PHOENIX - A hearing set for Tuesday morning in the Jodi Arias murder trial has been moved to 10:30 a.m., according to the Maricopa County Superior Court.
The Status Conference and Motion to Continue Trial was initially scheduled for Thursday but was moved to 8:30 a.m. Tuesday earlier this month.
The court then tweeted it was pushed back to 10:30 a.m. due to scheduling conflicts.
The judge set the retrial date for a new penalty phase, something that could take several months as attorneys put on a mini-trial of sorts to get a fresh jury up to speed on the case. Jury selection alone could take weeks.
Arias was convicted of first-degree murder on May 8 in the June 2008 death of boyfriend Travis Alexander at his Mesa home.
