PHOENIX (AP) - Lawyers for convicted killer Jodi Arias want her new sentencing moved out of the Phoenix metropolitan area because of excessive publicity.
The Arizona Republic reports Arias' defense team filed a motion Tuesday seeking a change of venue.
Her lawyers say their research indicates 70 percent of the media coverage in Arizona of the first trial took place in Maricopa County.
Arias' attorneys also want live television coverage prohibited for the retrial.
The 33-year-old Arias was convicted of first-degree murder May 8 in the 2008 death of boyfriend Travis Alexander at his suburban Phoenix home.
The same jury failed to reach a decision on whether she should get the death penalty, setting the stage for a second penalty phase.
A judge hasn't set a date for the new sentencing phase.
