PHOENIX (AP) -

The prosecutor in the Jodi Arias case has asked a judge to reject her attorneys' request to delay until next year the retrial of the penalty phase in her case.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez says in court filings that none of the reasons for the postponement that were offered by Arias' attorneys warrants a postponement.

Arias' attorneys asked for a postponement to allow their client time to gather witnesses to testify on her behalf.

They also have said they have scheduling conflicts with the current July 18 date set for retrial.

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

About two weeks later, the same panel failed to reach a unanimous decision on whether to her punishment.
