HLN will cover the aggravation phase of the Jodi Arias trial live starting at 1 p.m. ET Wednesday. HLNtv.com will live-blog the proceedings.
Judge Sherry Stephens has banned Jodi Arias from participating in any more interviews with the media.
This announcement came after a mystery hearing regarding the trial was held on Tuesday. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office released the following advisory to HLN:
"Moments ago, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office received an order from the Superior Court of Arizona and Honorable Judge Sherry Stephens that from today, prohibits Sheriff's Office officials from approaching defendant Jodi Arias for the purposes of media interview requests."
The sheriff's office said it will abide by the judge's order.
"We will not attempt to contact Arias for purposes of media interviews until that order is lifted by the court.
Once the court lifts the order, and if inmate Arias agrees to do interviews, all interested media parties will be notified immediately by Sheriff's PIO via email. Interviews will be conducted thereafter in the order already received."
Arias was convicted last week of first-degree murderin the death of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. Immediately following the verdict, Arias conducted an interview with a local Fox news reporter in which she said she'd rather die than spend life in prison.
On Wednesday, the jury will determine whether Arias' actions were cruel enough for her to face the death penalty. HLN will be airing that hearing live starting at 1 p.m. ET.
