couldn't decide on life or death.

On Monday we should find out if the penalty phase of her case will be re-tried. It looks like it is going to be.

Her defense attorneys don't want any cameras in the courtroom this time around.

The Jodi Arias murder trial became a nationwide spectacle, with every minute of the proceedings broadcast on cable TV and the internet. Millions tuned in.

But that could change.

In a filing released Friday, Arias and her defense team are asking for an all-out ban on cameras in the courtroom. And if any video is allowed, that that video not be aired until after the entire trial is over.

Arias and her attorneys also want to be able to question prospective jurors individually and with no time limit.

And as we reported earlier this week, the defense also wants access to the Twitter accounts of prospective jurors so they can keep an eye on what they are doing online.

The judge has to rule on all of these motions. I'll be in court on Monday morning. I'll let you know what happens.
