Jodi Arias' attorneys want a judge to allow them to monitor the Twitter accounts of jurors seated in her murder trial to be certain panelists aren't using social media to communicate details about the case.
That's according to a motion filed Wednesday.
Arias was convicted of murder May 8 in the 2008 death of boyfriend Travis Alexander in suburban Phoenix. The same jury failed to reach a decision on her sentence. Prosecutors are now deciding whether to seat a new panel for another penalty phase in pursuit of the death penalty.
In the motion, Arias' attorneys say they need access to jurors' Twitter accounts so Arias can get a fair trial.
Prosecutors had not yet filed a response to the motion and declined comment.
