Tucson judge issues cease and desist order in case

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A defense investigator has been told to stop contacting members of a Tucson jury who convicted a once-prominent U.S. socialite last week in the 1996 car bomb killing of her ex-husband.

Pima County Superior Court officials said Wednesday that Judge Richard Fields has signed a cease and desist order.

They say it was brought to the court's attention that a central witness in the Pamela Phillips trial was actively attempting to contact jurors.

The judge says no hint of juror misconduct has been shown and ``the defense shall cease and desist from having their investigator contact jurors immediately.''

Phillips was convicted April 8 of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Tucson businessman Gary Triano.

She faces life in prison at her May 22 sentencing hearing.
