Judge Sherry Stephens is hoping to minimize the spectacle this time by banning live television coverage.
"The court expects there will be significantly less media coverage of the case during the retrial of the penalty phase," Stephens
wrote in a ruling published Friday.
The judge also banned the use of all electronic devices inside the courtroom, meaning reporters won't be able to use Twitter, as occurred during the first trial, to deliver the public real-time updates.
Arias' lawyers wanted the retrial moved out of the Phoenix metropolitan area because of excessive publicity, but Stephens
ruled the move wasn't necessary as she
plans to summon 400 prospective jurors.
"Jurors with preconceived notions about the appropriate sentence will be excused," Stephens
also denied a defense motion to sequester the jury for the duration of what is expected to be a two-month trial.
