We'll begin with jodi arias expected to appear in court today for a hearing about a new trial for the penalty phase of her murder case. Abc's ryan owens has more on the story. First degree murder guilty. Reporter: The jodi arias case, the sensational trial that riveted millions and even inspired a tv movie -- action. I'm just your dirty little secret? Reporter: Is about to get its real-life sequel. This morning, judge sherry stevens is expected to decide when the retrial of the penalty phase will begin. She said seed's like to start picking a new jury next month. Ma'am, were you crying when you were shooting him? Sfwli don't remember. Reporter: They will not hear the whole case again. The simple question before you is do you -- Reporter: Their only task will be decide to if areas should die for murdering her ex-boyfriend mormon businessman travis alexander back in 2008. Any juror who gets on there from this jury pool and says that they don't have any familiarity with this or haven't made up their mind, I think would probably need to be strapped into a polygraph. Reporter: Still jodi arias' attorneys are hoping her retrial will not be as high profile filing this motion to keep cameras out or to at least forbid the trial from being broadcast live all over cable tv. The defense says the publicity was so intense, two witnesses domestic violence expert alyce LaVIOLETTE AND AREAS' CHILDHOOD Friend patty womack received death threats and are too scared to testify for round two. The judge may not buy that argument since it was jodi arias who couldn't seem to stay away from the cameras granting interviews as the first jury delivered her fate including this contentious one with me. If you were on that jury and you had heard what they have heard, would you kill you? I don't believe in capital punishment. So the answer would be no. Reporter: Along with the media defense attorneys are also worried about social media. They're asking the judge to compel any of those new jurors to release any of their twitter accounts so they can be monitored during the retrial. The problem here, george, is you probably remember jodi arias has her own twitter account. She's been busy tweeting again just yesterday posting a quote about how you can't trust the media.
