Judge postpones Jodi Arias hearing to October

PHOENIX -- A judge has again rescheduled a hearing in the penalty phase of the Jodi Arias trial.

The original hearing was delayed after Arias' attorneys filed motions to gain access to the Twitter accounts of jurors and to limit the amount of live coverage granted to the trial. Stevens is also considering a request for a change of venue due to the enormous amounts of coverage the case received.

That live coverage helped turn the months-long trial into a hit on websites and cable TV, drawing hordes of spectators and media to the case.

Arias was convicted of first-degree murder on May 8 in the 2008 death of boyfriend Travis Alexander in 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.
