PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -

The judge in Jodi Arias' murder trial has issued restrictions on audio and video coverage of her upcoming second penalty phase.

In a Tuesday ruling, Judge Sherry Stephens writes that video coverage will be allowed, but the footage can't be used until after the verdict has been reached. However, Stephens also ruled that any live broadcast must have a 15-minute delay.

Arias was convicted of murder last year in the 2008 killing of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, but jurors couldn't reach a decision on a sentence. A second penalty phase is set for September as prosecutors again seek a death sentence.

Media lawyers had argued for the same live TV coverage that occurred during Arias' first trial.

The penalty phase retrial is set for September.
